Portillo’s Celebrates National Hot Dog Week with Pokey’s Pals Contest and Free Delivery Blog Title

Hot dog it’s one of our favorite weeks of the year, and we have SO many ways to relish in the joy of our iconic hot dogs this week. 


Meet Our Mascot: Pokey

First, let us introduce you to Pokey - our mascot! Pokey was the name of the beloved dog that was owned by our founder Dick Portillo, and she inspired the original logo that we use today! She likes making friends, supporting Chicago’s sports teams, and dislikes ketchup. 

Pokey needs a pal, so we're also unleashing an opportunity for you and your furry best friend to be in the spotlight.
