Their hotdogs and beef sandwiches are fantastic. Service is fast and all the workers are friendly. The beef and sausage combo is delicious. I have never this restaurant feeling hungry. As it gets really busy, recommend visiting during off hours.

This is by far the BEST Beef sandwich you'll ever get in Illinois. We love Portillo's where everything is good. They do try to give fast service however,t its hard when so many people love their food. Always busy. The hamburger are juice and thick, Beef with pepperers is excellent and so are the salads,. You wont be sorry.

As a frequent traveler I've had the experience of tasting different foods from around the world. I've had my share of Chicago dogs but I'd definitely say that this place has a great tasting Chicago dog. They put in all the right ingredients, on top of that I ate one of their burgers with my meal which was not what... More

For a taste of Chicago this is the best place to enjoy an Italian sausage sliced beef with sweet peppers and grilled onions dipped. It is as good as you will ever find. They serve it fast, fresh and hot. The bread also makes the sandwich. I highly recommend hitting this place or any of their locations.

We tried this place based on recommendations from some natives of this area. it was late on a weekday night and it still pretty busy. Still, the staff had a good attitude and didn't seem bothered w/the rush of people coming in late right before closing. It was still quick service. The food was exactly how my local friends described.... More

Portillios has it all, great service and even better food. Don't be afraid when you see a long line in the drive-through. They got the stuff figured out. They staff enough people to take your order, your money and your food is ready by the time you make it to the window. Food is always fresh and hot. I've never... More

This was our first stop on our way back thru the area. The grilled tuna sandwich was good and my daughter liked her pasta. The hot dogs were a shadow of their former glory and the Italian beef were poor and lacking flavor.
