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!

We typically visit Portillo's & eat inside. This time we were taking a meal to new parents & decided to pick-up food at the drive-thru from Barnelli's. We ordered ribs & pasta, a chopped salad & shakes. Our order took longer than most & once...More

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 food is decent but nothing spectacular. It is more like a fast food restaurant with a sit down menu. I had ribs this time and they were fairly good but the sauce was nothing I would want to try again. The wait was a...More

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
