A Chicago-based restaurant chain made TripAdvisor's 2019 list of the best fast casual restaurants in the country, the travel site announced Tuesday.
Based on a full year of TripAdvisor reviews and high ratings, Portillo's was ranked fifth in the fast-casual category in the annual Travelers’ Choice Awards.
"This is a go-to place to try Chicago cuisine: Italian beef or a Chicago style dog," TripAdvisor diners said, according to the site.
Here are the Top 5 restaurants in the category that "offer high-quality meals at a great value to diners on the go":
1. Earl of Sandwich – Orlando, Florida
2. Shake Shack – Miami Beach, Florida
3. In-N-Out Burger – Los Angeles, California
4. The Taco Stand – La Jolla, California
5. Portillo's Hot Dogs – Chicago, Illinois
Portillo's beat out Five Guys, Tacos el Gordo, Teddy's Bigger Burgers, Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Kewpee Hamburgers, ranked sixth through tenth.
Winners were determined by "factoring in the quantity and quality of reviews" over a 12-month period.
