The first stop on our American vacation was to visit the world famous Portillo’s in Vernon Hills.

A truly unique and exciting experience where the food is cooked fresh, ordered over a mic  is incredibly cheap and unbelievable in flavour.

The restaurant is split, grill one side with Italian on the other with burgers, dogs and dipped Italian beef sandwiches each as popular as one another.

A super soft roll, smash burger, onion, pickle and tomato (no ketchup) and a top of America cheese to taste. Perfect
