I had to try a Chicago hot dog when I was in Schaumberg. I found Portillo's and saw that the parking lot was full on a Saturday at lunch - good sign. Not having much time for lunch, I opted for the drive thru. That was also busy, but they had runners taking orders. I had the Chicago dog with... More

I miss Portillos... My two main hits include the jumbo hot dog and the Italian beef sandwich. Salads are actually pretty good too and the chocolate cake shake can become your Achilles heel.

Fun place with a great atmosphere. Not being a condiment person, I get my dogs with ketchup only, but I ended up paying the price for a "fully loaded" hot dog. Wish there was an option not to, because it's otherwise a fairly plain hot dog you could get anywhere (though it was hot and the buns were fresh, just... More

Tough to choose what to eat here. Everything we had was outstanding. Fast, reasonably priced and delicious. Fun atmosphere. Best Chicago dogs! Maxwell street polish dog too. Fries good, onion rings good. Next time would try and Chicago beef. YUMMY chocolate cake shake. Beer too. Don't miss!

First time ever going here. We all know that the first time being in a place with a different setup than a normal restaurant can be a challenge trying to figure it out. We were figuring out what we would like and had question about the Italian beef. My wife asked for au jus on the side and the cashier... More

Used to live in Chicago and whenever we visit family, this is a must-stop. It is ALWAYS awesome. Let's see, they have THE BEST Chicago dogs here (with pickles and sesame seed buns), THE BEST cheeseburgers, my hubby claims THE BEST combo sandwiches (sausage and meatballs), and drumroll here . . . THE VERY, VERY BEST french fries in the... More

We recently ate at Portillo's and absolutely loved our experience. The food is good, the service is fast, and the fun atmosphere can't be beat! The hot dogs are amazing, as are the grilled hamburgers, and good old fashioned fries! We will definitely be back!

The atmosphere is great. This place is definitely a hot spot and can't beat the price. Everyone had a Chicago dog except for me. I had the grilled tuna sandwich and it was delicious. It was a generous size tuna steak and I ended up taking half of it home in doggy bag. They also have a chocolate cake shake... More

We love heading to Portillo's when we're back in the Chicago area. It's as much a tradition (for a lot of people) as it is about the quality of food. The food is above average fast food...and it's consistent. That's why it's great. You don't get squished burger...or a lukewarm hot dog...or cold, soggy fries. It's always fresh, and it's... More
