Portillos has the best chopped salad, and the size per serving can be saved for another meal. They have the best chocolate cake,I usually get 3 slices everytime i order and the staff told me I should get the whole cake for a reasonable price, from then I always get the whole cake. I love their Char dog one of... More

I love Portillo's but this location was horrible. The tables were dirty, the fake plants hung sideways from the ceiling, the condiment center was a mess with ketchup everywhere, and a worker was sitting outside next to the door taking a break. My family and I ordered hot dogs and fries. We waited about 20 minutes for our order. The... More

Very broad fast food menu. quality of food is excellent. Service is great considering the volume of traffic the store generates. Beer and wine is available though not outstanding choices. Great for families and people looking for a good and quick meal at a reasonable price.

We stopped in to get some desert to go. Both the Eclair Cake and the Cheesecake were great. The portions were the biggest but you really don't need anymore. my only complaint was that we waited a long time to get anyone to notice we were standing at the counter waiting for help.

Fast service. Easy to order. And great selection. The staff were very helpful to this Minnesota guy that was there for the first time. Don't forget to order a shake.

Portillo's is another "local favorite" that I was told I had to try while in Chicago. I ordered the Italian Beef sandwich with mozzarella and peppers. I would say the sandwich is along the lines of a Philly Cheese Steak, but with a Chicago/Italian flair about it. You can order with extra gravy (au jus in other parts of the... More
