Portillo's is officially open in Fishers

FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) -- Central Indiana lovers of Italian Beef, Chicago-style hot dogs and chocolate cake, rejoice! The Portillo's in Fishers is officially open.

Dozens of people lined up outside of the restaurant, located on 116th Street just off of I-69 prior to the grand opening at 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Some in line had never tried the food at the Chicago-based restaurant, others have been longtime fans.

One man who recently moved from the Chicago area to Fishers waited in line for nearly 18 hours to be the first customer.
