PHOENIX – Popular hot dog chain Portillo’s has set the date for the grand opening of its fourth Arizona spot, the latest in Phoenix’s West Valley.

The Chicago-based company announced in a post Monday the new site in Glendale will open April 27 near Arrowhead Towne Center at 75th Avenue and Bell Road.

Customers will be welcomed inside starting at 10:30 a.m.

Portillo’s other three Arizona sites are also in the Valley – Avondale, Scottsdale and Tempe.

The site will feature a diner theme and 1950s-60s décor.

“We’re bun-believably excited to bring unrivaled Chicago street food … to the northwest portion of the Valley,” the food retailer said in the online statement.

Besides Chicago-style hot dogs, the chain is best known for its Italian beef sandwiches, chargrilled hamburgers and chocolate cake shake.

Portillo’s debuted Illinois in 1963 and arrived in Arizona in 2013 to much fanfare.

Hiring is underway for the Glendale eatery. Applications are available online.
