“The best Italian Beef sandwich on the planet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

I've had their hot dogs, hamburgers, Italian sausage, ribs, factory-made tamales, their shakes, chocolate cake-- most everything on the menu. But the Italian Beef is the BEST. It is so tasty my mouth is watering right now just thinking about it. Be careful though if you order the giardinera peppers-- they are HOT!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Portillo's Hot Dogs in Tinley Park is always busy, but they have plenty of help even in the drive thru. They have the best beef sandwiches on croissants and the fries and delicious too. Their salads are fantastic. The poppy seed dressing on the strawberry salad is really great, love the pineapples, strawberries and mandarin oranges. Their chopped salad is great too. If you order minus an item, they always get it right. Inside is very clean too. My only down is if they would let you get the salad minus the chicken $1 cheaper like Pot Belly's across the street. Maybe next time I go, it will be on the menu. I try to eat as little calories as possible and if I want a salad, that is all I want no chicken or meat. I usually have them serve it separate and then make another meal out of it for dinner in a casserole of some sort. They are really the best. They have high quality food.

I have been eating at Portillo's since it was a tiny trailer in the 60's. Great Chicago style hot dogs, good italian beef and great salads. Fun place...always a hit with family that visits us.
