I love their food here. My family and I always enjoy our visits here. I recommend trying to come outside of normal lunch hours, otherwise there will be a long wait, but it is well worth it.

A good place to go for the typical chicago hot dog. Most of the other foods aren't high quality. The smoothies are gross. The cheese fries are cheap but I like them. Its just somewhere to go if you want fast food.

Still new to Chicago and locals and visitors raved about this place. I finally made it there for lunch during the week.... totally hit the spot. Ordering is intense, but amusing, the food was delicious. I got the Italian Beef...it was OVERFLOWING with meat..sopping in juice. It was delicious. Thumbs up!

Have eaten at 33 of the Portillos locations and this one is my favorite because of its location downtown. The food, service and ambience (Yes! Ambience) is great at all of them. Started eating the hot dogs but have tried most everything

I know hotdogs! I was at the Conney Island hotdog eating contest every year as a child.

This is not the best hot dog in Chicago - The best is Maxwell Street. This is a close second though, and its really good because of consistency.

I have eaten here three times now, with different companions each time: family, coworkers, friends. In each case, we've had a good time here. Yes, it's touristy (and since I don't live in Chicago, I guess I qualify). Yes, it's a chain.

I have only been to Portillo's a few times, but my father and my friend were both born and raised in the Chicago area so I am writing this on behalf of them too. Everytime I have been to Portillo's it is fast, hot and fresh, and delicious.

Portilos has grown enormously over the years to what is now essentially a local fast food haven. However, the quality of their hot dogs has not been affected in the least by this growth which is amazing. Each standard dog is cooked to

Ate lunch at Portillo's with coworkers after hearing their rave reviews. I was concerned about the long lines when entering, but the line was quick and the atomosphere strong.
Ordered the dog, fry and drink special and the the lunch hit the spot . I will be back and will join in the group that give Portillo's "the thumbs up."

Whenever I am in Chicago, I make sure not to forget to stop at Portillo's! The Italian Beef sandwich as well as the Chedder & Beef crossaint are excellent. The chedder fries are the best I've ever had.
