The Portillo’s in Orlando is getting closer to opening, but we still need a little more time to make sure our restaurant is perfect for all of our loyal fans. We will not be opening on March 23rd, and we aren’t prepared to announce a new opening date at this time. As the first building to open on brand new development, there are a few more items on our to-do list before we can welcome everyone to our beautiful restaurant.
