Portillo's is the quintessential Chicago Experience Must for Chicago style hotdogs, Italian beef, babyback ribs...and their famous chocolate cake or chocolate cake shake! I entertain a lot of out of town guests and this (and Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza!) is always a highlight. But...More

Fabulous Chopped Salad! Took to go because place was so very busy. We went back next day because my husband wanted a beef sandwich, but it the line was out the door. We'll be back the next time we're in Chicago.

Grew up on this food, and after 10 years of not having it around, TOTALLY worth going back to. Same good food. Love the cheddar beef croissant, chocolate malt, and onion rings. Be sure to have time to wait, but well worth the wait!

What to say? Portillo's is an resteraunt that serves Chicago-style Italian beef and hotdogs with other offerings including salads, fountain drinks and a chocolate cake worth the trip by itself. Must go if you're visiting Chicago and the collar counties.

The family was meeting here before doing some charity work. Everyone got to order what they wanted and still be seated together.
