About Us

Starting in 1963 with $1,100 and a dream, Dick Portillo opened the first Portillo’s hot dog stand in Villa Park, IL, which he called “The Dog House.” Fast-forward over 50 years, and Portillo’s stretches beyond its beloved Chicagoland to become a national brand with its first Iowa location opening in 2019. The brand is best known for its menu of Chicago-style favorites; including hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, char-grilled burgers, salads, and its famous chocolate cake.
