Ate here twice during vacation. The food is absolutely amazing! Everything we ate exceeded our expectations. Italian beef, Chicago dog and ribs were all so good. And the milk shakes were fabulous. I could eat here every day.

My American friends took me here for an evening meal. The place has the ambience of a 1950's diner. It's busy and noisy. Fast food style your order is taken at a counter and you are given a receipt with a number on it. We...More

As a Chicago transplant living in Southern California I was overjoyed when Portillo's opened in Buena Park. If you want a authentic Chicago Hot dog or Italian Beef this is the place to get them. They serve Vienna sausages, which anyone from Chicago will tell...More
