LIVONIA, Mich. (WXYZ) — As it moves towards opening up its first location in Livonia, and the second in Michigan, Portillo's is giving a sneak peek at the food with their legendary Beef Bus visiting metro Detroit.

The Beef Bus will be in metro Detroit from March 21 to March 30 serving up Chicago-style street food. It will also support the hiring center for the soon-to-open Livonia location.

During the ten-day stay, the 32-foot Beef Bus food truck will serve up Chicago-style Hot Dogs with all the fixings, a mini version of its famous Italian Beef Sandwich, Char-Grilled Italian or Maxwell Street Polish Sausages, and crispy crinkle-cut French Fries.

In addition, those seeking employment can interview on-site for various positions, beginning April 1. Interviews will take place Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Detroit Northwest – Livonia.

Upon completing an interview with the hiring team, all applicants will receive a voucher for a complimentary meal that can be redeemed from the Beef Bus while it is still on-site.
