I absolutely love to eat at Portillos. Sure they are a little pricey but the food is so good. They have the best chocolate cake on this side of town. It is to die for. I usually get their cheeseburger and fries and sometimes when I'm feeling I should probably eat healthy I get a salad. Every time I have to work later than normal I stop by Portillos and I get my food to go. Don't live in the area? Well Portillos can send you the food with instructions on how to heat it up. If you are in a really big rush to get somewhere I really do not recommend going during lunch. There are huge lines even though the Portillos staff tries to get people going as fast as possible. I love going to different Portillos because each one has a separate theme.

Portillo's started as a hot dog stand I believe on North Avenue. It's grown to several stores.

This (fast) food is to DIE for. The store in Elmhurst, Illinois is decorated well and the atmosphere is great, upbeat and is always crowded. Yup, the food is THAT good.

They have everything from Vienna hot dogs that my husband craves to my all time favorite of a Beef & Cheddar on a Criss. w/ Hot and Sweet Peppers. Their beef sandwiches, no matter what form they come in, are always PERFECT. I do NOT think I've ever had a bad meal at Portillo's.

Also, they freeze the beef/juice and sell it. It's recommended to call ahead. Save any left over juice to use as stock in a soup or stew - you'll be glad you did. I don't know what they do to this food -- but it's addicting.

Portillo's does have a drive through that is often backed up for a dang big distance. Don't let that deter you....they have somebody that comes out and takes the orders so you can zip up and pay and get your food.

Editorial from

In Short
Dick Portillo opened his first restaurant from a trailer with no running water in 1963 in Villa Park, Ill. Today, each location has a unique theme that reflects the founder's love of history and Chicago. Menu favorites…
