Being a vegetarian, this would not be my first restaurant of choice. However, I have been here a few times over the years. Portillo’s has locations all over the Chicagoland area and they are best known for their hot dogs and Italian beef.
The fries and onion rings are really good. I cannot comment on the hot dogs as I do not eat meat, but they have great salads. Most people in the Chicagoland area love their hot dogs. This restaurant is cheap; everything on the menu is under $10. Price Menu
There is no waiter service at this restaurant as you order at the counter. It is always crowded so there is usually a sizable wait.
This popular restaurant is always very crowded and noisy. Even going on the weekdays there was always a crowd.
If you are a big fan of hot dogs, beef, and greasy fried foods you will most likely love Portillo's.
