No, Warren Buffett is not buying Portillos!

Public Service Announcement:
Warren Buffett did not buy the Portillos Hot Dog chain.  Contrary to the Chicago area Daily Herald initial news report.  Berkshire Partners, a Boston Private Equity Group, was the buyer. Unrelated to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway investment group.

Congrats to the excellent operator of the midwest’s largest independent restaurant chain for getting this $1 billion payday!
