Trust me, if my freezer wasn't stocked I'd have talked myself into it by now too. I go like once a month and this month my birthday falls on the 30th so I'm going to wait and go score my free piece of chocolate cake with my beef sandwich. I've been doing it for over ten years now. LOL before the online crap came along and cluttered it up.

No problem. The website doesn't really do them justice. The newer restaurants are massive and all decked out on the inside with memorabilia and neon. They staff probably 20 people inside most of the time but the kitchens are so large that everyone has room to move and do their job.

When I go next time I'll remind myself to snap some pictures inside for you. There's one a couple miles from my house that I drive by sometimes depending on where I'm working that day. I'll get you some drive thru shots too.

The only out of state location I've been to was in Wisconsin and it was the same routine there except, they had bratwurst and cheese curds on the menu along with all the other Chicago style goodies. It wasn't as busy as the ones around here but was still humming better than the McDonalds. That was also a couple years ago and the store was only a few months in so, who knows by now.

Interesting. Thanks!

Since I have never seen one in person, I really appreciate the input!

It's how it has always been. They started as a carry out place so they probably just kept the tradition.

Most of the smaller hot dog/beef places around here do the same thing, though nearly not on the scale that Portillos does it on.

Is that the new norm because of Covid or is that how it's always been?
👍️0
newmedman newmedman 3 years ago
yes. Even when you dine in the restaurant they wrap the sandwiches, serve the food in to go containers and bagged up just like it would be at the drive-thru. You could carry it right out the door if you changed your mind and decided not to sit.
👍️0
eastunder eastunder 3 years ago
And you can get all of that thru a drive thru?
👍️0
newmedman newmedman 3 years ago
Yes, it's crazy. They are never not busy and it's not just junk food. I know people who go for their chopped salad and pasta dishes as well. The ribs aren't bad either.

eastunder eastunder 3 years ago
That sounds like the 'In-N-Out burger' around here.

Always a big line. Then you pull up to the drive thru and see employee on top of employee in masks... and you know what?

Who cares? ;)

We just want good junk food.

I didn't realize Portillos is so desired!

I really wish they had one in Colorado.

If this is dropping on pandemic fears then it's a really good buy here. The drive-thrus and carry outs are where the action is at. I've seen them 50 cars deep at non-peak times but they take your order while you're in line and it's ready by the time you get to the window so the wait time would be normal for a freshly prepared meal, or maybe a little longer if you are the last in line, but people don't seem to care..

The dine-in is nice but it's not a big loss if they have to shut that down. The people will just be in the line of cars or order ahead and pick it up curbside like I did during the first outbreak. Their alcohol sales are marginal so no loss there.

I just keep buying and buying shares here in my ROTH. I live in Chicago and I don't see how with more locations in the future this stays in the 30s. I'd like to see where this is in 5 or 10 years. Long play

One last shout out to Jim's original and Manny's stay tough my friends.

I could give it all up to the steak houses that harbor downtown but my fucking grill does just as good of a job. Was kind of bummed when Lawry's closed but I can do the same thing in my backyard.

PTLO will be just fine. I just want to get some real beef into some peoples mouths. They will not be disappointed

We got football sized burritos too, but I enjoy some enchiladas with a salad on the side.

Once again, not going public but the food literally kicks ass. Don't be ashamed we're all gonna get fat at some point. I just run too much to give a shit.

the food is so good though. Please buy PTLO and eat your ass off when you go there! It will help all of us!

I go to the polish deli for pork and dumplings. It's fucking delicious and I'm pretty sure they aren't going public anytime soon.

I',m happy with my position here.

Well, I live around this city so it's not a prayer from me. There are other beef sandwiches that I throw into the bath water, but like I said, I grew up here so I'm a little judgmental.

I'm still kind of pissed that my local beef stand got canceled but I still enjoy Portillo's and I'm hoping that others enjoy it too.

I wouldn't have kicked in a bunch of dough if I thought it wouldn't make a Chicago style pizza. We're all here just sharing.

I'm glad you love portillos but there are smaller places that do better. I'm just a homer so I don't care.

4th on the list?

Whaaatttt?

That doesn't make Portillos sound good. How many are on your list? 30?

Portillos is FIRST on my list.

(But it's a list of one. ;)

I don't tend to do beef sandwiches, so I have nothing to compare it to.

LOL shit I grew up with Portillos I had another place close to here named dukes but panera took it over.

My mom's fudge is getting the props today. I'm not sure where you get your beef sandwiches from but I have a treasure trove from the best of them.

I have the best and there's no hitch. Porty comes in at number four but I still bought their stock. They do really have good hot dogs, but I can't stand those fucking things so I bump them down the list.

HAHAHAHA!

I had an order in and it got filled much like my beef sandwich and chocolate cake

You better join this then

https://www.portillos.com/freecake/

(Honestly - I'm having more fun on their website right now! LOL)

I wish they were a franchise. I'm in a giving mood and my son and Law probably would have enjoyed that gift! ;)

Family owned though.

I do like the look of their beef bus.

Now that's a concept. It even has its own instagram

https://www.instagram.com/beefbusofficial/

That's what they should franchise!!!!!

In Denver? People downtown would be all over that!

yes, I was waiting because I knew the IPO would have its dips. I had an order in and it got filled much like my beef sandwich and chocolate cake.

They are going to be a hit, regardless of what my hillJack brother in law thinks.

I'm still a little uneasy but I think I did good without having to dip into the IPO. They have some really kick ass hot dogs too. Nothing like anyone else gets to taste. It's one of a kind and that's a businesses that I'm glad to put my money behind.

No shame, full bellies.

30?

Wow! You tagged the bottom?

You ARE good!

Kudos!

Food is awesome! My son in law has it shipped to him in Colorado.

I have tried the Italian beef & Sausage combo, which was wonderful!

So - No excuses for not trying it, People.

Get it shipped to you

I've been to a couple outside of Illinois in the midwest and they are booming there too.

https://www.portillos.com/locations/

I'm kind of spoiled growing up around Chicago with all the mom and pop shops so I think that they are overpriced for their portions but the food is outstanding and they never seem to not play to a packed house.

I also like that they suit their menus to a little homestyle flair. For instance, the Wisconsin locations have a pretty kick ass bratwurst that you can't get here in Chi-town but they still bring our home cooking with them.

I hope they do well. I've been going there for the better part of 25 years and my only complaint is when it's time to open my wallet lol, which is good for a shareholder as long as the consumer is willing.
