I hate to give this place an -OK review, it was more like 3.5 stars and given the price it could probably be 4 ... but I just wasn't too impressed with the hot dog here. I have to say I am a fan of Pink's in Los Angeles quite a bit even though they don't have as fantastic of a Yelp rating as Portillo's, but in the end its all about your own taste buds.
The line was nonexistent because we came during an odd time of the day. It smelled delicious in here, and the service was super super quick. Your order comes up almost immediately and there is plenty of seating for you, yourself or a huge group of people. The hot dogs are wrapped in this paper tray thing, so you can just dig in without getting too messy which is nice.
Overall, first bite, not too much impression, the bread was soft and the hot dog was there. The veggies on top didn't do much for me and I ended up having to lather it on with mustard to finish. I can see it as great drunk food. I don't know.
I love Portillo's. The ITALIAN BEEF, the dogs, the ribs, burgers, the slaw,... the fries are just okay. Everything is good to great, and the Italian beef is tasty. If you're going to get one item on the menu before you die, get the Italian Beef "dipped" with hot peppers.
