Portillo’s restaurant coming to Denton

Chicago cuisine staple Portillo’s is planning an expansion into North Texas with many brand new eateries, including one in Denton.

The CEO of the growing chain — known for its Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches and cake shakes — recently told the Dallas Morning News that the company is planning to open about 20 new locations in North Texas over the next five years. The first Texas location will open this winter in Grandscape in The Colony.

At least one of those other 20ish locations will be in Denton County, a Denton city spokesman confirmed. Portillo’s has proposed a 7,700-square-foot restaurant in Rayzor Ranch, between the Cheddars and In-N-Out restaurants. It is still early in the process and there is no approval or construction timeline available. A Portillo’s spokesperson declined to comment.
