“Great Italian beef sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a great place for Italian food. We had the Italian beef hot sandwiches and they were delicious. But there is far more great food at this restaurant. The ambiance is very attractive and the prices are very reasonable. There is also a banquet area for group activities. They also have a beer and wine bar, a large Italian salad bar and catering area to order food to go. And on top of a good meal you can go shopping at the fantastic Winco supermarket at the end of the parking lot after having a delicious tasting lunch!

“A great taste from back home in Chicago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I actually worked at a Portillo's in Chicagoland when I was 16 and it was fun to have this location within walking distance of the hotel I was staying at. The place is basically the same as the ones in Chicago and the food is great!

We had a honeymoon send off lunch here and they had a great selection of not only hotdogs but sandwiches, hamburgers and salads.

“ChicagoStyle in Calif.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

From looking at their pictures and story when you enter the restaurant, it is apparent that Portillo's started in Chicago and made a name for itself. Surprisingly they chose Riverside as their Southern Cal. spot, and from the consistent crowds there I guess they chose the right spot. Their hot dogs are good but nothing exceptional. However, I did really enjoy the Italian Beef Sandwich with jalapenos. It has a really good flavor, the rolls they use really accentuates the meat and sops up the juice. Wonderful They also serve beer, which is always a plus. Reasonably priced. Wife had a chicken salad which she loved.
