Great hot dogs, chili dogs with cheese. Sauce has chili beans in it. Chicago style dogs, of course. More of a fast food restaurant, but large seating area. Other food, hamburgers, French fries, salads, etc. Order food at the counter, pay, and take back to...More

This is my favorite fast food go-to place for salads, burgers, grilled tuna or chicken sandwiches, and hot dogs. Serve beer and soft drinks. Best FF fries in town. Worth a visit.

Every time I come to Chicagoland I have to eat at Portillos. The ribs are the best ever and oh that chocolate cake! I wish they had one of these in Buffalo where I live.

It's part of a chain but has great Italian beef sandwiches. Also has a pasta line. You order at the counter.

For years I ate at other Italian Beef places in the Chicago area. Then I tried the Italian Beef at Portillo's. I won't go anywhere else now. I order mine dry with hot peppers and my wife orders hers with extra gravy and mozzarella. Both...More
