When you've got an area made up of transplanted Illinoisans, you've got to deliver a taste of home.

For many who used to call the Land of Lincoln home (before deciding that they'd had more than enough of our Illinois winters), Chase Field in Phoenix will be providing a much-needed flashback: Portillo's.

From the Daily Herald:

Oak Brook-based Portillo's, known for its Chicago-style hot dogs, caters to the nostalgic baseball fan with traditional offerings such as a variety of hot dogs, Italian beef and more. Portillo's has been a Chicago staple since opening in 1963 and expanded into Arizona in 2013 opening locations in Scottsdale and Tempe.

"We're excited to expand our footprint in the Valley by partnering with a world-class organization like the D-backs," said Portillo's CEO Keith Kinsey. "We can't wait to serve our food to all of the D-backs fans throughout the season."
