The purpose of this website is to convince Dick Portillo's Restaurant Group to open a location in Rockford, Illinois. Portillo’s began in a small trailer that ran a garden hose for water. The original hot dog stand has expanded to many locations in Illinois, Indiana, California and now in Arizona but not here in Rockford !! Portillo's won so many Silver Platter awards (the "Oscars" of the food industry) that the company retired from competition for 5 years to give others a chance. Portillo’s is a must-try for the best Hot Dogs, Italian Beef, Maxwell Street Polish, Tasty Burgers, Fresh Salads and more. We encourage you to check out Portillo's Website and Menu for yourself. Please Help Bring Portillo's to Rockford by Signing the Petition Below. Please leave your Full Name and E-mail, City that you reside in and any comments that you would like to send to Portillo's to convince them to open a Portillo's location here in the Rockford Metro Area. And tell your friends, neighbors and co-workers to sign the petition too.Your e-mail address will not appear online. Thank You For Your Support.
