pizza and italian beefs rock
boy did I miss my italian beefs and deep dish pizza. thanks for making it easy to receive
Beef and Pizza Combo
I was born and raised in Hoffman Estates, Il. I left there almost 40 years back. This italion beef and pizza combo brought back so many memories of old friends and the wonderful food that came from our area. you all need to do some beef/sausage combo's that were prevalent back then. The food and the delivery service was excellent !!! Frank Peters
Best Beef in Chicago!
Portillo's Beef is simply the best Italian Beef in the city! The beef literally melts in your mouth, bursting with flavor! All time fav!!!
Yum yum yummy!
Can never get enough!!
Neither my husband nor I have ever been to Chicago, being able to order food and have it delivered to door from such amazing restaurants in Chicago was simply awesome, we got to taste foods we would have never had to opportunity to try before, Thank you Lou Malnati's! for giving us this opportunity, the Italian beef and pizza were both out of this world delicious. we can get nothing like this anywhere near where we live. we will be ordering again soon, we are looking forward to trying everything we can from Tastes of Chicago!!!
Chris(Crescent Valley ,NV)
This is the second time my family has bought this as our Christmas Eve dinner. My wife's family is from Chicago so it's nice to bring a bit of that in for the holidays. The beefs are fantastic as are the pizzas. We definitely recommend!
overall pleased, but purchase did not arrive when it was supposed to. it was supposed to arrive on 24th but did not get there till 26th. first time ordering. that is really my only complaint. jus wish it would have got there for Christmas cause that's what I paid for.
Wowed recipient of this gift pack
I sent this gift pack to my daughter in Washington. She loved the taste of back home in Chicago. Excellent gift to give to transplanted Chicagoans.
Tasty and fast
These are my 2 favorite Chicago foods. Delivered fast. Tastes great.
Yummy Chicago food in San Diego
Lots of food for a great price!
Mandy (Aurora ,IL)
Everything was perfect. The package arrived on time as advertised. This is a great gift idea for folks from Chicago now leaving in other parts of the country
We have been buying the pizzas for over a year and they've been great so we wanted try a different product. We got the pizza and Italian beef sandwich combo and were thrilled with the Portillo's sandwiches. I had a problem stopping with eating just one, so after 2, I figured it was time to take a break. Next we'll try the Carson's ribs and I'm sure they'll be just as good as when I ordered them at Carson's restaurant in Chicago! Thanks!!!
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza Combo
Reminds me of where I grew up, dont miss the weather but for sure miss the food.
Ken Maus(Los Banos,CA)
no sausage on the pizza
I give the beef 5 stars and the pizza zero. There was no meat on the pizza- literally no meat. The pizza was marked "sausage" but had nothing on it other than cheese and tomatoes. Must have been a misprint. I moved from Chicago to Portland, OR last year. This was the first time I've had my beloved Chicago food. Kind of a bummer
The beef was absolutely amazing! I will definitely order again!
My parents were born and raised in Chicago and portillos is always a go to every time we vist there. I ordered this to surprise my family for a birthday dinner out here in Seattle and it was flawless, I used a crock pot to heat the gravy and made sure to pull every piece of beef apart and put it all in the crock pot for a few minutes and it turned out perfect! The most difficult part was looking in the freezer everyday and knowing we had to wait for the birthday dinner before we could eat it! Will most likely do this a few times a year.
We were so please with our order of Beef sandwiches and two pizzas. Everything was delivered incredibly quickly (very surprised and happy about that!) and all the products were clearly labeled so you know what was what. We will definitely order again in the future.
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza Combo
Just excellent. Ships well, tastes great.
Better than the restaurant. Unbelievable Great food
A taste of home
I was raised in the Chicago area and now live in Denver. The beef was exactly as I remember. The kit provided everything you need for a great beef sandwich.
Good thus far, haven't eaten all
I have had a pepperoni and one sausage pizza from Lou Malnatis, haven't tried the Portillos italian beef package. I was nervous that the pepperoni and or sausage would taste old and nasty, as a lot of frozen foods at grocery stores taste, but nope: it tasted really really good! I live in Springfield, MO and it is sad that a pizza shipped frozen from Chicago is the best tasting pizza in the area. Thank you guys!
I miss Chicago! Very nice to be able to get GREAT food sent to our home here in Sandpoint, Idaho
Awesome Pizzas and Portillo's Beef
We have ordered the pizzas a number of times, but decided to try the beef sandwiches. As expected, they were awesome, the directions were especially clear on how to prepare them and the ingredients were delicious. My husband truly enjoyed his birthday this year! Thank you!
Great Pizza and especially the Italian Beef, can't beat it.
Offer additional incentive discounts for additional orders

Steak sandwhich and pizzas, awesome fathers day gift choice.
Awesome as Always!
Order several times a year & it gets better every time! Order is always perfect & delivered still frozen on the date expected!
Out of State Delivery
Sent a care package of Lou Malnatis Pizza and Portillos beef sandwich to friends who moved to Arkansas. They missed both so much and really enjoyed the pizza and beef!!! Reminded them what they miss and left behind. There are no good pizza joints or places to get a really good beef sandwich
We now live in Maine and this is our connection back to Chicago, nothing out here that we have found to compare.
Wonderful taste, smell and reminds us of Chicago. We do this numerous times a year.
Will still be a loyal customer
Pizza arrived a day sooner than promised, was not at home until late, pizza had thawed, we refroze them hope they will be fine. Have ordered several in past without any problems, never disappointed in the quality and taste in the past.
Arrived on time. Packed well. Pizzas a little small, but lots of beef. Everything delicious. And a nice treat for my away-from-Chicago son.
Lou Malnati's Pizza
Good value , arrived on time as promised
The beef sandwiches were wonderful, as was the pizzas. Brought back memories of being in Chicago. My husband and I went to Portillo's every Saturday !!
Super fast delivery
I placed two separate orders to Florida and both were received within 24 hours. I received confirmation of deliveries via email. Awesome!
The couple who rec'd the products were very pleased and enjoyed every morsel. I was also pleased with a perfect delivery. Thank you.
Ordered many times. Always perfect. Thank you.
Sent this to two bachelor sons in Phoenix who really appreciated and loved the beef and pizzas!!!! Great tasting...quick delivery and safely arrived
A wonderful reminder of the great food I grew up on. The pizzas were sooo good and the Italian beef kit was everything I was hoping it would be. Thanks for shipping the best food ever!
Better than at the restaurant
I sent a Pizza and Beef combo to my friend on Florida. Portillos and Lou Malnattis were her favorites when she lived in the Chicago area. She said they were even better than she remembered at the restaurants!
Best way to send a Taste of Chicago
This was not my first time sending out Tastes of Chicago to people who have moved away. I have also turned people on to the Great Tastes of Chicago who have never experienced real pizza and italian beef. What a great service you offer!
We grew up in Chicago and have lived in FL for over 30 years. We love the beefs and pizzas from Taste of Chicago!!!
Giving our kids a taste
We have been gone for 25 years. Our adult kids know there are few reasons to consider going back, now they understand what it takes.
Lou's for Parents
My parents were surprised and loved it. They lived in Chicago and now have moved to Arizona. The original pizza house in Lincolnshire was there Sunday night place. YES
Totally 100% satisfied! The food was fresh and tasty and worth every penny. I will be ordering again!
love this food !!!
This pizza is awesome , we recieved as a gift and we have ben purchasing them every since . the portillo's beef kit is wounderful too !!!!
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza Combo
delivered on time and was very pleased with everything.
taste of chicago
2 pizzas and Italian beef sandwich kit/ shipment was held up by weather, can't help that. was out of ice and starting to de-thaw. still good even after sitting in a warehouse.
Tastes just like it does in Chicago! The pizza is perfect and the Italian beef is actually better than it was when we had it in the Windy City. My family will never eat anything other than Lou's pizza.
Great food, easy ordering, delivered on time
One of the few reasons we hated leaving Chicago was Lou Malnatti's and Portillo's. These products are awesome.
Portillos Beef Kit 2 Sausage
Everything was perfect and delivered on time. Thank You
Curtis & Julie Dillman(Indianapolis,IL)
Pizza & Beef Sandwiches
What can be better than that! I used to live right across the street from a Portillo's (Tinley Park, IL) & was there at least once a week. As far as Lou Malnati's Pizza...it's ok, BUT IT'S CHICAGO PIZZA - we can't get good pizza here in NC! I would really rather see Fox's Pizza (Orland Park, Oak Lawn, Mokena) on here instead. But I'll take ANY Chicago pizza right now!
Happy for arrival.
I happened to order this for delivery during some of the worst winter weather Chicago has ever had. It was delayed, but I was kept informed by email. The $20 delivery fee was also waived, which was very much appreciated. It did finally make it to Phoenix and was enjoyed yesterday by all!
We are so happy to be in Nevada watching WGN talk about how cold it is there, while we enjoy the beef and pizza
beef gone bad and sausage gone bad
I was home when the order arrived on Dec. 31. I quickly put the pizza in the freezer and one of the 1 pound bags or beef in the fridge. That evening we enjoyed the other portion of beef. On Jan.3 we opened the other bag of beef and the meat tasted bad. We decided not to eat it and threw it away. Jan.4 we cooked one of the sausage pizzas and it was delicious. On Jan.10 we cooked the 2nd pizza and again the meat tasted bad. We threw the pizza away. My wife and I were very disapointed since we were looking forward to the treat. We are both from Chicago and love the food. This was a very expensive experience and we might not place an order again. Thank you for your time.
Portillos & Pizza
Portillo's and two sausage pizzas.
everything was on time sandwiches were great pizza was kind of stale
Same great food, speedy delivery
food we miss, craving satisfied
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's pizza
The Italian beef is awesome! I put it all in the crockpot on low to thaw it and heat it up. I love the pizza's! It tastes just like Lou Malnati's delivered it to us!! We used to order Lou Malnati's when we would visit our daughter in Chicago, but she moved to Thailand! Now we can order Lou Malnati's pizza again!!
Through the storm
Through the storm
Beef Great, Pizza, not so much
We have ordered many,many times before and as usual the beef was great, but this time, the pizza's were not up to the quality standards we have come to expect. The flavor of the sausage was not good, we did not get sick, but it did not taste like the Lou's sausage that we love.
My kids loved it. Brought memories of when they lived here.
Still the Best
Nothing in Arizona comes close to the taste of a real Italian Beef sandwich from Chicago
Great package for college kids
Sent this package to my daughter in college who misses the food she can get anytime in Chicago her and her friends love it and a major upgrade from college food
Great as always
None in California
We have only finished 1/2 of the order and the italian beef was excellent as I cook it slowly in a crock pot to let all the juices soak throughout the slices of meat. The outer crust was a bit dry and hard but it could have been overcooked by us as our oven usually takes longer than it says.
Best pizza & beef ever
Best pizza/Portilloscombination EVER. Love this food& how frozen it comes as well no matter how hot it is outside!!
Taste off Chicago food rocks!
Missing that food and know it comes to your door step...yumm!
Fernando (Myrtle beach,SC)
My son has already had one of the pizzas and one of the beef sandwiches - and said they were wonderful. And the Pixies are already gone. So no complaints at all - great food, delivered on time and in excellent condition.
We enjoyed the pizza's and Italian Beefs. Everything was very easy to prepare.
Portillo's Beef & Malnati's Pizza
We have not been able to find a decent beef sandwich or pizza since we moved to TX last year. This made the PERFECT birthday present for my husband that we could enjoy anytime at all. Thanks for memories of Chicago.
Delicious as always. However two packages of the peppers would be better. There are never enough for the second batch, which we don't use at the same time. Two packages of peppers would make it fantastic.

I have yet to try the ship to you service but since I grew up with these amazing eatery's I need to do it! The food is amazing now I hope the service is worth the price tag!
I've always been happy with your products and delivery. Thanks for keeping 'chi-town' flavors in my far away kitchen.
Tasty yumminess for Chicago ex-pats
My son recently graduated college and moved away from Chicago. Although he loves where he now lives, he misses all his Chicago favorites he grew up with, and was THRILLED with the pizza and Italian beef I sent him. A little taste of home for him; thanks for helping me make him happy!
My wife I miss Chicago and it's iconic foods. We still can't believe that food came in a box. It's like we sat down and ordered it in a restaurant. Blew out expectations away.
Delivery was as promised and I was informed all along with tracking info.
Alon Jeffrey(Grays Lake,IL)
home delivered food
the Portillo's Beef and Malnati's pizza were awesome as usual
Love Chicago pizza and Italian beef? So do we!
Two thumbs up! Package arrived in south Florida on time and still frozen. The pizzas and Italian beef were so good! You can close your eyes and imagine you are back in Chicago! Will definitely order again...perfect anniversary dinner!
This combo is so amazing that my husband and I think about it all day. Can't wait to dig in at supper!
We lived in Chicagoland over 60 years and since moving to Minnesota way up North, we order food we miss and you never fail us. Thanks
2lb beef and 2 pizzas
We are from Chicago and now Live in Florida and we look forward to our Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza Delivery each time we order
I gave this as a gift for a friend and her family who use to live in the Chicago area. They were beyond blessed and loved every last bite of it.
Friends going through a difficult loss said "Very thoughtful and delicious" "cure package" "awesome care package very much enjoyed" "delicious Chicago food" "true meaning of comfort food" "food is our language of love and we feel very loved"

Food from home
I send this to my sons who live in Texas and California. Have never had a problem with quality or delivery. Always a welcome treat of comfort food from "sweet home Chicago!"
Once again the food was excellent. It was shipped to friends who were missing Chicago.
I ordered this for an office party to honor some of our Chicago transplants. They loved it. It's great that everything you need for the meal is included.
The Italian beef and deep dish pizza brought me back 30 years to when we'd watch Star Trek every Friday night as a family with this delicious food!

The Best Food in Chicago
I purchased the beef & pizza combo so a friend of mine from New Zealand could taste what REAL pizza tastes like.. They were very impressed by both the pizza and the Italian Beef.. This is our Xmas eve dinner every year here in Houston.. A taste of HOME!
Taste of home
Purchased the combo pack for my parents for Christmas they are from Chicago and now live in southern Indiana where they don't have Italian beef and don't have a clue what good pizza is. They loved it! Delicious like being back home!
We ordered 2 pizzas and a beef kit and fed 4 adults, 3 kids and have enough left over for sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. Great value, delicious meal.
Wish it was a better experience
I ordered Beef and Pizza's for my family in Reno for the holidays and although delivered on time, the UPS driver dropped off the box at the office of my father's apartment building and nobody let him know that the box was there. The box sat for an extra day, everything thawed out and they were unable to eat any of it. I'm not sure how but I wish there was a slightly better system to ensure this doesn't happen. I order frequently for my family but may have to reconsider as I don't want this type of thing to happen again.
Jeffrey(Lake In The Hills,IL)
great delivery time
Good way yo deliver chicago goods out of state
Never a Disappointment
As always, a great product. My gift recipient loved the two Lou's pizzas and the Italian beef and all the fixin's. It has become a Christmas Eve tradition since they live in Florida now and miss all the great tastes of Chicago. Always arrives in perfect condition and on time.
Portillos Beef Kit 1 Cheese 1 Sausage
The above purchase did not arrive on time even with the additional shipping charges. It arrived after Xmas with no ice in the package. I know that David did call to let you know.
David & Jennifer Ortiz(Hollywood,FL)
Fantastic, a taste of home!
Birthday Feast Supreme
I bought the beef/pizza combo feast for my birthday and enjoyed every morsel with my family. Excellent!
Lost a bet on the Bears. They won great food!
As a Bear fan, I have a standing wager with a friend of mine from Georgia who happens to be a Packer fan. As you may know, they won so he won. Ugh...Switched up the prize and let him know how good we have it in Chicago...Chicago Deep Dish and a Chicago beef sandwich. Always a winning combination!
Have used your service several times and it has always been on time, fast and delicious
Taste of Home for sister in California
Sent this for my sisters birthday and thought she'd like a taste of home.
TASTE OF HOME
My sister absolutely loved the pizza and beef. She had a taste for some good Chicago Style Pizza the day it arrived and was absolutely thrilled with it.
Portillo Beef and Lou's pizza combo... We sent this as a thank-you gift to a family in Philly. We wanted to give them a little taste of famous Chicago food. They were thrilled!
the best in the world

Virginia Kirk(Downers grove,IL)
Everything arrived very fast and was packaged well. Directions for preparation were very easy to follow.
Portillos has the best Italian beef. Some of my family live in Illinois, and every time I come to visit I eat nothing but Portillos..lol. I am so happy that Tastes of Chicago has delivery. I loved the Pizzas as well, the only thing I don't like about the pizzas is there is too much cheese and I cannot order the pizzas with light cheese. Thanks!!
The Best of Chicago!
Beef and Pizza combo
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza Combo
Best Beef Sandwiches and Best Pizzas sent to Florida to my daughter to give her the best of Chicago.
pizza was delicious
My daughter was visiting her cousins in Seattle so as a thank you I sent the Beef and Pizza combo to her aunt and uncle to arrive while she was there. They were most grateful and are now properly hooked on Portillo's beef sandwiches (I had already introduced them to Malnati's pizza!). It makes a great gift and offers a little bit for everyone. Can not recommend enough.

The order arrived promptly and was well received!
Valentines Pizza and Beef
We have had Lou Malnati's sent to the four corners of U. S. ( Hawaii incl) over the last 8 years, and finally realised that we have accidentally started new family tradition. God Bless you Malnati's!!!

My son, who is just beginning medical school in Brooklyn, said the food was fantastic! Thank you.

portillos beef and pizza
Portillos Beef and 2 Lou Malnati's Pizza Combo
The Beeff is fantastic and translates well to eating at home. The 2 pizzas were disappointing. Not very large and were "lost in translation" from eating at Lou Malnati's--which has great pizza! Also, wish Sausage and Pepperoni was a choice.
Best gift ever
Care package from home. Since my daughter moved out to California she missed the great food we have here in Illinois, like she said nothing better than a care package with Portillo's and Lou Malnati's pizza.
Keeps me from missing Chicago!
As always, the food arrived on time and ready for eating! It is the next best thing to being back in Chicago.
Chi born - now lives in NYC
After an address/delivery mix up, I was kindly greeted and had a second pizza/italian beef gift sent to my son who will always sing the praises of Italian beef from Portillo's. It's the first place we stop when he comes into town. So thanks for your help and amending the delivery snafu!
It was great having chicago food delivered to my door. It was easy to cook and tasted like home.
Just received my third order of Italian Beef and Lou's pizzas. The quality and process have been very consistent. Excellent taste and delivery right on time.
Best delivery !!
Always a treat
sent these pizzas to my brother who is recovering from hip replacement surgery. Needless to say he enjoyed them immensely and is recovering so well he can now try to run the calories off!
Awesome as usual!
Didn't make it for Christmas.
Wanted to have it in Florida for Xmas but Fed X dropped the ball. The shipment didn't deliver until 12/27. Lou's is going to reship but it won't arrive until 1/3. Essentially 2 weeks to get to destination. Honestly expected better for over 100.00 bucks.
My friends had a loss in the family and were thrilled when pizza and beef from their old home town arrived during a difficult time. It was easy to reheat and arrived perfectly. Much better than a casserole ;-)
The Portillo's Beef was excellent as I remember.
Portillo's Beef & Lou Malnati's Pizza combo
My wife and I lived in the Chicago area for several years and grew accustom to the best beef sandwiches and pizza available anywhere. After moving to The Villages, Florida we found out those same treats are available via speedy delivery. What a wonderful treat for us and our friends that were unaccustom to Taste of Chicago delicacies. Love them!
