We know, we know: it’s been a long time coming. You've made us feel like a pretty big dill by peppering us with requests to open in Peoria.
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 Peoria – we know we’ll fit right in. We'd love to see you all when we open in 2018, and 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.
