Just Like Home
I am originally from Chicago. I moved to Memphis back in 1989 and have longed for the delights of hometown food. I was really pleased with the quality of Portillo's Beef. The food was fresh as if I purchased it from the restaurant here in town. Thank you for the memories!!
Keith From Memphis, TN
Long time Dick Portillo Fan
I first became familiar with Dick Portillo's offerings back in the '60's when he started out in the wagon parked in the Zayre's parking lot on North Avenue in Addison. I took my boys there after little league games and it was the highlight of their day, even more than their game. Now they are all grown and send me the Portillo's Beef kit here in Texas on a regular basis. I am very grateful for the service and find the product just as good as if served in one of the restaurants. Keep up the good work! Nick N. Fort Worth, TX
Nick Nicholson From Fort Worth, TX
I was born and raised in chicago and moved to georgia a few years ago. What I miss the most is the food.It is great to be able to go online and order my favorite italian beefs..TASTES LIKE I'M BACK HOME AGAIN...LOVE THEM!!!!
just like home
Ex-Chicagoan who enjoys the great pan pizza, Chicago style beef and of course the Chicago dog. A day after craving these foods they arrive at our home on the west coast, and I feel I'm back home in sweet Chicago.
The kind of meal you dream of when you've been away from Chicago awhile.
loved it
My husband is from Indiana and loves your food so much
More than satisfied!
Delivery was so speedy. My friend cried when she got it! Her family was thrilled and said it tasted as good as they remembered.
Italian beef
Fantastic Italian beef. Great service.
like I remember
This kit brings a bit of my home town flavor to me in Pittsburgh, can't get beef sandwiches like the kit provides here....
Always delicious!!
This product was delivered not only on-time, but actually one day early. And it's always delicious for a family of four. Never stop ordering this!
Portillo's Italian Beef
Beef is exceptional, much like good pizza, Italian Beef is virtually non-existent here in Alabama. I would like to request that you offer the ability to purchase extra rolls for the beef, as 4 per tub is just not quite enough.... 6 or 8 per tub would be perfect. Thanks - Craig
Discounts please
I would buy more if there was a loyalty, frequent buyer, or referral discount.
Excellent gift for new parents
Sent to help celebrate a new addition to the family. A much appreciated gift by mom and dad as they embark on their new roles. Portillo's not available in Michigan and the kids enjoyed having a special treat.
My husband and I LOVE Italian beef. Unfortunately we live in Florida. When we come home we pig out on the food and it's fantastic to know that I can still get the product shipped to me. Helps keep me from getting to home sick.
Tastes of Chicago always delivers!
We use Tastes of Chicago 4 or 5 times a year. Shipment always arrives on time and in great condition.

Our delivery
My Yuletide order of the Portillo's Italian beef kit arrived in a timely manner, however it seemed that the bag with the dry ice had popped and small pieces of the ice were all through the box. The top of one of the gravy containers was broken, but as it was still frozen nothing had come out. I think that maybe the kit needs a little more padding or something as this happened last year or the year before as well. Still, really looking forward to enjoying it on Christmas Eve. It has become a tradition.
Kevin From Coral Springs, FL
Out of state Family wanted Portillos
My brother lives in Kansas and loves Portillos; so for his birthday I sent him an order. He was estatic over his gift! I heard about this on the Eric & Kathy Show 101.9 FM--I never knew this was an option! I ended up sending this to my older brother in California as well...they love Portillos, but who doesn't really?
RF From Joliet, IL

Love these Beef's
We love the Portillo's Italian Beef's. They travel very well!!
JT From Gypsum, CO
Better packaging needed
The taste of the Italian beef was excellent. Easy to make, but more rolls should be included. The only issue we had was that one of the gravy tubs was cracked from the top down. Thankfully the gravy was still frozen, so we didn't have any spillage.
Happy Minnesota Family
My relatives who relocated to MN from Chicago, were very excited to receive the Portillos Beef kit! To quote their thank you: "Yes ma'am, that's some plate-licking perfection :-)"
Roz From Chicago, IL
Great gift
We love to order from these guys. As ex-pats from Chicago we get homesick for pizza, hot dogs, and Italian beef. There is no shortage of incredible food in Los Angeles, but whenever we go to Chicago we tend to plan our visits around our favorite foods. Being able to order from here we have introduced so many people to what real good food tastes like. We order for ourselves and for gifts. The food always arrives at the right time, is perfectly packaged, has directions are easy and accurate, and best of all- tastes so delicious! When you open your door and the UPS guy has that box from Lou Malnati's it just makes you feel super happy and not quite so homesick.

The bread you can't beat! The flavorful beef & au jus is just to die for! Add some Mozzarella Cheese & you have yourself a perfect sandwich! Mmmmmmmmmmm! I used to live across the street from Portillo's (Tinley Park, IL) & I was there at least once per week - maybe twice! Since we've moved....I'M HAVING WITHDRAWS!!!! Thanks to Tastes Of Chicago now we can still get it!
Kimberly From Cullowhee, NC
Italian Beef was excellent however, buns did not turn out well and green peppers were mushy. Had to run to store and get fresh bread and green peppers to salvage meal.
Dan From Highlands Ranch, CO
We were very pleased with the quality, price and delivery of the Portillo's italian beef kit we ordered. Everything arrived perfectly packaged, labeled with easy to follow directions and came out perfectly. There was more than enough meat for 8 sandwiches, the rolls were baked up very nicely, the peppers and giardiniera delicious. Will definitely order again. Moved away from Chicago 18 years ago and miss Portillo's! This is the next best thing to being there!
Ellen From Hayward, WI
Super fine,
Even though our team lost, the dinner was a winner!

Italian Beef at Its Best
Great package as always
Beyond great!
My shipment was delayed due to a winter storm here in South Carolina. I was sure the Italian beef would be ruined. When my husbands gift arrived, it was so well packed for shipment everything was in perfect condition. My husband is a native of Chicago and was so pleased and surprised to have a taste of home. We will purchase again!
Melissa From Hartsville , SC

KES From Atlanta, GA
Father's Day Gift
I sent this to my Father for Father's Day and it was a huge hit. He grew up in Chicago and loves the Italian Beef. It was great. It came when it said it would, was packaged great and tasted great.
Dawn From FL
Better than the Memory!
My daughter had a birthday delivery of Portillo's Italian Beef to her Boston home. She willingly shared it with several friends who now appreciate and understand her excitement. I can't believe that she shared her prize package, nor can I believe that one guy had lived and schooled in Chicago for a year and never had even tried Italian Beef! OMG!
Just as Expected!
Rho From Chico, CA
Happy Father's Day from home
sent Dad some Portillo's beef for Fathers Day in Alabama.Made his month.

It was great, I just needed more giardiniera, I loved the roast beef, and my wife couldn't have picked a better birthday present!
tim From Prescott Valley, AZ
Great gift
I ordered this for my son for Father's Day. He and his family enjoyed it and reminded him of his trip to Chicago a few years back.
italian beef
although the beef wasn't dry and tasteing like cardboard, like the last order, it just isn't like any I.B. sandwichs we had growing up in Chicago. The bread although tasty, becomes mush when gravy is added. We will eventually try your pizza and see if that brings back any memories? Thank you for making our 1st order correct!
Daniel Grace From Bradenton, FL
Just like the real thing
Tastes just like the real thing!I feel like I'm in Chicago! I wish they offered good customer coupons, I ordered 3 beef kits last week and couldn't get a coupon code, when spending $240 at one time it would be nice for some little customer appreciation discount. But, the food is fantastic!
Jen From Windsor, CO
Great choice.

As Tasty as Ever
Not the first time we've had the Italian Beef, which is why we keep ordering it! Wonderful lean beef, great broth and the peppers just add to the whole experience. Rolls hold up well to the broth and get nice and chewy when soaked.

Sweet Home Chicago
Really enjoyed this Chicago beef. I live near a Navy base and most of the sailors were trained at Great Lakes and the ones I've spoken with really miss Chicago food as a whole and Portillos beef specifically. How about a franchise out here on the left coast. Everything was great, thanks.

Thought this would be more difficult but pleasantly surprised-easy to make and delicious
The Super Bowl party everyone wants to be at!

Fabulous Italian Beef!
Portillios Italian Beef with all the fixings was my choice for my birthday dinner and it was fabulous!!!
Robert From Lynchburg, TN
We've been fans of Portillo's Italian beef sandwiches for a long time, and looked forward to enjoying them again. However, the quality of the beef in our order was very disappointing. It was fatty, full of gristle, and reminded us of low-quality fast food chain meat. The gravy, bread, and peppers were all good, but the beef was not up to their usual standards.

Richard Williams From Cumming, GA
Great reminder of home
I was watching the travel channel and suddenly became home sick. I realized how much I missed the variety of food that Chicago has. As a native south sider, I thought about how much I missed foods like gyros and Italian beef. Needless to say, I purchased the pizza and beef combo. I was so excited, when it arrived, I went to work immediately. I followed the cooking instructions listed online for the beef and everything came out perfect. I immediately went back to my days of visiting Portillo's in Alsip and Oaklawn. I would definitely recommend this pack to anyone that gets a littl home sick. You will not be disappointed. Now if I can only get Portillo's chopped salad and lemon poppyseed muffin delivered!

So glad they ship!
Have received several of the kits as a care package from my mom and we were very impressed with the quality. Followed the directions exactly - almost like a ritual. We can't get anything like this in Florida - certainly not the beef, but not even the bread or Giardinara.

My childhood
We had the Italian beef at an friend from Chicago. My wife started crying. The snadwiches reminded her of her childhood in Niagara Falls NY. Even the rools were as she remembered them. Needless to say we are now fans and sending kits to her sisters.

Pay up!
Every year I beat my boss beefs for cheesesteaks, and every year I pay up. One of these years the bears are going to have a better season than the Eagles! At least I know my boss is getting delicious beefs!
Gerry From NC
I live in NY where there is no shortage of good food. The Portillo's sandwiches are amazing. You can't get something like this just anywhere. I love that you can mail order food. If in your travels you find something you like, if it's popular enough there's a good chance you can find it online. There pizzas are pretty good too. I ordered two with the sandwiches. I still prefer getting a fresh pie here in NY. If you live somewhere that doesn't have good pizza these are great.
Will From NY
just like when I was a kid..
I've ordered from here several times and sent it to my brother in Colorado. This time I was visiting from Texas and was able to share in the feast. I just closed my eyes and we were back home again at my Ma's house eating off TV trays with her! Thanks guys..I'll be back!

Italian Beef
I purchased an Italian Beef kit and it was delicious my family really enjoyed it. I was born and raised in Chicago. I join the MILTARY and have been moving around a lot but there's one thing I miss and will never forget and that's Portillo Italian Beefs I only wish we had one in Columbia Sc, until we do I just have to order another kit. Keep up the good work!!
Jeffery From Columbia , SC
Just like being at home in Chicago
Portillos Italian Beef sandwich "kit" exceeded my expectations. The sandwiches tasted exactly as they do in the restaurant. My only complaint is the sweet peppers sent were not split into 2 packages like everything else. The 2nd pound of beef in my freezer will be topped with my attempt at pepper recreation. I ordered this as a Surprise for my husband for Father's Day, but truth be told, it was really for me.
Alexis From Mount Pleasant, SC
Beef is good, additives were too hot
I like hot spicy foods - I use jalapenos on a lot of different foods. But I ordered this without realizing it was "hot", and when we made it, was a bit disappointed that it was like that. I was thinking more along the lines of Philly Cheesesteak style. But I've never had the original, so this is all I had to go on.
Steve From Suffolk, VA
Family favorite
Born and raised in Chicago and Northwest Burbs, Enjoyed the greatest foods our Cities had to offer, and I and my family can still enjoy all the best tastes. Thank you for Tastes of Chicago
Tonia From CA
Great value.

Best Sandwich Ever!!
We have ordered these sandwiches 3 times now. Two times for ourselves and once as a gift. LOVE them! All four of us agree that this is the best sandwich we have ever eaten. We had half of the sandwiches last weekend during the Bucs game and are saving the other 4 for the SuperBowl as another special treat. Great product. Will order again and again.
Sara From Apollo Beach, FL
Rating for Portillo Beef sandwich.
I have purchased Portillo Beef several times since I moved to Sn Antonio Texas. I really miss Chicago food. I have not found a beef sandwich as good as Portillo in Texas Period. Keep up the good work and I will continue to buy Portillos Beef sandwiches!!!

Birthday sandwiches
We send portillos and Lou's out to our daughters family for birthdays. One day my six year old granddaughter asked her mom for birthday sandwiches. My daughter was puzzled about what she wanted. Finally she figured out she wanted portillos beef. They have become a request to get a taste of Chicago.

Product arrived on time and I confess, it was so delicious, I ate four of the 8 sandwiches (froze the ingredients for the other 4) within 36 hours! Was like being at Portillo's, the taste was superb. I just defrosted the other half of the order (only a week later) and I am sure the next four will be gone in two days. All items, even the bread exceptional. Highly recommend.
