Portillo's reveals plans for location in the River City

A Chicago favorite could be coming to Peoria.

Portillo's revealed their plans to open a location in the River City earlier this morning.

The construction of the restaurant is still subject to the approval of the Developer's Special Service Area by Peoria City Council, however.

If approved, the 9,000 square foot restaurant will be located near the Westlake Shopping Center and will include seating for more than 200 guests.

"A location in Peoria has been an integral part of our plan for growth in Central Illinois," says the chain's CEO, Keith Kinsey.

There's still no word on when the new location will open.

This isn't the first time Portillo's has set up shop in Central Illinois. Earlier this year, a location was opened in Normal.
