I love coming to portillos for two reasons. Their Italian beef and chocolate cake. Their chocolate cake is a must try if you haven't!

This is a local chain. Food was good, crowd was large. I'd personally rather go to a smaller single location dive for the authenticity. In Chicago, there are many.

Where can you get a loaded fresh dog for 2.99$? Excellent,hot and delicious. Can't eat just one. Quick to order and deliver. Try the shakes...you won't be disappointed. Recommended by our tour guide thank you!

If you are looking for a wonderful Chicago experience and some great local cuisine then Portillo's is the place. Having been born and raised in Chicago I have sampled Beefs and Chicago Hot Dogs throughout the Windy City. Whenever I return home to Chicago I make it a special point to go to Portillos. The interior decor tells not only... More

Love the Chicago hot dogs. Cool inside atmosphere. The Italian beef is not to my taste but I'm just not a fan of Italian beef. The cake shake was incredible but super rich and filling. We ordered a large and couldn't finish it between the two of us. We'll be back!

I have heard of this place many times over the years. Finally when on a trip to Chicago and let me say, BEST hot dog EVER. I have had many hot dogs across the country and this place is the best! This is a must stop for any trip!

If you are visiting Chicago please try here! Chicago style hot dogs are definitely a must try!.. beefs are fantastic! And the cheeseburgers are amazing. Decor and the jazz dance music gives it a fun touch while you eat and hang out with family! The workers there work very hard and fast. .. you won't be disappointed!

Every city has a vibe or feel to it. The original Portillo's made you feel like you were right by the ball park and in a an old neighborhood with the whole gang. The new owners have some of the vibe but as with any corporate take over it appears they are listening to consultants rather than experiencing the place... More
