This is the second time I've eaten at a Portillo's and I'll keep coming back! We arrived on a Saturday around lunchtime, and they already had a long line, but it moved quickly. You order your food from one line, and pick it up at the counter. Now, I will say that our order got pushed aside, and we ended... More

Good burgers and hot dogs. Excellent salads. Was still quite busy for lunch even at 2pm, but moved through the line quite quickly. The ladies' room needed attention, though.

When in the Chicago area, I always try to have one Italian Beef. Portillo's is the place to go. Even without the extras, the sandwich is great. Their salads are good too, though it does require a wait. Otherwise, service is quick and efficient.

Portillo's is one of those places that, if you visit Chicago, you have to go eat there. The service is unbelievably fast. Even their drive thru looks long but they move really fast, so don't let that scare you. I LOVE their chopped salad. Get extra dressing, it's like none you've ever had. Burgers are great, ribs and of course... More

Was anticipating a great chicago beef, was disappointed. The beef was rather tasteless, and the sweet peppers were so salty they had no other flavor. My bread was rather flat and stale as well. On a second visit, the italian sausage was very tasty, but the sweet peppers again were highly over salted.
