Get excited, Illini, another Chicago favorite is coming your way

The following appeared today as a full-page ad in The Daily Illini. Click here to view the special ad we ran in the News-Gazette. Please share this with your friends and family in Champaign!

Dance your buns off, Illini. Portillo’s is coming to town!

We know, we know: it’s been a long time coming. You've been peppering us with requests to open in Champaign for years. You made us feel like a big dill, so we couldn’t bear to keep this announcement a secret any longer.

If you’ve never been to Portillo’s, we’d relish the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We started as a small hot dog stand outside Chicago in 1963 and we've grown to serve the most delicious Italian beef sandwiches, Chicago-style hot dogs, char-grilled burgers, fresh salads, cheese fries, and of course, our world famous chocolate cake. We think you’ll agree that our food truly cuts the mustard.

We're looking forward to our new home in Champaign -- just like our famous former Chicagoan friend. We'd lovie to see you all when we open in 2017. Frankly, we can't wait! Until then, sign up below for construction updates and a chance to attend a sneak peek training meal prior to opening.

From,

Your Friends at Portillo’s
