The quality of the food is terrific, and the service is exceptional. If you are looking for great fast food with a variety to choose from, you have to try Portillo's. You won't be disappointed.

Food was absolutely excellent. Had many things here to try and we did. Not a bad thing on the menu. Was suggested by a good friend as “it’s life changing”. Lol. Have to say it was !!!

We usually dine here or at one of their locations when we visit the Chicago area. Service is fast. Many customers use the drive through.
