Fast service. Easy to order. And great selection. The staff were very helpful to this Minnesota guy that was there for the first time. Don't forget to order a shake.

Portillo's is another "local favorite" that I was told I had to try while in Chicago. I ordered the Italian Beef sandwich with mozzarella and peppers. I would say the sandwich is along the lines of a Philly Cheese Steak, but with a Chicago/Italian flair about it. You can order with extra gravy (au jus in other parts of the... More

We were coming back fro Mecum Auctions and saw the place was packed at 7:00 pm, including the drive through. My son said it had to be good so we went in. He had the beef and another sandwich and I had the double burger. The food was fast and Ohh so good! Order the beef - it is every... More

We stopped by for a late lunch on a Friday and were surprised to see how busy this place was. The drive thru had a line around the building. The menu is a little overwhelming at first but an older gentleman who has worked here for years took our order and guided us to the best things to eat. It's... More

A fan of Portillo's for many years, they continue to drive consistency and good food across all their stores. I have loved their chocolate cake, burgers, Italian beef and combo for years. My new favorite is the grilled chicken and cheese on a croissant. Outstanding! Definitely give one of these a try.

I'm a native Chicagoan...sort of, raised in NW Indiana, and LOVE Chcago dogs, polish & italian sausages, hot beef, etc. I live no where near Chicago now and I can't get the reeal thing. BUT, a weekend in Chicago and I found PORTILLOS. It is HEAVEN!

This was my first visit to Portillo's. Ever. We do not have them where I come from. Eating a hot-dog here compares to eating a burger in McDonald's. It is not bad but it is also not something I am looking forward to eating again. The chocolate cake made a better impression than a hot-dog, but still wasn't much more... More
