A must stop for quick, inexpensive, pastas, soups and salads of a quality you can only find in Chicagoland! A part of Portillo's, it's a cut above the rest.

I started eating at Barnellis many years ago when they started to put them in the Chicago locations. Their pasta is always fresh and the sauces very flavorful. The service is always kind and the wait time is less than most fast food chains. They...More
