Portillo's has made it's name on classic Chicago style dogs, sausages and italian beefs. They also make great shakes and salads. Don't expect a low cal or haute couture experience. My teens will choose this over almost any other restaurant.

Actually I believe they serve much more than hot dogs. Large menu.(hamburgers in different styles, bar-b-cue beef, chicken, fries, soups, desserts etc . Quick ordering and eating. Sort of self serve.
