if you have not experienced Portillo's, you are missing out. the interior is always fun to look at with its gangster-era decor. it can get crowded and loud at times, but it is so worth it!

We stopped in yesterday to grab a quick carry-out lunch for the three of us: my wife, my son, and me. I got my usual hot dog and fries, and the dog was great. The fries were a little off yesterday, we all agreed--not quite as salty as usual, not fried up like they usually are, so we didn't finish... More

Visiting our Oswego family, we are always sure to come here for ribs. Honest. We have not found any more tender or succulent than here. And for those wishing fiber rather than fat, the salads are good, too.

1st time at Portillos and I had no idea what to get. Such a big menu and the place is packed but I truly had a wonderful experience and can not wait to return.

Portillo's offers more than just hot dogs. They have burgers, ribs, beef sandwiches, BBQ and the malts! Yum. Went for lunch and the place was packed. Finally found a table and the food showed up about 5 minutes later. I had the October special, bratwurst and kraut. Not their best effort, but ok. Chili dogs were great!

this is a fantastic place for authentic Chicago hot dogs and malts. I recommend the combo with sweet peppers and a chocolate malt Enjoy

Portillo's can always be counted on for great food, but the service is getting much slower since Dick Portillo sold the chain last year. I hope my last visit was just unusual, but waiting 20 minutes for our food when it was hardly busy was way too long, and much longer than in the past.
