If you grew up in Chicago and enjoyed the food, this is the place to go. Chicago hot dogs and beef sandwiches.

I strongly recommend the Italian beef sandwich....doggone delicious. My friend is from Chicago and she swears this food is authentic. I eat there every time I'm in the LA area.

I'll say it: I love Portillo's. I hadn't been to this location before, but being from Chicago, I've been to probably 30 others. This one is the same, which is a compliment. The food is amazing. We came to pick up a catering order (4th of July party), and stayed for lunch. I usually get a chopped salad, but instead... More

Best place ever for Chicago style hot dogs and beef sandwiches… Closest you can get without flying to Chicago. We drive all the way from Redondo Beach just to get some. There isn't anything in particular that's good because it's ALL really good!!

The sandwich is light and not greasy. They have great hot dogs full of flavor. Every time we are in town we... More

Judging from its location (near Knott's Berry Farm) and from it's somewhat kitschy exterior, it would be easy to just categorize Portillo's in Buena Park as a greasy restaurant meant for tourist. In reality, though, Portillo's is a lot more! The menu is pretty much American classics (hot dogs, hamburgers, milk shakes), but done in the best way possible. My... More
