So, anyone in the Chicagoland area should know about portillos. Well, I was in the presence of omnis and had to make a stop there. I was going to get fries but no doubt they were fried in animal based oils. I then saw they had a meatless category on their menu and got excited. The only problem was that two out of their three meatless sandwiches were tuna and halibut, and the vegetable sandwich had mozerella (contains rennet) on it! Is there no place my eating habits can call home?<br><br><a href="http://www.portillos.com/assets/pdfmenu/B41B6A736CEE49449575DC544F23ECF1.pdf" target="_blank">Portillos Menu</a>

Do you live in Chicago?? That's one big vegan friendly city! Are you having problems finding places to eat?

Randa, what part of the metro are you in? I've been all over, from way up in Winnetka, down to South Holland and Joliet. Only once have I thought I might starve (and that was at some freaky steakhouse we took my Grandma to).

Thanks Fadaway and I have not heard of portillios since I lived in the chicagoland area myself. I would just ask for no cheese and ask if you can have a veggie sandwhich and whatever you can have.

I went there for lunch once with co-workers and I got the veggie sandwich without cheese. It was pretty good.<br>
Where do you live? I'm in the NW suburbs.
