I made it a point to make sure that after both of my children have been born, Portillo's is the first public place outside of the hospital they go to. Even though they couldn't eat solid food yet I have to think that they still enjoyed the wonderful smell of the best hot dogs and Italian beefs in the world.... More

The best "fast food" in the world. The best chocolate cake in the world. Their baked potatoes are really good and a nice change from fries.

With all the traffic on a Saturday, it should be understood that things move a little slowly. However, as always, the food is worth it. I love the chop salad, and my husband likes the Italian beef with peppers. Definitely worth the visit.

if you have not experienced Portillo's, you are missing out. the interior is always fun to look at with its gangster-era decor. it can get crowded and loud at times, but it is so worth it!

We stopped in yesterday to grab a quick carry-out lunch for the three of us: my wife, my son, and me. I got my usual hot dog and fries, and the dog was great. The fries were a little off yesterday, we all agreed--not quite as salty as usual, not fried up like they usually are, so we didn't finish... More

Visiting our Oswego family, we are always sure to come here for ribs. Honest. We have not found any more tender or succulent than here. And for those wishing fiber rather than fat, the salads are good, too.
