FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Chicago has made its way to Fort Wayne...with a lot of flavor added.

Portillo's Restaurant gave a sneak peek to the Fort Wayne community who signed up to taste their menu's "Famous Five."

Director of New Restaurant Operations, Jeff Deppe, said, "We just wanted to give the community a little taste of what we have to offer."

Contrary to the 'little taste' Deppe suggested, visitors flooded the lines and came out the restaurant's revolving doors with big smiles.

Connie Gumbel of Fort Wayne said, "Now I understand what all the hype is about."

With Italian sauage, fresh onion rings, milkshakes, and even a food truck to top off the experience, Portillo's brought the hype to Fort Wayne with extra sizzle.

The restaurant's grand opening in Fort Wayne is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5.
