  • Making a Chicago-style hot dog, with all its requisite toppings, is also known as "dragging it through the garden".
  • Double burger with cheese, and chopped salad is highly recommended.
  • Get the Cheese Fries. Yes, these are frozen and this is fast food, but that doesn't stop us. Crispy and well salted with a piping hot cup of bright yellow cheese sauce. Sometimes, that's all you need.
  • Love the BBQ Chicken Salad but get the dressing on the side. They're heavy handed.
  • Italian beef is the best here.
  • what a place! so much going on all over. start simple: get two classic chicago-style hot dogs. lemonade on the side. it's plenty for your first time.
  • Save yourself sometime and go straight to the Hot Dog list. This place makes one killer dog.
  • Three words: Chocolate. Cake. Shake.
  • It's a miracle: Chicago-style hot dog place AND beer! Yeap, go for the Samuel Adams on tap and do not get used to! It's not easy to find a good hot dog place that sells beer! Thanks Portillo's!
  • Chicago dog. I know you're gonna want to try the Polish, but it was just eh.
  • You are not a true Chicagoan if you have never been to Portillos!
  • Eating a hot dog here is like eating a pizza in Italy; they're that good.
  • At Portillos, you either order the Italian Beef or a hot dog. Anything else is just weird. Some people LOVE the choc cake, whatever, order a beef you freak.
  • Open late and GREAT food!
  • The first Portillo's didn't even have running water. Today, no two Portillo's look the same, inspired by different Chicago histories. The Hot Dogs, on the other hand, are consistently Chicago's best.
