When I travel to Chicago first place I go is Portillo's for a hot beef sandwich with peppers on it. If your a salad person, they have the best. Great hot dogs with all the trimmings. Lots of good choices. They also cater.

I did drive through mid afternoon on a Wednesday - at least 8 cars on line, but still fairly quick and efficient. Sandwich and fries (crinkle cut an crunchy) so good I finished every bite. Excellent fast food.
