Portillo’s, which is the main entity within The Portillo Restaurant Group, is a chain of restaurants that specialize in serving Chicago-style food. Portillo’s is located primarily throughout the Chicago metropolitan area, and also has two locations in southern California.

Menu
Portillo’s specialty item, the Beef n’ Cheddar Croissant
The Portillo’s menu includes a variety of items, including Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, hamburgers, sandwiches, ribs, and salads, as well as beer and wine. One popular item is the Beef n’ Cheddar Croissant, which consists of Italian beef and shredded cheddar, and they suggest adding sweet or hot peppers, on a 10″ croissant.

They also boast dessert items such as very popular chocolate cake (notable for the rumor that mayonnaise as an ingredient) and milkshakes, and a mix of the two, the famous Chocolate Cake Shake, which is basically a piece of the chocolate cake blended in with a chocolate shake.
The chain’s main competition is mostly local, privately owned stores, most of which also specialize in Italian beef and Chicago-style hot dogs. The largest competitors of Portillo’s in Chicagoland are Scooby’s Red Hots and Buona Beef.

Portillo’s has been operating in Southern California since October 11, 2005, at the Buena Park Downtown shopping center in Buena Park, near Knott’s Berry Farm, and they also opened a location in Moreno Valley, California, in 2008. A location also exists in Merrillville, Indiana, though this is still well within the firm’s home market of Chicagoland.

Portillo’s had licensed restaurants using its recipes and themes in Tokyo, Japan, in the late 1980s and early ’90s. However, the Japanese restaurants did not fully follow the same tradition as the Chicago-area stores, and all eventually closed. Portillo’s also delivers part of its menu to all 50 US states in a united venture alongside Eli’s Cheesecake and Lou Malnati’s pizzeria.
