If you want an authentic Chicago dining experience, then a visit to Portillo’s is a must. Once a simple hot dog stand known as “The Dog House,” Portillo’s grew to become a Chicago institution. With several locations in Illinois – and one right here in Vernon Hills! – you will always have a Portillo’s nearby.

Menu Options Any Chicagoan Will Love

Portillo’s specializes in Chicago-style food such as hot dogs, Maxwell Street Polish, and Italian beef. Other delectable menu items include char-broiled hamburgers, a variety of pasta dishes, chicken sandwiches, and a collection of dishes known as Barnelli’s Exclusives. As an added treat, all of these menu items can be accompanied by a selection of scrumptious shakes and malts.

Retro-themes Make Dining an Experience

While the food at Portillo’s is definitely noteworthy, it isn’t the only thing that makes a visit to this eatery an event.  The retro themes available at many Portillo’s locations make each dining experience truly memorable. Themes include:

  • Old Chicago
  • The ’20s
  • The ’30s-era Prohibition
  • The ’40s-era Gangster
  • The ’50s
  • The ’60s
  • The ’70s
  • Old Miner’s – Western

Because themes vary by location, it’s worth stopping into a few – or all! – of Portillo’s eateries to experience each one.
