It will officially open to the public at 10:30am on March 2. To celebrate the opening, Portillo’s has created limited-edition location t-shirts that will be given to guests who sign up for their Birthday Club, while supplies last.

  • For those eager fans who can’t wait until March to satisfy their Portillo’s cravings, the restaurant will be giving a preview of Portillo’s favorites via their Beef Bus which will be in the area selling their famous Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, cheese fries and beverages in advance of the grand opening.
  • Beef Bus team members will wear masks; guests are required to wear facial coverings as well. Portillo’s will also mark 6-foot distances in line, so guests can maintain social distancing.
