In town for a conference. Had Hubs, my mom and our two kids with us for a light dinner. Cashier wasn't too helpful with it being our first time, and I found it odd you couldn't order a custom salad since they had all the fixins right there. It was also odd all the high chairs and boosters were piled in the outdoor patio and there weren't any inside. No biggie, once we knew where they were. Just odd.

We were able to find something for everyone and were pleased to get a good size cup of fresh strawberries, raspberries and blackberries for the toddler. The 7yo wolfed down his whole cheeseburger and our salads were just right, and tasty. Wish the salads weren't $10/each, but they were good.

We may be back again this week to try their lemon cake.

Close to the hotel, not too hectic mid-afternoon, service is quick and salad fixin's fresh. Had the Garden salad, great option w/o onions! The bread is a little lame. For dessert: small Chocolate Cake Shake. Yes, it was everything i thought it would be. At 850 calories, not happening too often, though;)

We try to drive up from San Diego once a month to get the original Italian beef to die for. It's just like being in Chicago. You can't go wrong with anything from here.

Everything is unbelievably good and affordable. They have the best tamales that I ever had. The line is ridiculously long but it's worth it. The only problem is parking. Even with a pretty large lot, it is almost impossible to find a spot during lunch time. Luckily we were staying at a nearby hotel, so we could just walk over. Wish there were one in CO.

As a Chicago native, living in southern Cali, I was elated to find a Portillo's!!! It was a mile from my hotel. My cravings for a Chicago hot dog was fulfilled!
