Had to try Chicagos finest today since there was no line in the AM.
Started with the a chili dog and fries and I must say the both of those where about a 2/10. Chili taste like sloppy Joe mix and the fries are freezer isle crinkle cuts. Thank goodness I got the beef sando with hot peppers. That was really good with a side of the gravy to pour all over. Will be back for that no doubt [Linked Image]

The only thing I liked at Portillo (Chicago) was ice cream.

Feel the same way as I did when In N Out came, and Shake Shack rolled in….ok, but nothing special. Folks from there think they are great,but trying them after the hype….just ok.

I will stick with the Italian beef when I go. The ones in Chicago have ribs so used to eat there every week on rib night.

Most people I know from Chicago think its meh, especially since it was bought out. They will go eat it here, but not on the stop list when they go back to Chicago.
