    I eat here weekly and in 3+ years I haven't eaten anything but the chopped salad and the occasional large fry. I know the hot dogs are great, but I regret nothing... the salad is just that good.

    I had the hot beef sandwich. Very good and juicy, not the best I have ever had but definitely worth a try. Very cool atmosphere with a 50's vibe. Worth a visit!

    All of their salads at Barnelli's are PERFECTLY mixed, no one ingredient overpowers the other. I recommend the Mediterranean, Hot Chicken Caesar, and Chopped salads.

    I was very disappointed that this Portillos didn't have the lemon poppyseed chicken salad on the menu. It's my FAVORITE thing & I've been able to order it at every other Portillos I've eaten at.

    Chicago visitors: This is the only italian beef in Chicago worth it's weight in gold. Ignore the tv hype about Al's; I tried it, mediocre at best... Portillos is busy for all good reasons

    Get in the Barnelli's line instead. It's the best "fast" italian food anywhere. My go-to order is the chicken al-diavolo (spicy and delicious). Ask for extra bread, it doesn't cost extra.

    Long line. Everyone before me & beside me swiped & paid the cashiers. Older white guy takes my debit card; looks at it... looks at me... and asks me for a picture ID. For a sandwich & iced tea. Hmm...
