A brand new Portillo’s just opened right next to the most magical place on earth, Disney World! Just off Disney property and minutes south of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the ever-so-popular Portillo’s restaurant. A perfect place for families looking to get a break from the usual theme park food and try something different.
Portillo’s is relatively new to Florida with its first location opening back in 2016 in Brandon Florida. The new location, opening officially on January 10th, 2023 will mark the 5th Florida restaurant to open in the sunshine state.
While the name is new to Floridians and those from outside its Chicago home base, the name is well-known by fans of the hot dog and burger chain.
Portillo’s biggest claim to fame is its iconic Chicago-style hot dogs but the menu offers so much more.
“In 1963, Dick Portillo invested $1,100 into a small trailer to open the first Portillo’s hot dog stand in Villa Park, IL, which he called “The Dog House.” Years later, Portillo’s has become a brand synonymous with Chicago. In fact, we’re kind of a big dill– people say it’s not a real trip to Chicago unless you eat at Portillo’s. Fortunately, die-hard fans and first-timers alike have their choice of Portillo’s restaurants, as we’ve beefed up to more than 70 locations across several states.”
We recently checked out the new Kissimmee location. Vintage memorabilia and advertising decor fills a large well-lit space with plenty of table and booth seating.
The menu offers hotdogs, burgers, chicken, soups, salads, and desserts like cake and milkshakes. It’s easy to find something everyone in the family will enjoy.
“We’re known for our famous Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, chopped salad, cheese fries, homemade chocolate cake, and chocolate cake shake. Our Italian beef is slow-roasted for four hours, thinly sliced, and served on freshly baked French bread. Then, it’s dipped in hot gravy made with our homemade blend of seasonings that we’ve been perfecting for 50 years. Haven’t tried Portillo’s yet? Order an Italian beef, dipped with sweet or hot peppers (add mozzarella if you’re feeling cheesy), or a Chicago-style hot dog “dragged through the garden” and you’ll see what all the hype is about.”
