This is what fast food is all about...No long lines to get good food. Service is always on the positive side. Menu is Quick and Easy to go thru. Forget ALL the "slow" food stops and search out the FAST food favorite

We got to Chicago and asked the doorman at our hotel where to get a good Chicago hotdog. He recommended Portillo's. We walked there and it was very busy at 3 pm on a Tuesday afternoon! We took that as a good sign:) The hotdogs had a nice crisp bite to them and the bun was soft and delicious. They... More

It took us awhile to figure out where and how to order. Wonderful hotdog, alot of stuff on it. A great price! Very busy. We seemed to go there at a good time. A Chicago hotdog is a must and this is the place to go. The only place a few Chicago people recommended to go. So glad we did.

I was interested in Portillo's (pronounced Port-ill-oh's) when I received a Christmas gift of frozen beef and buns shipped to me from this place. Tons of seating, lots of neon nights, things to see, and a staff that recites your order number in a rhyme ("24, wait no more!"), make this a fun place to visit for business, family and... More

This place is known for their hotdogs and rightly so. Make sure to get the Maxwell Polish hotdog with grilled onions. The milkshake was just perfect, not too sweet, not too heavy and just the right consistency. There's a wide selection of pastas and sandwiches too. The decor is really cool, worth a trip for lunch.

We went in for the pasta and I wanted a hot dog. The food was amazing, large portions and very well seasoned. The only problem was I had to go through libre twice because I was ordering noodles and the hot dog is a different line. Then you had to try and hear your number being called during the mad... More
