We've never had a bad meal here, but you certainly pay $ for it. Prices are higher than the surrounding area for comparable items. Loud music and lots of noise in seating area, hard to hold a conversation. Employees always courteous. Drive-up line usually circles the building.

We really enjoy going here. Hard to pass up the beef sandwich. Ask for it dipped (they take the whole sandwich and dip in in the juice before wrapping it) for an extra juicy sandwich. Hot dogs are good to and they have a really good ceasar salad. The decor is kitschy and fun and service is speedy.

Portillo's was a great way to experience Chicago Beef and Hot Dogs outside of the city. We were worried that the long line was going to prevent us from eating within our time constraints... but the staff moved everyone through faster than we could believe.

The food was great and the variety allowed everyone to find something they liked. The only complaint is that the cleaning staff was constantly slopping the wet rag on tables around us to clean up seating... admirable, but they should watch where the debris is flying.
