Prior to the start of my work shift, I stopped in to pick up Portillo’s Hot Dogs for lunch, and as like my initial visit to this particular location in Niles Illinois it did not disappoint. I swear I would eat at Portillo’s on a weekly basis if I had a location closer to my neighborhood, hehe.

Jumbo hot dog w/ fries and drink
I joked with my co-worker about the size of my order. Can you believe that this is a small drink and a small order of fries? Crazy!

Wow, that looks good! We don’t have that chain down here in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Portillo’s is the bomb! From what I see they are only in Chicago & Chicagoland area.
That looks like large servings. Enjoy!
you are a rotten person. I am now starving. Chicago Dogs are not found in the DC area. Luckily i have everything to make them at home and that is dinner Wednesday night. If i can wait that long.
Oh damn, that sucks. One of these days I will like to make one myself. I’ve been wanting Portillo’s for a while now.
it is all about the bun at that point. you have to get the buns with the Chicago flavor.
Never knew there was a chicago flavor bun
it has the larger seeds on the outside than the regular hot dog bun.
Gotcha! That is another way to catch the fakers making those fake chicago hot dogs. The nerve
There is a place in downtown DC, the original Ollie’s Trolley, that serves a legit Chicago dog! But they are very far from my customer.
Just looked Ollie’s up. Just terrible that they are downtown and rated overall a 3-star. Yikes!
they are not for people that don’t understand the concept. That is the reality of those fun downtown DC places. they are for those in the know!
Have you ever thought of cooking your favourites yourself?
Of course! On the days when I am not working.
