I don't get it. I do not like this place, their food, the lines, the prices. People are lined up around the corner. What have I not tried here?

Very good food went back the same day. People were very patient with explaining the menu. Place was very packed which means we weren't the only one who enjoyed the food.

Stopped for an Italian Beef sandwich with hot peppers on the side and extra gravy on the side. A feast for anyone's palette. I think the French fries are better than McDonald's fries. They have a wide variety menu. Great Chicago style hot dogs, Italian sausage and even a combo beef and sausage sandwich. For those looking for the "more... More

Except for having to stand in a group for your number to be called (they need to take a lesson from The Patio or Buona and have people take their number to their table), still an excellent treat for the family. Standing and waiting has run it's course and I have not visited as much as in past years. However,... More

Great sausages and salads. Beer and soft drinks available. A fun place to eat with a nation wide reputation. You will come back often to enjoy the quick and delicious food.

My sister (who lives in Willowbrook) told me that business was down at nearby restaurants because everyone was going to Portillo's. Well, we were there long enough that we had dined at many of the nearest restaurants (Patio's, Blueberry's, Baker's Square), so we decided to go find out what the hype was about. What we found was a cavernous restaurant... More

Good food, affordable price, conveniently located. Perhaps you not force reviewers to review anything but hotel.

Located in a mall parking lot. Atmosphere is very fun and quirky - great for hanging out with friends and family. Lots of midwest kitsch going on. The signature sandwich is Italian Beef, which is a seasoned beef thinly sliced. It's typically served with some peppers, and you can have it 3 ways - dry, extra gravy, or dipped. I... More

This place is like a greasy, grimy street stand, but in a nice, clean, large-scale restaurant format. I have to say that it is GREAT for a family outing... we had no trouble at all with a party of 5 adults and three kids. The hot dogs and beef/sausage combos are tasty, but don't QUITE get the Chicago street stand... More
