The expanding hot dog chain Portillo’s is looking to soon open an Orlando location at Waterford Lakes, according to recent reporting in The Orlando Business Journal. The official address will be at 315 N Alafaya Trl, replacing the former Duffy’s Sports Grill.
The Business Journal’s reporting hinges on Orange County documents which allegedly outline plans to “demolish the existing Duffy’s Sports Bar and construct a…Portillo’s restaurant with a drive-thru on 1.86 acres”
What Now Orlando reached out to representatives to gather more information about this exciting new development in the central Florida food and beverage landscape, but did not receive responses by time of publication.
Readers unfamiliar with the brand can expect a classic American fast-casual concept with a strong Chicago influence, serving hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, ribs, philly cheesteaks, salads, and pasta.
No opening date has yet been announced.
