Portillos in Northern IL

You can't beat this place for Chicago hotdogs, Hamburgers, Pasta and Chocolate Cake. They are very friendly, fast, clean and the best. They have a Vodka Rigatoni that can't be beat. I have tried it in some of the best Italian restaurants and never as good as Portillos. Great Chicago Hot Dogs... read more

Crazy busy Saturday afternoon. Lines everywhere. Needs a bit of organization, but the food was great. Had pasta, salad, burgers, hotdogs, fries, onion rings and cakes.

Portillo's on Golf in Schaumburg is one of the mainstays of the area. Their Italian beef is outstanding and I love their breaded chicken sandwich. Despite the crowds every time we visit, the place is always clean and friendly!

Portillo's is a local franchise which is spreading into other states, now. They are great for cheap eats, and a great meal. If you're from out of town and you are the only one in your party who craves a Chicago-style hot dog, it's a great choice. Get the Jumbo Dog. They are more than hot dogs and burgers, though....

This place was recommended to me last spring when I visited Chicago. I tried the Italian beef sandwich and the chocolate cake - great recommendations and couldn't wait to get back there this trip to the area. The Italian beef wasn't quite as amazing as I remember - but still VERY good. The cake was excellent. In fact, my travel... More

We go to this chain every chance we get. Our favorite are the Italian Beef sandwiches. These also come in two sizes, big and bigger. The chain is also known for their Chicago style hot dogs although we always stick with the beef sandwiches.

A must visit during every trip to the Chicagoland area! Best hot dogs and fries. Fun, casual atmosphere.

Many times we've been in this place and we always come out happy. They have many many choices and most of them are pretty good eats. Just like the Cajun style chicken pita or our favorite, maxwell style polish, or just plain cheeseburger, to name a few. Oh yeah, the chocolate cake was excellent.

The food is great, my favorite is the Italian beef, with mozzarella cheese, extra, extra dipped, yummy. Make sure you have time because most of the time is is busy but they move fairly quickly. Nice place and the staff is nice as well.

Biggest and delicious chocolate malt for the $ I have had in a very long time. The dogs are classic but the temperature was only luke warm. Would love them hotter.
