Whatever you order you can't go wrong at Portillos! Hands down it's the best fast food restaurant! They have the best dogs burgers beef sandwich fries onion rings and chocolate malts. If you go to one that has a Barnelli's try their BBQ ribs and...More

For a Chicago-based restaurant chain that opened its first drive-through in 1983 and its signature location in downtown Chicago in 1994, Portillo's has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. Today, there are 38 locations in Illinois and others in Florida,...More

Colleagues brought me here as it would be the best fast food I'd ever had. The atmosphere was pretty OK, but the food just wasn't. I guess it's not that it wasn't prepared right - I'm just not into this. I had a Italian beef...More

As with most Portillo's the food is great! The service is pretty fast, but this does depend on the time of day you go also. During lunch and dinner rush, be prepared to wait a bit. Family friendly and the seating is adequate.

Always good for a fast bite! But not to fast if you go thru drive thru. They are very organized. Even though that is true orders don't always come out right😟food is much better than most fast food restaurants.

This place has gone down the tubes since the Portillo family sold out. This location is exceptionally bad. The wait times are so long. Plan on at least 20 minutes to get through the drive though. And check your orders. Almost every order has a...More

I love the beef and sausage combo. My wife loves the chopped salad. For desert you must try the chocolate cake. Our entire family finds an item to enjoy there.
