This is inside Portillo's and has delicious pasta. If you are going with a group, this is perfect. You can pick whichever side you want! The service is super quick, even though there's always a crowd, and the food is great!

Great, reasonably priced salad, pizza, ribs and pastas. Food is good, fresh and well priced. Avoid the pizza because they seem to take forever, Great for families with younger children.

The salads were wonderful and a reasonable size and price, not to big that you can't eat it all. We went back the next day for lunch but the lines inside and at the drive-thru were too long.

You can't be from the suburbs without making the trip out to Portillos/Barnellis at least a few times a year. Everything is delicious. I'm away at college but whenever I'm home I meet friends here. This what we all crave when we are away at...More
