Portillo’s just launched its first-ever wedding catering package!

  • In the package, you can expect hot dogs, Italian beef, chicken tenders, crinkle-cut fries and onion rings, plus a cheese fondue fountain. Like a chocolate fondue fountain but Portillo's famous cheese sauce. (sounds heavenly!)
  • Not getting married in Chicago? Portillo’s is also offering a mail-order package for your wedding called Love at First Bite.

This may sound cheesy, but we finally mustard up the courage to ask you...will you cater Portillo's at your wedding?
