Grew up on this food, and after 10 years of not having it around, TOTALLY worth going back to. Same good food. Love the cheddar beef croissant, chocolate malt, and onion rings. Be sure to have time to wait, but well worth the wait!

What to say? Portillo's is an resteraunt that serves Chicago-style Italian beef and hotdogs with other offerings including salads, fountain drinks and a chocolate cake worth the trip by itself. Must go if you're visiting Chicago and the collar counties.

The family was meeting here before doing some charity work. Everyone got to order what they wanted and still be seated together.

Portillo's consistently good. Drive through is packed but that's pretty true on any Saturday. Hotdog today but my fav is the grilled burger with everything.

Great fast food. Sandwiches salads are excellent. Friendly staff. Chocolate cake shake earns its spot on food network- unique and tasty. Eaten here many times. Never a bad meal.

Been eating Portillo's for years. Decent lunch fare. Extensive variety. Burgers, beef sandwiches, combos, hot dogs... french fries are good. they have a salad section and desserts with a variety, also. They sell MGD and Miller Lite. While you can probably find some better, this is a good place to sample a Chicago Style beef or hot dog. I prefer... More

Portillos is a Chicago classic. You can get great Chicago dogs and Italian beef sandwiches there. They also have great burgers,fries,and shakes. Hard to go wrong there. They now have one in Southern California and in the Phoenix area as well and I always stop there when I'm in town.

Thank cgozzo
