A Chicago favorite

I have rarely missed a trip to Chicago without going to Portillo's. If you are in the mood for a great hot dog, Polish sausage, Italian beef sandwich, this is the place. Be sure to try their fries and onion rings. This is Chicago Comfort Food at it's best.

Just watching them make the hot dogs is a hoot! They must have a hundred people working back there! Hot Dogs are great, but the Italian beef with provolone grilled peppers & onions is the bomb! The pasta bar is really good & the chocolate cake is to die for! Can't talk them in to coming to Wisconsin though. Maybe... More

Don't be fooled - there is way more to Portillo's than just hot dogs. The pasta/salad restaurant tucked inside is also quite good. But if you love hot dogs, you have add this place to your list. A must visit everytime we're in Schaumburg.

Can't ever go wrong with any Portillo's. Schaumburg location has a cute 50's-60's theme. Place is decked out with theme related decor. Food is usually quick and always delicious. They get pretty busy during lunch so I recommend getting there a little early.

First time here. Had a very large Chicken Caesar Salad. It was tasty, cold and served in a timely manner. The place was clean and the people bussing the tables were quick and courteous.

Portillo's is like two restaurants in one. One side has sandwiches and the other pasta and salads. We had the grandkids and got hot dogs, Italian sausage, and a hamburger in the sandwich side with French fries, cokes, and milkshakes. We also got a chop salad and cheesy French fries. The garbage salad is very good too. Everything had good... More

Fun restaurant with decent prices. Good variety: half hot dog stand and half Italian food. Staff was pleasant. We definitely enjoyed this meal!

If you cannot get to Superdawg, this is ok for a Chicago Hot Dog, almost technically correct. The fries are not as good as the Superdawg fries, but if you need a Chicago Dog fix, this is the place.
