A picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case it could be worth a thousand beef sandwiches.

People freak out about Portillo's. When a new one is being built, the entire town freaks out. Italian beef! Hot dogs! Cheese fries!

Some people will always remember their first trip to Portillo's.

Because I grew up five minutes away from a Portillo's, I don't remember my first trip, but I know that if anyone brought me a chopped salad (no cheese) and cheese fries right now, I would love them. Like seriously, I ran out of food at my apartment this morning, please bring me a salad and cheese fries.

Now, here's the important thing. You can win free Portillo's for a year because it is National Italian Beef month.

All you need to do is take a picture and post it using #meatupsweeps and also be sure to tag @portilloshotdogs.

That's it. Just post the photo and you could be the winner.... of Portillo's for an ENTIRE YEAR.

Thankfully you don't have to get beef sandwiches for the entire year, I checked. Because, duh, I just want salad and cheese fries.
