After months of speculation and back-and-forth, it finally got confirmed this year that Portillo's is indeed coming to the Quad Cities. There's a lot of hype around it, and rightfully so. Portillo's has the best chocolate cake.

Now, according to a report from TripAdvisor, Portillo's has been legitimately named the best restaurant in the nation. Well, more specifically, it's the best "Fast Casual" restaurant. It beat out Earl of Sandwich (they have delicious brownies) and Shake Shack.

I admit, I was surprised to see Shake Shack come in at number three. People are crazy about their burgers and shakes.

Unfortunately, we still have to wait until the new year to get a Portillo's hotdog and cake shake, but for those who haven't been lucky enough to have it before, this should inspire some confidence.

The restaurant is set to open in Davenport, but we don't have an exact date just yet. Fingers crossed it's sooner rather than later!
