Surprisingly, for me it was a great meal, the baguette was so rich in flavor and the fact that I was starving, I almost finished the entire meal.. waaah... my diet was being jeopardized once again. Not at all I envisioned how gratifying indeed eating this kind of hotdog. I did try plenty of dogs in my lifetime but I believe the Portillo's exceeded my expectations.
The foremost thing that caught my attention was the ambiance of the place inside. Struck by their menu, I grabbed the Italian Beef special with fries as served with an utterly baked French baguette together with sweet or hot pepper of your pick. Plus we added the Jumbo hotdog or Portillo's dog to truly experience the savor of a genuine Chicago style hotdog.
