“Neat place”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This fast food place is a step above the rest. They can make a plain ol' hotdog taste great! My kids said that their hamburgers were really good too. The place was clean.

“First time visiting Portillo's”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Loved the fish sandwich and onion rings! The service was nice as well. I'd heard awesome reviews about the beef and cheddar sandwiches, but I don't eat beef or pork so fish it was!

“Love the Italian Beef”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Great, cheap meals. The dipped Itlaian Beed sandwich is fabulous as well as the hot dogs. I visited several times on my last trip and will go bak again.

“Best "fast food" ever”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Granted, I didn't have a hot dog, but I did have the best chicken sandwich ever. Also, the fries are perfection. The chicken was crispy (fried), juicy and tasty. The bun and fixing (bacon, lettuce, etc.) were perfectly prepared.

It looked like a chicken sandwich from a commercial! How often can you say THAT?!

“Incredible following for a hot dog and beef restaurant!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you are trying to find the best of Chicago in terms of restaurants, put local to Schaumburg Portillo's and Lou Malnatis on the list. Always a long wait for a reason, Finish it off at Wildfire and you dont even need to leave the neighborhood.
