Excellent food! Great service at the counter! Condiments were a little hard to find for this newcomer as were the napkins. Definitely would eat here again!

One can’t go wrong with Portillo’s. This experience was perfect. The order was quick and efficient, the food hot and delish! Love that they open @ 10:30 am as it makes it easy to grab ahead of time and before the crazy lines!

Great place to grab a bite. I suggest either the Italian beef or the Chicago style hotdog. Eat in or drive thru fast and delicious.
