Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.
This Portillo's Hot Dogs is located at 170 W. North Ave., in Northlake. There is plenty of parking. It is like most other Portillo's. The staff is friendly and efficient. We ordered a beef sandwich with sweet peppers and giardiniera. More importantly, we ordered a piece of their great chocolate cake. From one hot dog cart in 1963, Portillo's Hot Dogs has expanded to about 41 locations, though sometimes it seems like there are many more. Besides the Chicago area, they open restaurants in areas where there are Chicago transplants. Come for the beef or the hot dog, but linger for that chocolate cake.

The sandwiches are asian-inspired and very good with fresh and unique ingredients. There are choices such as Vietnamese Ban Mi and Thai Chicken Satay. Sandwiches comes with chips and are a good size that are sure to satisfy. Overall a very good lunch option!

Thank you for your interest in Emilio’s Tapas. Emilio’s Tapas is an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar Restaurant conveniently located in West Suburban Hillside.

Flew into Chicago to meet a friend and drive back down to TX. We made one stop, and this was it. It just brings you back to the good old days. Great customer service with an equally great attitude. Sure the food is simple, but that’s the whole point. The hot dogs are on point just covered in fries and the few toppings they offer. Mustard, relish etc. Saddle up to the stand up counter and munch away. If you are looking for a good dog I highly recommend.

My wife and I went to eat our regular meals from Denny's since we were staying right across the road from there. We are from Dallas now living in Toledo Ohio and came to Chicago to site see. We go to Denny's once or twice a month so I can compare the food from a few different areas. Let's just say that THIS time the meal was EXCELLENT... We had the nachos and the sampler plate, as well as my wife getting the tilapia. Not only were the portions huge, but it was EXACTLY as ordered and it was the best meal that either one of us has had at ANY of the Denny's we've ever been to!!!
AND to top it all off, the service was GREAT, the woman who helped us was great AND funny as heck!!! Would recommend this place HIGHLY!!!

This is an environmentally sound restaurant that required many years of patience to get the approval to build the wind turbine that generates all the electricity for this restaurant.
As you enter into this restaurant it resonates the historical decor.
Just a fantastic place to eat and enjoy looking at all the features of the walls, ceiling, wood work.
Historians say that Al Capone was at this bar. A must read from their menu.
And the food... The blackened catfish had a very nice balance of spice. The salmon was encrusted with a nice crunch of walnuts and flaked perfectly into the fork.
Service was a tad slower on a Saturday night and was to be expected on a busy night.
We enjoyed sitting in the bar area where all the history was. Be patient for your service and food. The servers were making many steps to accommodate everyone as busy as it was. If you go on a busy night don't plan for anything after because it might take longer to get your food but well worth it. Not many restaurants run off their own power so it was fun just to hear the story and that they have the renewable mindset.

Just stopped by with the family. We had a taste for crepes. We will be coming back. Restaurant is small and trendy but serves fantastic crepes. One person tried the Hail Caesar crepe, which had chicken, spinach, roma tomatoes, and cheeses. This was a great choice. We then shared the Bomb, which is brown sugar, cinnamon, and homemade frosting on two rolled crepes. Another great choice.
What we liked about the choices is that they are divided into 3 categories; breakfast, sweet and savory. The Bomb mentioned above was really sweet, that is why we shared it.
We are definitely returning when we visit our family in Elmhurst. Prices are midrange and crepes are prepared on site. So plan on allowing time to wait and enjoy. This is now our favorite place for crepes.

I don't know about anything "ancient" here. The pasta is hand-crafte dso it's certainly not ancient. And the people are a nice mix of young, old and families. All nationalities. A cute little birthday girl with a sparkler. Buzzing but not noisy.
In the first floor of Oak Brook Center office building. Convenient to garage. Staff is knowledgeable, quick and welcoming. For us, quick seating. Near window. Lots of action.
I had the scallops in angel hair. Very good. Our family members all had three plates of shrimp linguini.They offer brick oven pizzas. Margueritas pizzas are specialities. Pistachio gellato is delicious.
