Portillo's

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

Reviewed By Sharnord - Saint Louis, Missouri

Efficient service. Consistent quality. No matter what location! Try the Italian Beef/Italian Sausage Sandwich. Terrific testing beef and get the extra gravy at no additional charge. The sausage with fennel is incomparable. Great onion rings, too. The jumbo Chicago Hot Dog could not have been better. Had fries and a soda. All for $19.26. A real buy!

Reviewed By MidwestFred - United States

This was our first-time visit to this store-front restaurant, and were we ever pleasantly surprised! We stopped in for lunch.and were promptly greeted by very friendly staff and seated.

The ambiance is what one would expect from a French bistro - simply-decorated, hardwood floors, and french music.

There are daily specials, and a price-fixe menu at lunch for $25. We split a pear salad, and both had the specials - a beef skewer, and chicken breast. Both had delicious sauces and were accompanied by fresh-cut vegetables.

There is an extensive wine list and dessert elections, which unfortunately we did not partake becasue this was a quick lunch for us. But we will definitely return, and recommend Retro Bistro for authentic French dining in Chicago's northwest suburbs!.

Went there for the lunch special. Ordered the sesame chicken. It was excellent. The portions were huge!! Great service at the right price. The atmosphere was inviting. A very clean contemporary look. Will definitely return. Try to get there when they open at 11:30am. By noon, the place is packed! Also, for the lunch special, you get soup or salad, egg roll, entrée, rice, hot tea, and a fortune cookie!

We chose Artistic Cuisine based on TA recommendations and were not disappointed! We all enjoyed our dinners very much- salmon, pot roast and steak! Our server was really nice and gave the birthday girl a complimentary tiramisu with a candle for dessert! We had a great time and would definitely recommend to family and friends!

Lou Malnati's Pizzeria

Reviewed By Chris M - Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Lou Malnati was a pioneer in creating Chicago deep dish pizza. A fantastic butter crust, fresh toppings and great service! Great for families, as well as couples.

We frequently visit the one in Schaumburg. Located on the corner of two busy intersections and in a building that was once a very large home. Unique in its atmosphere and decor.

A nice relaxing bar area while waiting for your order, or waiting for friends.

Just a great place for a great dinner, spent with great friends!

Walker Bros. Original Pancake House-Arlington Hts

Reviewed By Amy Ryann R - Elmwood Park, IL

Free parking lot. Stairs or ramp to get in.

Gorgeous inside features lots of wood, stained glass, 1930's and Victorian themed glass and art work. Tables and booths available. Large space. Clean.

We visited mid evening, only two other tables were filled at the time. Service was mediocre from everyone we encountered, could have been friendlier.

Had apple pancake, large, very gooey. Asked for whipped cream and powdered sugar with it. Was okay. Ordered bacon they burned twice, charged me 5.00 for three shriveled pieces. Was not happy about that. Waitress did not take it off the bill. Coffee was very good, good temp and fresh. Menu offers many omelettes, crepes, eggs and potatoes. Only a few sandwiches. Not designed for lunches and dinners. lox available for 11.00 but did not see portion size. Tried spicy harbonaro potatoes with pico, were tasty.

Would I go again? Yes

Pricing? Okay, slightly over priced but normal for this type of location. I really loved the decor so it was hard to complain because of this.

Recommendations: get a few things and share with someone to try multiple items

I have been coming here for over 25 years. What I like best is the innovative cutting edge menu. The omelettes and all the other breakfast dishes are creative and delicious. If it wasn’t for Walker Bros., this would be the best breakfast in Arlington Heights. One day I might try lunch!

Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe

Reviewed By alexanderblake - Chicago, IL

One of the most valuable characteristics in today's society is consistency. Consistency in business practices, consistency in personal responsibilities, consistency in showing up ready to take on the world -- even, albeit slightly unrelated, the consistency of grandma's homemade pasta sauce!

Wildberry is consistently amazing. While you will almost always wait 30+ minutes for breakfast it IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. The food is always delicious - picture perfect in its delivery with just the right mixture of meal vs. plate. The coffee bar in the lobby / waiting area allows you to grab a smoothie or a macchiato while you wait for your table, and it consistently delivers a treat for your taste buds.

I know what I like, so I always order Eggs Benedict. The poached eggs are wonderfully done, leaving a yoke that cascades out like caramel on a sundae. My wife orders some variation of waffle/pancake adorned with beautiful fruits and berries, gently smothered in velvety maple syrup.

It's such a great place that we had our very first breakfast date there we had a server named Choli, then came back (we live in Texas now) two years later, engaged. We had Choli again! THEN, we came back the following year married, and Choli remembered us!

With family still living in Schaumburg, Wildberry is a staple we do not skip on our trips home. Ever.

So don't be deterred by other reviews complaining about the wait. You'll wait an hour outside Richard Walker's for food that isn't even a fraction as good as Wildberry. Come hungry, grab a mocha while you wait, and enjoy your new breakfast tradition: Wildberry.
