Best Italian Beef in Freeport. Great friendly service. Reasonable prices. Easy to order and pick up. I have never been disappointed over the last few years, except for when they closed for a fire they had happen.

Based on previous reviews and the name "312" which I suspected refers to "Chicago" Beef & Sausage I gave this place a try. What a total disappointment. I ordered the Italian Beef with Mozzarella. The gravy (juice for you non-Chicagoians) was boring. It lacked any...spice and was like water. The meat in the sandwich was equally as boring lacking any true Italian Beef flavor. The mozzarella was shredded cheese which was placed inside the bun with the meat placed on top. Upon eating the sandwich, the cheese never melted as was still all shredded. Sadly the entire sandwich was a total disappointment reminding me of something you'd find at gas station in Florida. I will say that their homemade fries were a refreshing change from the frozen fries most place use. But if you're looking for a good Italian Beef sandwich you should avoid this place. Horrible!More

Very tasty beef sandwich. This shop is very small, so it's more of a take-out place (although there is counter seating). Friendly staff and fresh ingredients.

I go here from time to time for their italian beef and sausage combo. It's solid. My wife likes their Chicago style hot dogs and we both love the fresh cut home-style fries. It's not really a sit-down place, but it's good for a quick...grab and go.More

A friend has mentioned many times how tasty the food is and that I should stop. So glad I did. I've tried the Mac & Cheese hot dog....OMG....and the Italian beef (the best I've ever had). The hot right off the grill food, made per...my special request was delicious. The fries are fresh cut right as you order and the serving in HUGE! I can't wait to start crossing more of their entrees off the list. Stop in, you'll not be disappointed.More

Was craving some of the ubiquitous well loved Chicago food offerings, so I went online to see if I could get a taste between Galena and O’Hare airport. 312 Beef and Sausage came up, and we were determined to take a short detour of of...Rt. 20 while heading to the airport. Not much seating once we entered but boy did the aromas bring back the memories of all the hot dog stands I grew up with. Total nostalgia. Ordered a Chicago dog and fries. They cut the potato while you watched and dunked the sticks into the fryer. Everything was awesome, but to make sure your fries don’t go limp, rip the bag open as soon as you can. Otherwise they steam. Most great French fries are double fried, but these are just skinny enough that they don’t need that, but their ability to go limp increases exponentially when not exposed to air. The dog was awesome. My cravings for Chicago foods was temporarily satiated.More

It's too bad this place isn't situated in a real restaurant storefront, because it would attract a lot bigger clientele. Their parking lot is a nightmare. Handicapped access just about non-existent, and forced stand-up eating is a travesty. Despite these serious shortcomings, this is typical...Portillo's fare, which only recently branched out into Rockford. Freeport needs this kind of restaurant, just in a better building. There are a fair number of vacant buildings downtown; they should have picked a better one and the people would be rolling in. I've been there twice, and the food was very good both times. The hot dogs were both delicious and pricey, but that's the going rate in Rockford too at Uncle Nicks and others.More
