In celebration of Italian Beef Week (May 20-26), Portillo’s – the famed and fast growing purveyor of unrivaled Chicago-style street food – is reuniting with fellow Windy-City giant, Lou Malnati’s – Chicago pizza leader long celebrated for its buttery-crust deep dish – to give fans nationwide the opportunity to savor the most Chi-conic culinary collab of all time: the Portillo’s x Lou Malnati’s Italian Beef Deep Dish. As any Windy City sports fan can tell you, there is nothing sweeter than a “three-peat” – especially one that teams up two masters of Chicago-style cuisine.

“Portillo’s Italian Beef is a favorite for many of our incredible guests and we understand why,” said Nick Scarpino, Portillo’s Chief Marketing Officer. “With flavorful beef that has been slow roasted for four hours, mouthwatering gravy and the option to enjoy it with sweet or hot peppers, our Italian Beef sandwiches are quintessential Windy City cuisine. And, as we gear up for Italian Beef Week, we are thrilled to reunite with our friends at Lou Malnati’s to give fans nationwide another delicious way to savor our Chicago-style Italian Beef.”

Once again available for nationwide shipping through Lou Malnati’s Tastes of Chicago, the Portillo’s x Lou Malnati’s Italian Beef Deep Dish Pizza, with either Portillo’s homemade sweet peppers or its hot giardiniera for a spicy kick, returns for a limited time in packs of two, four or six, and in combination with other classic Portillo’s offerings, like Italian Beef Sandwiches and Chicago-Style Dogs. Fans can also enter to win a $300 Tastes of Chicago gift card from May 14-19 by visiting

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Portillo’s for the third year in a row with our Italian Beef Deep Dish Pizza,” said Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati's. “Nothing says Chicago more than pairing our legendary deep dish recipe and ingredients with Portillo’s slow-roasted Italian beef – just in time for Italian Beef Week celebrations, whether in Chicago or around the country.”
