  A customer at an Oak Lawn eatery was charged with battery Sept. 22 after he attacked a restaurant employee, according to police.

  Michael J. Strzykalski, 39, of Chicago, was arrested at about 4 p.m. as he attempted to leave Portillo’s, 4020 W. 95th St.
  A Portillo’s employee told police that Strzykalski became upset when some of his order was missing. The restaurant took the food back and agreed to prepare him another order.
  Police said Strzykalski began yelling at an employee about the order before chest bumping him. The employee grabbed the offender and the two men struggled. Strzykalski punched the employee several times until the two men were separated by other restaurant employees, police said.

  Strzykalski admitted that he grabbed the employee but denied hitting him, reports said.
