Avondale will soon have a flavor of Chicago in town.
Portillo’s, the fast-casual restaurant concept known for its menu of Chicago-style favorites, is scheduled to open in Avondale for its latest Valley location.
The location will signify the third restaurant in Arizona with spots already in Scottsdale and Tempe. The Avondale location will be at Park 10 off McDowell Road.
Portillo’s also has a smaller establishment at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
“Since our first location in Arizona that opened in 2013, Portillo’s has continued to build a strong and loyal fan base across the Phoenix-area,” said Michael Osanloo, CEO of Portillo’s. “Our team is excited to expand to the modern city of Avondale and make a home in their vibrant retail scene.”
The restaurant will include a diner-themed interior drawing decor inspiration from the 1950s and 1960s. The 9,000-square-foot restaurant will include seating for more than 200 guests, an outdoor patio and a double-lane drive-through.
Patrons will be able to enjoy a variety of Portillo’s classic menu items, including Chicago-Style Hot Dogs, Famous Italian Beef, char-grilled burgers, fresh salads, and Portillo’s Famous Chocolate Cake.
