Mmm.....Portillo's - Popular Hot Dog/Burger Joint May Be Opening in the Sloop!

520 W. Taylor (corner of NE Taylor and Clinton)
We've gotten a ton of emails on this topic, so safe to assume South Loop Chicago Hot Dog fans are crossing their fingers, the amazingly popular restaurant Portillo's may be opening up in the Sloop (via NBC Chicago):
Fans of Portillo's rejoice: a new restaurant may be opening in the South Loop. The chain applied for a building permit at 520 W. Taylor St. last week, according to city records. The restaurant would be the second location in the city. 
In April, the Oak Brook-based chain also applied for a permit in Gurnee, which is set to open in November. 
A request for comment from NBC Chicago to Portillo’s wasn’t immediately returned.
Seems pretty indicative that this is going to happen, but until it does...we will be drooling like homer:
