We couldn’t have a legitimate burger review website that focuses on Chicago, without including Portillo’s. I’ll try not to be biased towards this local treasure but cannot guarantee anything.
The Char-Broiled Burger from Portillo’s is hands down a classic. For just $4.65 you’ll get a 1/3 pound beef burger topped with mayo, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, and ketchup. Basically, everything a traditional burger should have. Then there’s the flavor. I’m not really sure how they do it, but the flavor of this burger is amazing. Those of you who have enjoyed it know exactly what I’m talking about.
