About Portillo’s Restaurant
In 1963, Dick Portillo opened his first restaurant. He and his brother Frank ran The Dog House and a hot dog stand out of an old trailer. After a struggle, they began to make money and opened the first Portillo’s in 1967. In 1970, Portillo opened his second location. Since then, the restaurant has grown, primarily in Illinois. Portillo is still looking for new places to expand and introduce customers to its Chicago-style cuisine!
