Chicago-Based Portillo’s Opens in Scottsdale

Popular Chicago-based, fast casual restaurant Portillo’s will open its new Scottsdale location at 90th Street and Shea at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 26, 2013.


Portillo’s features an extensive menu including their famous Italian beef, Italian sausage, burgers, chicken sandwiches, specialty salads and a renowned chocolate cake.

The 8,721 square foot restaurant features a fun, inviting and unique atmosphere adorned with 40‘s, 50‘s and 60‘s themed memorabilia reflecting Dick Portillo’s love of history – especially Chicago history.

The restaurant has seating for 190 guests indoors and 80 outdoors and employs 200 full- and part-time employees. The restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., daily except Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Portillo’s will continue its Arizona expansion with a second location this summer in Tempe, at the Tempe Marketplace at Rio Salado Parkway and McClintock Drive.

Portillo’s currently operates in three states and has more than 4000 employees. The Portillo Restaurant Group currently operates 36 Portillo’s Hot Dogs, nine Barnelli’s Pasta Bowl units and three Honey-Jam Cafe units. In addition, the restaurant group includes a full service Italian restaurant, Luigi’s House, featuring Julian’s Piano Bar, a catering division known as Portillo’s Home Kitchen, a shopping plaza in Bolingbrook, IL and a shopping plaza in Elgin, IL. The Portillo Restaurant Group will mark their 50th year this coming spring, and continues to grow. For more information, visit the company’s website at

    I loved the food, best of all are the employees, making your experience great. Great beef unlike what is typically found in AZ.
    The fellow customers are kind and patient with the great demand, great value for the price. Finally a great place for hungry families with taste and value. Welcome to Scottsdale, Thank you for taking the chance.

    We have eaten at the Crystal Lake, IL Barnelli’s and Portillo’s. GREAT places to eat out. Wish they would look into putting a location in the new Phoenix Mart being built in Casa Grande, AZ
    See the Phoenix Mart information on the web. Very interesting,
