Chicago-based chain Portillo's still has a chance to make its way to the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove.

Maple Grove City Administrator Heidi Nelson said the city council reversed a denial resolution to allow Portillo's to build a new structure on the edge of the shopping center. The council previously denied the restaurant an opportunity to build during its April 3 meeting, she said.

"It was primarily over concerns of traffic congestion and parking in the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes," Nelson said.

The council's vote directs the city attorney to draft a resolution of approval that will go before the council at its May 1 meeting.

The Chicago-based restaurant is best known for its Italian beef sandwiches as well as Chicago-style hot dogs, chili and hamburgers.
