Find these iconic Italian beef sandwiches and hot dogs in The Colony.
Texas’ first Portillo’s Italian beef sandwich and hot dog restaurant opens at 4 p.m. Jan. 9, 2023 in The Colony.
This 60-year-old restaurant’s expansion from its home city of Chicago into the Dallas suburbs was one of the most tantalizing food stories of 2022. There’s even a Facebook page devoted to tracking the restaurant’s progress.
It was late 2022 that the company expected to open its doors in Grandscape, the master development near Nebraska Furniture Mart near State Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollway. Construction delays pushed the restaurant’s debut into 2023, which means it’s now on our list of most exciting new restaurants opening in Dallas-Fort Worth this year.
