Portillo’s Chicago-Style Hot Dog Video Food Review

by | Dec 15, 2016

It’s the yardstick by which all other Chicago-style hot dogs are measured. In our video food review of Portillo’s Chicago-style hot dog, we take a look at what goes into making this classic hot dog. We’ll inspect the toppings, the bun, and the hot dog itself. Then, we’ll take it for a taste-test drive to see why people like this hot dog so much. And we ask the question: Is this pickle too big for this hot dog?

Portillo’s is a chain of such stature and reputation that, for many, it represents a standard within Chicago cuisine. In our review, we take a fair and honest look at Portillo’s signature hot dog and consider what it means to the iconic Chicago-style hot dog and whether it could be better.
