Portillo’s
2302 Tyrone Blvd. N, St. Petersburg, 630-954-3773
St. Pete residents can now transport themselves to the suburbs of Chicago in the vintage chain’s next location. Commuters have noted the building is close to completion, so let’s hope we can pick up our chocolate cake shake in the coming weeks.
