Can't go wrong

Can't ever go wrong with any Portillo's. Schaumburg location has a cute 50's-60's theme. Place is decked out with theme related decor. Food is usually quick and always delicious. They get pretty busy during lunch so I recommend getting there a little early.

There is a display case in the lobby of the fresh seafood and steaks that are available for your dinner. The food is quite good and they offer rooms for larger groups. This is a popular place for celebrations.

Went to dinner with some business associates. We all wish that we had gone somewhere else. I will list pros and cons to keep as simple as possible. Pros: Appetizers were good, we had chicken wings & calamari. Salad & soup were also good, and included in the price. Cons: no beer on tap, so you couldn't try anything local.... More

Food is very good. Full dinner of soup, salad, potato and entree. Make sure you go hungry. Steaks are great, but so is the chicken or pasta.

Nice restaurant with an extensive menu. Lacks a little ambiance but overall a good place to eat. The bread is served nice and warm and is very tasty, salads are very fresh and enjoyable. The entree portion sized are huge and you will see most guests leaving with "doggy" bags. ( I had to ask for a bag too) The... More

Stayed at La Quinta next door that was better than expected. Tired after long day driving so happy to walk across parking lot to Jameson Charhouse, despite some negative reviews on Trip Advisor. Place a little dark, but could still see fine. Enjoyed a sautéed whitefish ($14.95) with a bass ale ($5.00). Whitefish done beautifully; large serving of large broccoli... More

This is one of our go-to places. We know we will get a good steak and friendly service. There is a fireplace in the main room that lends a nice feel on cold nights. There are booths if you want to be cozy. It is a great place for conversations. Soup, salad and potato included in the entree price. The... More

The menu is very acceptable; As soon as the food was served, the manager came to the table to check , Asked if we needed more sauce, butter, etc. That has never happened ever: It was great: The food was extremely good tasting, presentation was stunning, and more than enough to fit any appitite.

I was apprehensive about eating here based on a few previous reviews. I was impressed with the prompt and attentive service as well as the quality of the food. I had a special of fried shrimp and ribs and was not disappointed. The special came with soup (chicken noodle) and salad with fresh bread. All very good. The fried shrimp... More
