    Chicago to the max

    I have a kit to my aunt from Seattle. The moment she took a bite she became a bears fan.

    Portillos 8 beef kit

    I've been ordering this for years and the quality has recently gone down while the price has increased. The gravy now comes in bags (rather than the plastic containers) that leaked all over my fridge. At over $13 a beef, I no longer recommend this product

    Family Tradition!

    My father used to take us to Portillos when we visited Chicago as teens. My brothers and I live across the country so for Christmas he started shipping us the Italian Beef Kits. It became a Christmas tradition. Now that he's passed, we've carried on the tradition. I order kits for Thanksgiving Eve and Christmas Eve. My kids can't wait for Portillos and look forward to it every year. It's a Lineberry thing!

    Italian Beef Kit

    I have ordered kits multiple times. I cannot get Italian Beef or Portillos anywhere near me. They are so good,and worth every dollar. I will continue to order them.

    Excellent Food!

    I sent this to my dad and he absolutely loved it! He was born and raised in Chicago and loves his food. I have ordered other foods from Taste of Chicago, and the food is always delicious.
