Visiting Schaumburg? Be sure to stop at Portillo's for a delicious Chili Cheese Dog with Onions or one of their Italian Beef sandwiches. You will NOT be disappointed.

The food was excellent. However the older lady taking the orders was impatient, even though we made apparent that it was our first time there and needed to read the menu.

Their burgers are incredible. Made fresh and very tasty. Their crinkle-cut fries are surprisingly crispy.

plus the salads are good, too! (like the tuna caesar salad or the poppyseed fruit salad or the chicken pecan salad or the chopped salad) don't miss the chocolate cake or a chocolate cake shake! even Kevin James ("Mike" from "Mike & Molly") likes the chocolate cake shake!

Love the hot dogs, hamburgers and italian sausage sandwiches. Their chopped salad is also very good. Their soft drinks and shakes are also very good. We always cater pasta here for teen parties. Good service.
