Hot Dog News
Chicago hot dogs are coming to Denton: Portillo’s, the fast-casual restaurant concept known for Chicago street food, is opening a location at Rayzor Ranch Town Center, at the corner of I-35 and University Drive.
According to a release, the location will open "by the end of the year."
It'll be the third Portillo's in the Dallas-Fort Worth market, following locations in The Colony and Allen, which just opened in early September.
The Denton location will feature a Southwest garage themed design in a 7,700 square-foot space, with seating for more than 170 inside plus 50 more seats on a seasonal outdoor patio. The location will also feature the must-have double drive-thru lanes to accommodate the many patrons getting hot dogs to go.
These have all become standard features in every DFW location so far.
“We’ve loved the amazing reception from fans across the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” says Portillo’s CEO Michael Osanloo. “Growing the DFW market is a clear priority for Portillo’s. We’ve opened successfully in The Colony and Allen, and will be in Arlington and Fort Worth by the end of the year. We can’t wait for Denton to be our fifth in the market, so we can bring our unrivaled street food to new and longtime fans across the region.”
They're known for their Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, burgers, and Chocolate Cake.
Founder Dick Portillo opened the first Portillo’s hot dog stand in Illinois in 1963. There are now more than 75 locations across 10 states.
