For those who crave a Chicago dog or Italian Beef sandwich it is worth a trip to Buena Park or Moreno Valley to eat at Portillo's. It is similar to those in Chicago. Unlike the Chicago restaurants, they have salads. Try the chopped salad, it is delish! They also have bulk Italian beef to take home and make when you can't make it to Buena Park or Moreno Valley which is cheaper than a trip to Chicago.

We came here for the Italian beef with sweet peppers and extra juice and IT IS THE closest to Chicago you will find by FAR! And with all the italian photos and stories on the walls, it is just great! But, because I married a great HALF-Italian man, to my horror HE orders a hamburger! Are you kidding, I think?!?! Well, as you can tell, I tried it (and since he is also the human version of T-Rex, we have tasted hamburgers at pretty much EVERY place you can think about).....THIS was the BEST burger that you will see traveling over the flames as you wait!!!! In n Out always holds a special place but if I have a choice, it will be Portillo's - magnifico!

Our friends took us here for the first time last week (and I just found one closer to home!). I had a chili dog and it was quite scrumptious. They have decent hot dogs, decent fries, good hot dog buns. You really can't go wrong if you like a good hot dog.

Portillo.s in Buena Park has the best chicago hot do'g and Beef sandwiches this side of Chicago. They have other items such as their Chopped Salads, poppy seed fruit salad and many more. Inside you will see old relics of 1930 Chicago and picture of the likes of Al Capone and other Chicago famous people and places. A few blocks is famous Knott's berry Farm.
