I realize that hotdogs and blogging go hand-in-hand, but I don’t mind being cliche. One of my favorite spots to get food is at and Portillo’s. I grew up in Elmhurst, near the original location. I think I can vaguely recall the house-shaped trailer. You can take the boy out of the west suburbs, but you can’t the west suburbs out of the boy.

Among the facts that I didn’t know until I read the Portillo’s Widipedia entry was this: until the early 90’s, there was a franchise in Tokyo that licensed the Portillo’s name. Can you imagine eating a Portillo’s hotdog in Tokyo? There are also locations in Moreno Valley and Buena Park, California. The folks in Merrillville, Indiana also have a location of their own. Good to know when you’re on the road.
