42 bucks for 3 people is just too much. In addition the place smells when you walk in. I've been come to photos for years and I'm tired of it all.

They changed a .69 cent visa charge and the food is high priced. And don't ask for any food that has onions they give you a whole onion bulb. $20 for burger fry and drink.

Have tried this place 3 times now...and I will not again- hot dog- meh, chicken pita-cold and dry, fries- too salty and undercooked.

Yum! Chicken pita was fantastic. Cooked perfectly with Greek spices. Also, always fun to get the little free ice cream cone. Very good!

Overpriced bland hot dogs over salted fries. $23 for 3 hotdogs,two fries and two sodas what a rip off!!

Just not real good. I've tried many different things and nothing stands out. I used to love Portillo's until they sold their chain. Now they're not very good. Time for someone to open a competitor. Photo's could have been it but they missed the mark.

I work in Palatine and decided to give it a try. The food is very pricey and they do not offer combos so you must order everything separate. I tried the blue cheese burger and it was very good. Fries are average but for 2.59...More

I have been there twice in the last month. Food (well, hot dogs...) was good. Both times the service was s.l.o.w.!!! Not quite sure why people who came in after us had there numbers called way before ours but that is what we experienced both...More

It is rare for me to find a place that has such a killer veggie burger but the one at Photos is on point! Skip their fries and their cheese sauce; fries are usually lacking in crispiness and are sometimes cold and the cheese sauce...More
