Charlie Beinlich's VS Brandt's Little Cafe

I have heard that both of these places make great burgers, have a roadhouse , rustic decor.
Both have been around for many years. If you had a choice between these two , which one would you perfer?

northwest suburbs - hoffman, barrington area

Only two places come to mind for fine dining in that area.
Barn of Barrington is very nice and has a good wine list but is only open Wed- Sun. The Millrose Restaurant in S.
Barrington is also very nice but not so much fine dining.
Not to far in Schaumburg is Chicago Prime Steakhouse which is very good and a new place that I have not been to yet but heard good things is Entourage also in Schaumburg.
