We go here every time we visit our family in Chicago, we love their beef sandwiches. When in Chicago you got to have the Italian Beef sandwiches. If you enjoy a beer with your meal you can get one here. Try the chocolate cake. Who knew?

Poor Portillos - just not the same since it's been sold. We had really hard and old tamales. The chicken on the salads are rubbery. Even the grilled chicken sandwich has rubbery chicken. Beef is good but sparce. Hot dog itself is good but the bun was over steamed.

Mention Portillo's to anyone and the initial response - Italian Beef sandwich. Second response - chocolate cake. It's worth visiting just to see such an amazing operation. Food is delicious at extremely reasonable prices. A menu for all tastes.

Portillo's seem to be popping up around the Midwest and for good reason. Good food, clean restaurant, diverse menu, affordable pricing and a fun atmosphere. The family has been going to this Dundee Rd. Portillo's for a bunch of years and never disappointed. They have the usual efficient drive-thru if you are in a hurry but...take a little time and...

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!!
