Portillo’s to open in Lake Buena Vista in March

Attention Foodies! Some fun news broke this morning for the Disney area. Have you heard of Portillo’s? I hadn’t until just now, but the food sounds pretty awesome. Here’s the announcement straight from their site!

Get ready for some delicious magic to cake shake its way to Lake Buena Vista. Portillo’s newest location, our third in the state of Florida, is set to open March 2, 2021.

We know the Orlando area only has fries for our Chicago-style hot dogs, famous Italian beef sandwiches, char-grilled burgers and homemade chocolate cake. Now, the wait is almost up.

The restaurant, located at the intersection of Palm Parkway and Daryl Carter Blvd, features a diner theme with rock ‘n roll elements such as an electric guitar ceiling treatment. It will officially open to the public at 10:30am on March 2. To celebrate the opening, we’ve created limited-edition location t-shirts that will be given to guests who sign up for our Birthday Club, while supplies last.

Can’t wait until March to satis-fry your Portillo’s cravings? Don’t worry! To give fans a preview of Portillo’s favorites, our Beef Bus will be in the area selling our famous Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, cheese fries and beverages in advance of the grand opening. Beef Bus team members will wear masks; guests are required to wear facial coverings as well. We will also mark 6-foot distances in line, so guests can maintain social distancing. The Beef Bus will begin operating starting January 21, 2021. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for hours and location.

We can’t wait to meat you. In the meantime, fans are invited to register for a chance to attend a sneak peek training meal prior to opening and receive updates on Portillo’s Lake Buena Vista location by signing up here.

There you have it! Are you excited for the new Portillo’s?
