    Please...yes I wasted 3 characters on that and the explanation. This is so average it should not even rate here. There are a hundred better mom & pops out there. Support smaller better businesses.

    The Portillo beef dog was the best. The fries and onion rings were wonderful! This place is cheap, fast and good. The space has an amazing vibe. Must have in Chicago.

    The hot dog is served any way you like it, but go for traditional Chicago style: topped with mustard, relish, chopped onions, sliced red tomatoes, a pickle spear, and sport peppers.

  • Tabitha J.

    The chocolate cake shake tasted like a swiss roll blended into chocolate ice cream.

    One of those rare places that's got a lot of tourists but is nonetheless really fun. I liked the grilled sausage more than the Chicago dog, personally.

    Despite the crowds and lines at lunchtime, I only waited 10 minutes between walking in and getting my food. Cheap food I might add.

    What could possibly be better than taking a very well-liked slice of cake, adding ice cream and putting it through a blender? As it turns out, nothing. For $3.05, sugary bliss is imminent. Read more
