“Good Moderately priced made from scratch food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

+++ Phone ahead and still you can pick up at the drive through, consistency from place to place. My advise when it comes to rush hours at lunch and dinner, get a "fresh soda" they will draw 20 ahead of time and who wants a dead Coke. If it sat for 2 minutes OK but 5 or more...

“Bring back Chicago real hotdogs.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

When we lived downtown and Portillo.s opened we did stop to try a dog. We'll, not only Portillo's but the rest of Chicago's hot dog stands are not the likes of what I experienced as a young Chicago hotdog lover. Lousy buns and salty flavorless hot dogs. They are the same in grocery stores. Yet a few butcher shops make super homemade hotdogs with skins.

“great hot dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Everything is good. The prices are right and they have a huge menu. You can eat healthy or have a heart attack on a bun--your choice.
