We visit Portillo's every time we drive to Chicago. The food is consistently delicious. The cake shake is worth trying at least once, but you'll probably want to share it with someone as it is too large for just one person.

We frequently dine in, carry out or delivery. Our choices sometimes vary, but not much. My favorite is the chopped salad with no chicken & no bacon and always have soup, minestrone or sometimes broccoli & cheese. I've had hot dogs, hamburgers and pasta too. Great menu, great food.

Stopped in with new friends for a quick dinner. Wow! Bustling atmosphere, but still easy to converse. Choose a line - sandwiches or pasta - you won't be disappointed with either. The lasagna was delicious, fettuccine alfredo was delicious, and whatever you do, save room for a cake shake. Holy cow. So GOOD!

Portillo's ... many in Chicago rave about the restaurant. The drive-through line-ups are always long. The food: lots of its and made fresh and hot. The food was too greasy for my taste but this certainly comfort food.
