We went here for the Italian Beef sandwich and it didn't disappoint. Fries were good also. Neat interior and friendly staff.

Took the family for lunch prior to heading back home. I had the Crossaint Chedder Beef Sandwich. It was excellent. My son and wife had the chili cheese dogs and said they were very good. My daughter and other son had the italian beef sandwiches and said they were great. You can't go here and not get the Chocolate Cake... More

I love a good Italian beef sandwich, so I always look out for places that serve it in Chicago and I can truly say it's one of the best I've ever had.

The BEST beef and sausages in Chicago! Get the combo, juicy with garinare (hot peppers)! The hot dogs are also fantastic! Don't forget to get a scooner of beer to wash it down!

Great food and very family friendly with pretty moderate pricing. The only drawback is sometimes dirty tables, but food is delicious

Food was delicious!!! Will totally eat here again! The atmosphere was nice, laid back. You walk up to order your food, then your number is called when ready. Lots of food to choose from!

I have tried several Italian beef sandwich places in Chicago. I know it's a regional thing here and I try to take in regional specials when I can. The truth is I just did not find the sandwich that great. To be fair that comment is a general comment not one particular to here. In fact I enjoyed Portillo's more... More

We were traveling from Eastern Time Zone so it was nice that they open early so we could eat before going out sightseeing. We had hot dogs, chili dogs and Italian Beef sandwich (dipped!!). It was a quick meal but filled us all up. Great indoor location, too. Got us out of the cold with a cute environment.

Love Portillo's. We go there at least once a month. Very clean with a hard working happy staff. You really feel like they want you to have a good experience. Love the food. They have a wide range of menu for most any favorite you may desire.

Thank PauloJ5_148
