“Bustling restaurant, lots of decor, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Lots of decoration, perhaps a bit overdone. Food is decent, but average.

“Best Hotdog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Portillo's wins the best hot dog award in Chicago for us! We love them loaded, peppers and all. Honestly, all their food is really good. We like their salads and sandwich's and pasta and desert too. Must get a chocolate cake shake if you go there!

“Awesome Italian Beef, wet with peppers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

My wife and I ate at Portillo's in June 2012. We both ordered an Italian Beef, wet with peppers, we also shared some french fries. The food was great, just as we remembered it. Yummy Italian beef. French fries were great.
Service was quick, turnover in the dining area makes seating very easy.
