Born and raised in Chicago.....I have been eating Portillo's since birth. I have been ordering beef from them online for the past 15 years and having it shipped from Chicago to San Diego.
Now that they are in Cali I drive up weekly to the Moreno Valley location (180 miles r/t ) to eat here. That's how awesome this place is.............
If you've never had Portillo's Italian Beef.....you don't know what you're missing.
Get the BIG BEEF with hot peppers and make sure it's dipped.
Also if you like hot dogs...you will love Vienna. They kick butt on Nathan's, Hebrew National and any other beef hot dogs on earth.
I will not eat a hot dog unless it is made by Vienna.
Every time I eat here it brings me back to my childhood in Chicago.
