The Best Hot Dog in Chicago


What a find! And all thanks to a recommendation that I found on minube. I loved everything on this five day trip so much that I went again.

Famous for a Reason

They call it Portillo's Hot Dogs, but it's the Italian Beef you should come for. Their famous recipe is famous for a reason: it's tender beef marinated in delicious flavors and piled high on Italian bread. It's hard to believe that you can get such a great sandwich with fries and a shake at such a low price, and I promise you won't leave hungry.

It's a little messy to eat, but isn't everything good in life a little messy sometimes? If you really want it juicy, ask for it dipped, but never, ever get it dry. That's akin to buying a $100 steak and having it burnt to a crisp before eating. Add hot peppers if you dare: they're a great flavor and live up to their "hot" name.
