Being a Chicago native who has moved afar Italian Beefs and Chicago hotdogs are always a must when I'm in town. Portillo's is always excellent. Their mail order is always good too but nothing beats fresh at the restaurant!!

Very broad fast food menu. quality of food is excellent. Service is great considering the volume of traffic the store generates. Beer and wine is available though not outstanding choices. Great for families and people looking for a good and quick meal at a reasonable price.

Thank Jrsmith1154
