This is the place to go in order to be able to tell the people back home you at a real deal Chicago hot dog. Well, OK, Wrigley Field is probably better, but this is a darn fine option. Stepping in you're in a kind of food court with a strange diorama of Jazz Age Chicago mounted above. Broads and... More

Busy place, a bit "touristy" overall a must stop on any visit to Chicago. Food is authentic and delicious. Very casual environment. Order and pick up windows, grab a seat and chow down.

Whether its the Chicago favorite "Italian Beef" sandwich ("dipped sweet" for you touists), a burger, or the dogs that made Portillo's famous, you cannot have a bad meal. This location is in a very tourist-friendly area and gets very busy/crowded on weekends.

The Italian Beef was delicious, tamale and fries very good. Halibut was cooked a little longer than I like but still good I would prefer grilled but priced right and we enjoyed

Found Portillo's by some friends' suggestions. They did not steer wrong! Definitely have the beef sandwich if you go and get it with the medium amount of gravy. So so good!

This place screams "classic." The hot dogs are cooked the way they always have been and the toppings are traditional without being boring. Honestly, order anything and you will not be disappointed. The whole place is decked out with old Chicago pictures and old signs, which makes it feel like you stepped back in time. The staff was nice and... More

Best Chicago hotdog you will ever eat. I always get a hotdog, fries, and a hot beef sandwich. Save room for the chocolate cake. The chopped salad is also a favorite. If you are busy and don't have time to go in, just use the drive through. The drive through is so busy its double lane and they have workers... More

Greatest hot dogs in Chicago. Fries, chili, and hot chocolate are also pretty good. The strawberry shortcake for dessert was delicious.
