Simply Fantastic

There is not much I can say on this review that others have not already. The food is fantastic and the service was wonderful. I finally see why everyone is in love with this place. Keep up the great work! On a side note, the coleslaw is terrible!! Please change the recipe!

Portillo's is one of those "Oh, yeah!" type places. Burgers, Italian Beef, Hot Dogs, Salads, Ribs and just about anything else. The menu is BIG! I found I need a little time to look at the menu to decide what I want so I let those in a hurry pass me by. Speedy service is the order of the day... More

I love Portillos Italian beef and the combo is a nice treat! The chocolate eclair cake disappears every time I get it. I wish they would offer hotter peppers for sandwiches though!

There were two Portillo's in the area. Impressed with speed food was prepared. Kids felt pressured to order without asking questions, but it was during a busy lunch time. Little bit of everything on the menu. Salads, hot dogs, ribs all good.

Whenever we come "home" we have to stop at Portillos. Hard to choose between the roast beef or the Chicago hot dogs. Nice to get a beer, too! Wish they'd open one in Indy!

We got take out at Portillo's while traveling here from out of town. The Pecan chicken salad was a fresh and healthy option before the sinful chocolate cake. Yum!

We had a great time eating the hot dogs, Chicago style and the Chili Dog. The "dogs" were mouth watering and we were impressed with the menu variety. The lemonade was good as well. The service was fast and the place was clean. The staff was friendly and gave the children hats and crayons to keep them busy. I would... More
