Portillo's is in a comfortable food courtyard serving hot dogs and French fries. I though the Chicago Dog with everything on it would be one of a kind, but it was basically an everyday hot dog with peppers, onions, and tomato. While tasty, I will not remember Chicago for this ordinary lunch.

Decent dinner of Italian beef (dipped) and Chicago dogs. Food was very tasty......took a little while for food to come out, but was reasonably priced and very good. Did have Greek salad with chicken and that was just OK.....not their specialty.

This might be my husbands favorite stop of our trip. He says he could eat the Italian beef sandwich from here every day for the rest of his life. The sandwich was very good and it's a cool atmosphere.

The atmosphere draws you in and the food keeps you there. Don't be discouraged by the long lines. The service is remarkable and the food is authentic and reasonably-priced.

We were looking for dinner after 9pm and Portillos was a good choice. The Italian beef was really good but make sure you save room for dessert. The cake shake is like nothing we have ever had before. It was amazing.

Walked here for lunch while on class trip. Easy to find. Long line during lunch but service was pretty speedy. If new here, recommend getting a paper menu to help with decisions since they may send a person into the line to write down your order to speed things up at the counter. Be ready! Went with the famous Italian... More

Great service. Best Calamari ever. Get this sweet appetizer while waiting 35 min for Pizza. Get a large and save some for late night snack. The cheese is amazing. Fresh tomatoes purée on top. Oh so good.
