Food is amazing. I don't know of many places that have equally tasty "junk" food and salads. My peer ate a Chicago dog and it looked amazing. I went with the Poppyseed Chicken Salad. It was so yummy. Great lunch and friendly quick service during a really busy time.

Wanted to have Chicago Hot Dogs during our visit here. Had the classic hot dog and the chili dog with onion rings and fries. Nice snap on the hot dog, which from what we read, are made just for them. Fast service and guys writing down your order on paper bags...cool

Their chocolate cake and their chocolate shakes are so good you will just want more. Their hamburgers and fries are also very good. Every time I go to Portillo's I am never disappointed.

I had the pleasure of visiting Portillo's twice in a week on lunch from work and tried a variety of foods. The Maxwell Street Polish Sausage was so good, I can honestly say I'm a better person now in this world for having eaten it. On a second visit I got a Caesar salad as a side with my Chicago... More

This is not the largest of the chai but very busy at lunch and dinner. Drive through is efficient but much more made to order than those burger places so expect hot food and good taste for your slightly longer wait

Took our family to Portillo's. It is...in a word...amazing. We had a beef, a double cheeseburger, and two salads. I had the pecan salad and it was delicious. I subbed feta for shredded cheese and got the hot Dijon on the side. I would highly recommend it. Parking is a little tough. Grab a place wherever you can. Be ready... More
