Great place to pick a quick meal. Good choice of fast food and efficient service in a kind of indoor courtyard setting. Quirky but in a good way.

Here is a great family foods restaurant with a pleasant environment and exceptional food located in the heart of downtown Chicago. We enjoyed the food, surroundings, decor and courteous service. Thank you Portillos for "yummy" foods.

Heard such great things about this place so had to give it a shot. I had a chili cheese dog and my husband had the Italian beef sandwich. My hot dog was like any other. Nothing special or noteworthy. My husband's sandwich was horrible. It was a wet ball of unflavored mush. He had it with cheese and sweet peppers... More

Doesn't matter how good the food or atmosphere is. If I have to worry about their security kicking my butt for trying to finish my meal I won't be going here. Especially when they become part of the cover up!

If you find one during lunch time a good salad is great option. But if you want a good burger for dinner ask for a doble burger with chess fries. The best on Chicago, it is fast, good and not too expensive. If you still have room for dessert the chocolate cake is delicious. A great place to take your... More

You really can't say you've been to Chicago if you haven't been to Portillo's. They serve classic Chicago food (Chicago dogs, Italian beef, etc) and their chocolate cake shakes area supremely delicious. Seriously just go and eat here already.

I love Portillo's! I live close to one and I go there a lot. My favorite thing to get there is a Chicago style hot dog because once you have a Chicago style dog you never go back. I can't say it enough Portillo's is the best!

We were wanting a Chicago dog and looked online. This was a great spot for our group of 9 to head to for dinner. The atmosphere was fun, the food was delicious and the prices were good. It was easy to find parking nearby- which was a plus.

Portillos is one of the most beloved place in Chicago. For many reasons really, the burgers, beef, cake shakes- they are the best! It's a great place for familes, family events, and casual dining with lots of space. This is a permanent Chicago establishment and a must-go for people that visit!
