Love Portillo’s chocolate cake? Who doesn’t? If you’re fiending for a slice, next Thursday is your lucky day. On April 6, Portillo’s will be celebrating 54 years of serving delicious food, and just for the occasion, customers get a special treat.
Purchase one slice of chocolate cake for only 54 cents in honor of Portillo’s 54th birthday. The special is available at all locations while supplies last, limited to one slice per customer. Sounds like a pretty great deal.
What makes Portillo’s chocolate cake so amazing? It has two layers of rich chocolate cake topped with thick layers of creamy chocolate frosting. It’s no secret that the “secret ingredient” is mayo to create its smooth texture. Portillo’s chocolate cake has definitely become a staple in the Chicagoland area. It’s also given out for free on birthdays and is shipped in kits for people to assemble at home.
Founded in 1963 in Villa Park, IL, Dick Portillo opened his namesake location to serve Chicago-style hot dogs.
