Default Beef Shack > Portillos

So they opened on in Elgin (I go to the St Charles location occasionally) but having just has portillos a week or so back and following up with Beef Shack, hands down Shack has a better sandwich and better beef. The bread is far superior too and Id even say the cheese is better.

No contest in this fat kids mind.

This is being based on the cheezy beef with garlic bread.

Someone on their FB page left a review saying the parking lot is a clusterfuck. I guess a wide open parking lot is really hard to navigate

You can tell they were suffering from new employee woes tho. Things were a bit slow and the drive through chick had a constant "wtf am i doing" stare.

Thank gawd! I need something other than Portillos, or one of the chains (McD's, Wendy's, BK, etc...) that are the only things open it seems by the time I am going home.

Maybe they confused the location on roselle. that parking lot can be goofy, pending what way you come in from. and in the winter its an ice rink.

I know they opened one at Roselle/Higgins quite a while back, I still haven't made my way to it yet.

I was there 4 out of roughly the first 7 days they opened

I cannot agree more with the thread title.

The only thing I dislike are the prices but unfortunately they are all high, so might as well go with the best.

Last couple times I went to Portillos the beef sandwiches sucked both in portion of meat and way too dry.

Portillos is still better than Chipotle, but the Ports is heading towards the shitter fast thanks to the Corpo Fucks who focus more on squeezing a dime as compared to product quality.

The parking lot is a joke.
it's packed with Sammie's and Maciano's overflow and Beef Shack is the only store open in the new strip mall

Much like my issue with them and their cheese sauce for the cheese fries...
