You can own the former home of Dick Portillo, the founder of the iconic restaurant chain Portillo's known to some as "the hot dog king."
Portillo's swanky suburban Addison home has a tiki bar and an indoor pool. According to the real estate listing, which lists the 2,600 square-foot home at $549,000, other features of the 220 N. Cardinal home included heated floor tiles, a billiards room, California Bamboo hardwood floors, an aromatherapy steam shower and a pool room sauna.
Correction: We and other outlets previously reported that home was owned by "Hot Dog King" Ira Helfner, the Chicagoan who introduced the Chicago-style Vienna beef hotdog to Honolulu, based on information in the real estate listing. It was owned by Portillo, not Helfner, the listing agent told Chicagoist Friday afternoon. We regret the error.
