The Italian beef was awesome. I want to go back to Chicago just for the Italian beef sandwich. It looks like a food so i was a little worried about the quality of the food. I was not disappointed at all.

Very busy local establishment close to many hotels a couple blocks off Michigan Avenue. The staff at the Fairfield Inn recommended Portillo's for local food at great prices. At first ordering is confusing because there are three different places to order but you can only order the items listed in that particular area. The Beef Barley soup was very good.... More

I dined here for dinner with a group of friends. Most of us ordered different meals but everyone was happy with their food. I ordered the grilled chicken panini and it was huge. The lines were short and our food was ready within 5 minutes after we placed our orders. I would eat here again.

We love the location on Dempster street in Park Ridge IL. Service is outstanding and food is always fresh and tasty. Price is reasonable and it's always busy. Local high school kids go there to hang out and have fun. Chocolate cake at the end is a must!, try it!

I have been to Chicago many, many times. For some reason, I have always chosen to try new deep dish pizza places instead of eating at Portillo's. I finally gave Portillo's a try yesterday and I was blown away! The Chicago dog and Italian beef sandwich I had were both incredibly delicious. Additionally, the atmosphere at this Portillo's location was... More

No trip to Chicago is complete without a stop at Portillo's. The lines were longer than I have experienced in the past and it was 2 pm in the afternoon. We still waited, because the Chicago style hotdog is worth the wait. I have had a variety of food at Portillo's and it is always good. The staff deal with... More

Took the family for lunch prior to heading back home. I had the Crossaint Chedder Beef Sandwich. It was excellent. My son and wife had the chili cheese dogs and said they were very good. My daughter and other son had the italian beef sandwiches and said they were great. You can't go here and not get the Chocolate Cake... More

I love a good Italian beef sandwich, so I always look out for places that serve it in Chicago and I can truly say it's one of the best I've ever had.
