Portillo's Hot Dogs

Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.

Reviewed By darrelltloz - Camdenton, MO

You have to watch this operation closely, there are over 30 people filling orders, organized chaos, BUT IT WORKS. Staff is friendly, helpful and courteous, prices are fair and food is served hot and good. They serve an astonishing number of guests every day. I do believe they have changed the flavor of the juice used on the Italian beef, it appears to be less "Italiany" but it's still one of the best beef sandwiches anywhere.

The baristas are super nice at this location but it is always so busy. The drive through has a really awkward layout which leads to lots of traffic jams.

South Moon BBQ

Reviewed By BigPaPa88

My family went here looking for some good BBQ. We ordered two pull pork sandwiches and the pull pork sliders for the kid. I ordered my sandwhich Northern style which came with dry slaw and sauce.

The kids meals were $5 And came with 1 small slider and some fries. The pull pork sandwiches were $7 and the sides ranged from $2-3, with a cornbread muffin for $1.

For our sides we got fried potato salad and may and cheese.

The sandwiches were dry. There was a hint of smoke, but certainly lacked flavor. We had to add sauce just to add something for taste and add some moisture so we could swallow. The coleslaw was dry, not my liking, but that is more of a preference.

The fried potato salad was decent. It was fried potato chunks with a hot sauce with flavor comparable to BWW's medium wing sauce. The Mac and cheese was said to have a smoke flavor, which it did, but was not to our liking.

The cornbread was pretty good. They offered a few different sauces. We tried the Sweet St Louis and the Sweet hot. They were ok. The Sweet St Louis had a bit of a ketchup taste more than a Bbq sauce.

The cost for 2 adults and 1 child with water for drinks was $28 without tip.

We sat out on the patio which was a nice little place with a view of the river. A fire pit with a nice fire would be a great addition.

Service was ok, waitress did not even though we were there for several minutes becuase she was busy talking with friends in the parking lot. But was still friendly and attentive once she realized we were there.

I wanted this to be so much better, but sadly it wasn't. If your in the mood for BBQ, I would recommend Smokes in Yorkville over this place.

Taco Madre

Reviewed By JessicaMomof4 - Westfield, Indiana

The food here is so good and it can get busy because of that. There is sit down or to go. We had the tacos and I really liked them all. Chorizo was very good, some places don't cook it right, but this was very well done. Fish taco was my favorite of all the kinds I tried.

Two Brothers Roundhouse

Reviewed By heatherquick - Chicago, Illinois

We eat here several times a year. Their specials are always interesting. Yesterday we had Persimmon Carpaccio. It was delicious. Love the quirky rooms here and the history behind it. Last night we ate in the lounge where the bar was from the Chicago World Fair.
