horrible. went through drive through and when I got home they had compleatly screwed up my order and forgotten an item. 14 of the 34 dollars were messed up and 3 were missing. I no longer had time to go back and when I called them to see what they can do I sat on hold for over 20 mintues to be told nothing they can do. Will never go back to this location again.

If your in town visiting and don't go to Portillo's then you've done everything wrong. At the time of writing this review there are 560 reviews.... that should say enough. Born in Chicago and live three blocks away can be dangerous because I've never had a bad or mediocre meal and definitely go too much. See you soon!

The food was good for fast food. The prices were on point. On a busy day this place is mass chaos, and the service is mediocre at best. I would recommend going for lunch, rather than dinner.

A Chicago classic! If you're from out of town, you should definitely stop in for an Italian beef sandwich or Chicago-style hot dog! Even though this downtown location always draws a crowd, there's always a place to sit by the time your food is up. I've had their food catered for events a handful of times and it was really good offsite as well!

I love this place. Tasty and juicy Italian beef, and really good hot dog, in a very convenient location. BUT, I can't give it five stars because it is always so damn crowded and chaotic at the counter where you get your order. They're fast though.

I think it might be a chain, but the one on Clark has got to be the mothership. It's extremely kitschy inside, set up like a food court with a fake red brick facade where the ordering windows are. It's a great spot for a quality classic Chicago dog. They take some getting used to, but I'm now a fan of the fresh ingredients and the neon green Chicago relish. Even with a long line you can have your food in about fifteen minutes from walking in. They do much more than dogs, too--burgers pizza, panini, pastas, and various other things. Oh, and frozen custard. There's lots of seating on 2 levels. There are also clean bathrooms. And it's a much more worthwhile fast food experience than the rock and roll McDonald's across the street.

A Chicago staple! Tasty dogs & fries, and super cheap! Yes, they serve alcohol (and at a reasonable price). Cool vibe all around. Definitely worth checking out.

Highly recommended! I'm an Chinese and really not a fan of the 'Chicago style hot dog (yeah I tried it but no special feeling)', but the Italian beef is a must-have! The beef is so juicy and tasty, surprisingly like the beef (noodle) I had in Kyoto, Japan.
