My favorite Italian beef sandwiches! Also get the Maxwell street polish but ask for it on French bread! Some locations have pasta. Get the vodka cream sauce pasta! Yum! Can't go wrong here. Something for everyone! Don't forget the chocolate cake!

The Italian Beef Combo, Dipped is awsome! Well worth the wait! The Salad was the perfect accompaniment. Next time I will have to try the hot dog!

Apparently Portillos is a regional thing which I, as a local, had never realized before. If you're not from the area and have never experienced Portillos, I'll admit: it's generally worth the stop. The sandwiches are amazing. Their burgers are good. The chocolate cake? Yes....More

Impeccable service, great food, home made taste, family style atmosphere at a comparable price. Fresh bread and peppers make the sausage sandwiches second to none. A must stop if your in the area. 👍

Can't believe the service so quick for so many customers. They have it down to a science . Food is great. The garbage salad is really good. The beef is true Chicago style as are the hot dogs.

Busy and popular location in suburban Downers Grove. The drive through line was busy during lunch. When we went inside the line was a bit slow. Hot dogs were perfection. Worth the wait, if you have the time.

Hot dogs > great! Chili > excellent! Hamburger > average Malts > fantastic!!! We were in a hurry, and the food came up pretty fast. Not a lot of variety on the menu, but that is ok when you serve your showcase items well.

Portillos is so scrumptious. We just love it. The beef sandwiches and hot dogs are the best, but there is so much variety. The chicken croissant sandwich is delicious as well. For dessert, either have a piece of their famous chocolate cake or have a...More

I went in the middle of the afternoon and this place was packed. Food is ordered in a line and then you go stand and wait for your number to be called. They do have beer, but you have to buy it from a different...More
