Famous hot dog joint joins Amalie Arena

Inside a grab-and-go concession stand at a sports arena

We love hockey and we love hot dogs. Now we can enjoy both. One reason to be excited about the Tampa Bay Lightning season is that our team looks strong, and win or lose, the games are always a blast. A new reason to be amped is the addition of Portillo’s, a fast food chain that specializes in Chicago-style food.

Portillo’s will be located just outside the 310 section at the arena. Go for the hot dogs, stay for the chili and cheese fries.

The concessions will also feature new design kitchen concepts that will allow attendees to get their grub faster. Fans will also be able to see their food before they buy it, and multiple digital menus will be available at all concessions.

This news follows the announcement that Cigar City is now the official beer of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Cheers to a successful 2019-20 season, Bolts! We’ll be with you all the way.

The Lightning pre-season is officially underway now. You can see a full schedule, and purchase tickets on the Bolts’ website.
