Well, I shouldn't be surprised, seeing how busy Ted's Hot Dogs in Tempe is.

Portillo's is Chicago Style and Ted's is Buffalo Style. The only thing they have in common is that they're in the general Hot Dog Species.

Enjoy! Bob was a truck driver thru the Chicago area and brought home Portillos a lot. I prefer Als beef-but a good place!

Great news. When we come in we stay in Tempe, just north of Ted's, so we'll be able to easily hit both. Perhaps multiple times.
 
The first time I came to Phoenix I was looking for somewhere to hit for lunch and just happened to see to see Ted's. Knowing nothing about it, I stopped in. I asked the guy behind me what he would recommend, and he told me he was from Chicago, so I knew it had to be good.
 
Now I have to go there every time I go out. Funny I stumbled on it completely by accident.

I'll wait about a year and a half until the crowds die down a little bit and give it a try.
OR, Maybe it will take some of the pressure off the Scottsdale location & I'll go there.

The beautiful thing about Portillo's is they can crank through long lines quickly. Way quicker than Ted's. You shouldn't have to wait that long, and you REALLY shouldn't wait that long.
