Their food is great and they are very accomodating with specific orders (picky eaters) but how you order your food at the one location yet pick it up at two other locations is confusing

Portillo's is all around Chicagoland and has the best Italian Beef and Best combo (beef & sausage) anywhere I have traveled! I order mine with cheddar cheese and dipped which means you need 4 napkins to eat this sandwich. The fries and onion rings are also outstanding and the service is very fast. The only con... and this goes for many restaurants these days, it is very noisy so if you are looking for a place to do business or have a quiet relaxing meal... not gonna happen, but the food is world class!

Great chili dogs, chicago dogs, polish sausages, and other treats from a long past era. Brought back memories of my youth, although I didn't grow up in the Chicago area. Good food, good service, good prices

I had a chili cheese dog and fries. It was a great value for the money I paid and tasted great. I also got a chocolate cake shake which was really good.. We went right around 12 and barely beat the lunch crowd but they still got everyone through fairly quick. Try this place out you won't be sorry!

Moved away from Illinois 5 years ago and a Portillo's italian beef with hot peppers you cannot find anywhere else or even begin to replicate it. I just left Illinois and my mouth is watering just thinking about that wonderfully stuffed roll with loads of beef, jus and hot peppers.....oh if only Illinois was not almost 1000 miles away. Thank you Portillos for the wonderful sandwich that I have been eating since the early 90's. Besides good Chicago Mexican food, there is nothing that I crave more while away. Keep up the good work
