The food was outstanding! This restaurant is crazy, but the service is fast and the people are wonderful! When we first arrived, I was a little concerned because their giant parking lot was packed to the gills. But you get inside and there were plenty of tables available. Their drive through is three cars wide, but they get through them... More

This is the place to go, if you have a taste for a great burger, beef sandwich, jumbo Chicago style hot dog or just some good fries. Everything is good here. The problem is deciding what to order. Decisions, decisions....

The beef sandwiches are great. The beef and cheddar couissant with hot peppers is the best. I will be visiting in Tampa this week just to see if it has the same flavor as home.

Nothing more needed to say... Just always fantastic!! I personally enjoy their grilled chicken sandwich and onion rings but they are known for their hot dogs and Italian beef!

First time so we were unaware of the process to order, wait to get your food, find a seat, eat, then leave - organized chaos until you've done it once. We ordered a poppy seed chicken salad, hot dog (fully dressed, their signature beef sandwich, fries, onion rings. The chicken salad was very good, fresh veggies and tasty chicken. The... More

For 40 years I lived in the Chicago area and LOVED going to Portillo's. In Naperville we had one within a few miles and visited at least once a week. My brother-in-law would drive all the way from Springfield just to eat there. WHY? Their Italian Beef on a crusant with sweet pepper is to die for. Hot dogs, delicious.... More

We eat at Portillos approximately once a week. Their Italian Beef sandwiches are fantastic. Tender juicy beef seasoned perfectly...not to spicy but not dull. Add the sweet or hot peppers and order it dipped (like mine extra juicy so I get it double dipped). Hotdogs are good Vienna beef and are plump and juicy. Get them with the works. For... More

love this place & visit as many times as allowed by she who must be obeyed each time we visit Chicago. avoid the noon rush by arriving at about 1300. i love the Chicago stye dog w/ hot peppers but even better is the beef sandwich. I usually have both & leave a harpy man.
