Always busy but the food is good, hamburgers are the best around. Inside is nice like an old time bootleggers warehouse.

The Beef & Cheddar croissant is very good but the menu is overpriced and there are no value meals, or combos offered.

I lived in the area for 25 years until I moved 7 years ago. I have always contended that Portillo's have the world's best ribs and I have never found any better. Unfortunately the ribs weren't good. I know my memory was accurate--just unlucky timing.

Busy location with large parking area and spacious seating area. Portillo's legendary for fast service. As an old-time systems guy, great treat to see their operation firing on all cylinders again. From order taking, calling the orders, assembling and delivering to customers, not a wasted motion. Food always top-notch, too. We had a Chicago dog (wife's eyes light up) and... More

Celebrating victory of COD win, my nephew recommended Portillo's. Dogs, burgers, fires and salads made to order. There were alll good. Environment fun, gingham table cloths, orders taken on the back of takeout bag, car suspended from the ceiling. Great place of families and friends to have a quick bite and hangout.

Portillo's is not only famous for its beef but Chicago hot dogs. Everything in this place tastes great and you won't find another place as good in Chicago! The chopped salad is very good if your not feeling like a beef, hot dog or burger. I've not had one better anywhere else. Then for desert you've got to try the... More

We ate here over the weekend for lunch. Great menu selection. Busy time of day and still received our food quickly. The food was very good. We will definitely come back!

We had heard that Portillo's had the best burgers and fries in town. This is not an understatement. It was incredible. I had the Italian Beef sandwich that was so big I could only eat half of it. The rest of it heated up nicely the next day. The service was quick and friendly. Next time we're in Chicago, we... More

Eat there every time I visit this area. All the food is excellent. You must try something different each time you visit. Would love to see this place of business be located somewhere around the Mishawaka Indiana area.

There were 11 of us at lunch time and the only difficulty we had was finding a table large enough to seat all of us. The food is good as always. I of course get a salad. It was the poppyseed fruit and chicken this time. For those that are gluten free this one is safe. Just do not eat... More
