My friend Tom and I had a couple of Portillo's signature menu items recently.  He had the Char-grilled Maxwell Street Polish Dog and I had the equally-cleverly named "Hot Dog".

Despite our "eat in" visits we both received our orders in paper bags.  No problem.  The happy, bold red & white stripes shouted fast food goodness and seemed to beckon us to explore what was inside.

The Polish dog is grilled and served with mustard and grilled onions.  As you can see, they SERVE it with onions.  You can barely see the dog.  It was juicy and very flavorful, just like it looks.

My hot dog combo, complete with a side of cheese sauce for crinkle cut french fry dipping, looks good enough to eat wrapped!

The dog itself, shown above in its standard configuration, includes mustard, relish, chopped onions, sliced tomato, kosher pickle and "sport peppers".  The dog was beefy and salty and peppery - everything a proper Chicago dog should be.

All in all, we were quite satisfied with Portillo's.  If you find yourself in Chicago, or near the new one in Tempe, AZ, it's worth a stop.
