Well, that certainly didn't take long. We told you back in July that Beef-a-Roo was looking to add yet another Rockford location at the Highcrest Center, and now that goal has gotten a thumbs-up from the Rockford City Council.
Judging by the popularity of Portillo's here in Rockford, I've got to assume at least half that $3 billion came from the Mulford Village Drive location. I know that my family is good for probably 3 trips to Portillo's a month.
I would think most of us in the Rockford area are big fans of Beef-A-Roo, so when I first heard that they're considering opening a new location in Rockford's Highcrest Centre, I applauded the decision.
And, it's not winter time. Construction, of the road variety in particular, is in full swing. If you're anything like me (and I know I am), you'd like a little heads-up once in awhile as to where the road work is taking place, so you can plan accordingly...
