My favorite thing on the menu - Big Beef (the large version of their Itallian Beef) + Hot Peppers + Extra Sauce on the side. I'd drive about 60 miles just to get this thing. There's something about the delicious flavorful juicy hot beef - the tangy/spicy mixed carrots/jalapenos peppers - and the warm flavorful dipping au jus that gets your mouth all watering when thinking about it. Don't forget to grab the strawberry shortcake for dessert. Great ambiance too!

Portillo's has the BEST Italian Beef, hot dogs, and hamburgers. They boast a fine chocolate cake, but we've only had it in the disgusting-sounding, yet superb Chocolate Cake Shake. Prices are reasonable and the portions generous.

Pros: Variety and quality of food

Cons: There are only two of these restaurants in So Cal

Portillo's is a really great hot dog joint in Buena Park. My favorite thing to get is the Maxwell Street Polish on french bread(trust me. you HAVE to get it on french bread. WAY BETTER) with extra grilled onions. It's really yummy. If you don't like mustard, this will make you like mustard. It did for me. The people that work there are all friendly. Stop by!

When this place opened up in the Buena Park Mall, it seemed like people couldn't get enough of it. There was always a long wait to get seated or even in the drive through. Now, it has slowed down a bit, but the food is still delicious and the service is always great.

I've never really been a huge hot dog fan but once I tried Portillo's that completely changed. Their hot dogs are definitely unique and definitely not average. They put so many toppings on these things that it's almost like eating a sandwich. The first bite will be just a burst of flavor in your mouth and you won't want to put it down. I would list the stuff they put on these things but I think you should go and find out for yourselves. Everything else on the menu is good too but the hot dogs are the main attraction in my eyes. Go check it out!

The best hot dogs around, the cheeseburgers are great, and don't get me started on the chocolate cake. I also love the roast beef combos and the Chicken Salad is not bad either. The service is great and the food is even better.

On my last visit to the city of Chicago, I sampled different Italian beef and combo sandwiches and all of them were great. When I found out that the Chicago based Portillo's had a restaurant in Buena Park, my buddies and I piled into my car and headed down the 5 freeway. The Portillo's in BP is as close as you will get to a real Chicago style Italian beef or combo sandwich. The place was packed and the food reminded me of Chicago. However, I don't know if it was the location or the city but the sandwiches didn't taste as memorable as the ones in Chicago. First timers, you have to go with either the Portillo's hot dog, the beef sandwich, or the beef combo sandwich.

Pros: Chicago Style beef sandwich and hot dogs

Cons: I have to drive far to eat here but I'll do it once in awhile

A real Chicago feel! Good hot dogs but not Great! Love the environment and atmostphere. Real casual. Spicy beef sandwich was good but not as spicy as the one in Chicago. I would come back to try other items on the menu. It looks and smell delicious. It's something different in the neighborhood.

Born and raised in the burbs of Chicago (like Villa Park, IL) where Portillo's got its start. Everything on their menu is a signature Portillo item. Of course the Hot Dogs with everything plus sport peppers. Never catsup unless your under 14 years old. The cheeseburgers with all the fresh toppings. Fries and Onion rings always special. Super thick milkshakes. But the 2 things I must have are the Chicago Style Italian Beef sandwich with sweet peppers and the Chocolate cake. Yes Mrs Portillo's triple chocolate recipe at a hot dog joint ! Now if they served "Browns" fried chicken I would live in the parking lot.

Pros: Childhood Memories, True Chicago Food

Cons: Only one outside of Chicago, No Browns fried chicken
