We have been to a Portillo's many times, have never been disappointed. Staff was helpful, and nice. Food was hot and fresh when we received it, was a short wait, but well worth it. Chili cheese dog was great, fries as well, husband had the double cheeseburger, was a large sandwich, we also had an order of onion rings, also... More

Portillo's has the best italian beef sandwiches. The biggie is a handful but worth it. You can order it as juicy as you want or dipped. Great. Also Cobb salad is fantastic. Burgers are great. If you like chocolate cake you will love Portillo's. Service is fast and everything is fresh.

We've never been disappointed in their food. The hot dogs are perfect, burgers are a favorite for my son, and the cheese fries are a big hit for everyone.

We go here every time we visit our family in Chicago, we love their beef sandwiches. When in Chicago you got to have the Italian Beef sandwiches. If you enjoy a beer with your meal you can get one here. Try the chocolate cake. Who knew?

Poor Portillos - just not the same since it's been sold. We had really hard and old tamales. The chicken on the salads are rubbery. Even the grilled chicken sandwich has rubbery chicken. Beef is good but sparce. Hot dog itself is good but the bun was over steamed.
