Something’s blowing into Florida from the Windy City, and we’re not just talking ’bout the cooler weather!
You midwesterners will know how exciting this news is, as the beloved Chicago-style restaurant chain has just announced it will be opening its third location in Florida right next to Disney World!
Portillo’s is a household name in the north, famous for its Italian Vienna beef sandwiches, char-broiled burgers, and Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dogs served with the traditional poppy seed bun, neon green relish, celery salt, tomato, onion, with or without sport peppers, and mustard…BUT NO KETCHUP!! (Well, since we’re not in Chicago, they’ll make an exception and give you some ketchup if you’re reeaaally nice!)
Even though their grilled offerings are usually the star of the show, Portillo’s also has some amazing freshly prepared salads, like the delicious Chopped Salad which has tiny ditalini noodles, crispy bacon, gorgonzola crumbles, and giant hunks of roasted chicken! It’s so good that you wouldn’t even know it’s healthy, well moderately…
The biggest draw to Portillo’s though has to be its Chocolate Cake, which you can buy whole or by the slice at their restaurants!
And under the category of things you didn’t know you needed in your life until this moment, file away the Chocolate Cake Milkshake, because, um, yeah, it’s seriously one of the most delicious milkshakes on the planet! It’s literally like drinking a piece of their moist, chocolatey cake through a straw!
The new Portillo’s will be located on the intersection of Palm Parkway and Daryl Carter Blvd in Lake Buena Vista — about a 10-minute drive from Disney Springs! So, not too far away!
