Portillo’s is debuting a new menu item at restaurants across the country and it’s a bit different from the Chicago-style staples the chain is known for.
The fast-casual restaurant chain will now offer a “Rodeo Burger,” just in time for summer.
The classic 1/3-pound char-broiled burger on a brioche bun topped with bacon, red onion, onion rings, melted American cheese and Portillo’s “tangy BBQ sauce.” The bacon is the newest element to the burger that has Portillo’s telling customers to “saddle up.”
According to the company, it’s a new, thicker and crispier bacon.
“Who doesn’t love bacon? We already had good bacon, but now it’s even better,” Garrett Kern, Portillo’s vice president of strategy and culinary, said in a statement. “We’ve also got one of the best burgers out there. Top it with our own barbecue sauce, our amazing onion rings and this delicious new bacon. Our team members already love it and can’t wait for both our loyal fans and new guests to rush in and try it.”
The new burger is already available in restaurants and for online ordering or delivery through the chain’s app.
