Known for its hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, and chocolate cake, Portillo's dates from 1963, when Dick Portillo opened the first Portillo's hot dog stand in Villa Park, which he called "The Dog House." Years later, Portillo's has grown to include restaurants in more than 50 locations across several states.
