SO when in Chicago I have to stop in to Portillo's for an Italian Beef! They have the best in town. The Dogs are great, however the Beef sandwich is a MUST.

We live right by the Schaumburg Portillo's and eat there (dine in or carry out) very frequently. Don't ever be concerned over long lines in the drive thru or inside the restaurant. They have an amazing way of getting orders out quickly. They serve true Chicago style hot dogs. The best ingredients. I love their pickles! Be willing to try their burgers and beef sandwiches. Also fantastic. This Portillo's has a Barnelli's Pasta Bowl inside it as well. There ribs are to die for! Great sauce and fall off the bone meat. Nothing better than chowing down on true Chicago style food and listening to the great selections of oldies that they play inside and outside the restaurant. Portillo's is as great as it's reputation.

The hot dogs are fantastic and you can't go wrong with the burgers or beef. It is somewhere that says 'home' to many of us who are now out of the area and I can hardly wait to get back. Even the fries are wonderful! I am consistently surprised at how fast the counter workers get the food through the line--Portillo's employees go the distance.

There are three foods one MUST sample when visiting the Chicago area. The first is deep dish pizza, and Portillo's isn't much help in that category, and the pizza available there is pretty unimpressive. However, if you want a Chicago style hot dog or an Italian Beef sandwich then this is the place to go. Eating at Portillos is a time honored tradition and there is no better fast food place in the area. There is a drive through if you are in a hurry, and plenty of inside seating so you can enjoy the ecclectic atmosphere. This place is always busy but the line moves fast. If you are looking for something a little healthier, then there are wonderful salad selections, with the Chopped Salad being the most popular.
