Portillo's anywhere is fantastic...best "fast food" anywhere in Chicago, but that's why it's so great b/c even though it's fast, it's quality fresh ingredients, and you can tell when you eat there. I love Portillo's!!!!

We like Portillos because of the variety of food they have. Everyone can eat at one spot and actually order something different, and eat.

I've had their jumbo hotdogs, chili dogs, hamburger, cheese fries, chicken diablo, Italian beef, chopped salad, baked spaghetti, chocolate cake, strawberry short cake, tiramisu, you name it, I've had it! It's all great food! Never had bad experience or bad food here! Simply the best place ever, and I hate hot dogs and burgers!

Tis is practically a fast food restaurant, except that the food is generally good and the menu is quite varied. The chopped Portillo's salad is tasty, light, but filling. Good for kids, including college kids.

I used to live in Chicago and just came back from a business trip there. Every time i go, I make a point of getting to Portillos for an Italian Beef sandwich - and every time I am reminded of the fact that they make the best Italian beef in Chicago! The hot peppers have just the right bit and the crusty roll is a perfect compliment to the tender beef. Always glad that I made the trip and always look forward to coming back.
