Awesome hotdogs and unreal Italian beef. Like melt in your mouth unreal. You can tell the food is good quality because I wasn't dying of thirst afterwards from all the sodium in the meat. Cheap prices, and cool Chicago artifacts on the walls.

This was our first family visit to Chicago and we just had to go to Portillo's. My son and I had the Chicago classic hot dogs and were not disappointed; we also split a Maxwell style Polish dog which was also delicious. Great atmosphere - watching and listening to the counter help was entertainment in itself. They even sell beer which for me was a bonus. We are already planning our next trip back.

This place is actually a food court with several small restaurants inside. They serve the best burgers and hot dogs in River North. The prices are reasonable and you can eat-in or take it out. The service is quick and efficient. Definitely a place to go for good, home-made fast food.

This place is amazing. I was skeptical about trying a hot dog with so much on it, but it was everything I was expecting and then some. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the prices are SO cheap! Beer and wine also sold there and cheap too. The atmosphere is really neat too. We tried a hot dog at another place and it did not compare to this place.

This is a fun, inexpensive restaurant. It is a casual restaurant, where you order your food and then pick it up at a different counter. Seating is fairly plentiful, as we never had to wait for a table, but the restaurant is always busy. We loved the hotdogs, but the fish is also really good, and the beef sandwiches are very famous. We went there twice in 3 days!
