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.

Just ate there.  Chi Dog, Italian beef sandwich, fries, and Choc cake.  Dog was soggy and had traditional relish not the famous bright green relish.  Italian beef was average.  Fries and cake were great.  Resteraunt was bright and lively.  Overall expeience was goood.  Food was just OK.

Chicao style dogs and chocolate cake shakes are a must.

Saw their commercial last night and found it a bit offensive. At first I  thought it was an ad for stalking.. It's in bad taste.

Never thought I'd hear myself say that I wish Portillo's wasn't opening here.  I dig 'em, but I fear for a couple of independents that are just as awesome, if not more so.
