    The beef and sausage combo is my favorite. Don't go looking for a pizza puff though. They don't have them!

    Barnelli's rarely has a wait inside if you're strapped for time. Otherwise split up and hit both lines for a little off both menus.

    Italian beef with mozzarella and hot peppers. Really hungry, make it a big beef. Large cheese fries. I don't vary from this because it is so delicious. Super packed at lunch time. Get there early.

    The drive thru is very strange. They have a menu board, but they have people on foot's taking your order and money long before you get there. Tonight I got my food before I reach the menu board!

    barnellis and portillos, while physically in the same space, they are independantly operated business sharing a roof. This is not trivial.
