First Arizona Portillo's Opens Next Week in Scottsdale

Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, char-grilled Maxwell Street-style Polish sausages, cake shakes -- it can only be Portillo's, the Illinois-based restaurant chain in business since 1963 and beloved by Chicago transplants throughout the Valley.

And next week, Arizona gets its first one.

The 50th location of the largest privately owned restaurant company in the Midwest will open its doors at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 26, at 10574 North 90th Street in Scottsdale.

The 8,721-square-foot restaurant includes a patio and, like all Portillo's restaurants, will be filled with vintage memorabilia reflecting founder Dick Portillo's love of history -- especially Chicago history.

Portillo's will continue its Arizona expansion with a second location planned to open this summer at the Tempe Marketplace (Rio Salado Parkway and McClintock Drive) in Tempe. The Chicago-based Portillo's currently operates in three states.
