Stopped in for lunch - had to get me a chicago dog. The place is super retro and filled of tons of cool 50s & 60's memorabilia. Lots of cool menu items and cheap too! They have lots to choose from. Anyways had the jumbo hot dog with all of the fixings; never had anything like it. It's funny how... More

We stopped in for a quick bite, and were super impressed. Tons of staff, clean and fun atmosphere, and great food. We had Chicago Style hot dogs, and they were delicious, and so were the fries. Kids loved it too. We joked about coming back for dinner for the Italian beefs. Wish they had one of these restaurants over the... More

When I think of Chicago food, I think of Italian beef, sausage and Chicago dogs. So that's what I had at Portillo's and it was great. Dog was perfect with all the fixins, and I also had a combo sandwich with beef and Italian sausage. It was the perfect meal for our first night in Chicagoland. It is also very... More

This place also has an Italian eatery inside, basically two different restaurants in one. Good food and very friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed the history displayed everywhere. Though very busy during my visit I would still eat here again.

They ran out of chocolate syrup and didn't notice until our order. It was a Wednesday night at 6:00. They didn't know what to do, so they sat our order under the lights, until I figured out it was our order and asked for the food until they figured out what to do. No one came up to us during...

Fantastic. Shared a roast beef and cheese crosiant, hotdog, and a cake shake.All my favorites! If you are here eat what was previously mentioned, order extra sweet peppers and go next door and get a chopped salad---those salads are to die for! This is the best taste of Chicago ever and you will crave it and make it a stop... More

It tastes soo good. Their hot dogs, burgers and Ribs, are amazingggg. but when ordering in the drive through it can take a while since there are so many orders, but if you are visiting Chicago you have to go to a Portillos.

The gal who suggested this place to me said "when folks leave Chicago they can't wait to return for Portillos".. much more than hot dogs, they have excellent fresh italian beef sandwiches, milkshakes, and malts. The fries are hot and crinkle cut. The drive-through has an actual person who stands outside to take your order.
