I recently came and tried out the veggie cheeseburger and I absolutely adored it, it had awesome flavor. I've also tried out their salmon burger in the past and It's a very unique and tasty option. I'm also big into their milkshakes and they offer...More

Expect to wait up to 15 or 20 minutes after you order to get bad food. How can a place with "Hotdogs" in their name serve tasteless rubbery dogs? This might have a shot at the worst hot dog in the Chicago area. There isn't...More

I got a sandwich and drink and paid by credit card. When I looked at the receipt later, the price was different from what the (rude) lady had told me, and there was an amount for 'card.' Yes, they charged extra because I used a...More

The food is decent. The chicken pita is really good. I won't take my family there anymore, as they always want to order drinks and they serve all their beverages in styrofoam. I mentioned it to a woman who I think may have been in...More

A bit of a dichotomy between having a “fast food” feel for the food and prices but not so much for the quickness of the preparation and service provided. Family tends to prefer going to and dining at the restaurant, since it takes some time...More

Do not waste your money here. My family and I have given Photo's a few chances because we were trying to support a local business, but they finally lost our business last week. There are several reasons: 1. The food is mediocre at best for...More

Love the atmosphere here. Cameras are hanging all over. Great tasting food served quickly. Similar to Portillos. Food is a little highly pricesd. Everything is ala carte. I love the chicken pita and hotdog.

This location of Photo's Hot Dogs is incredibly slow. Much slower than the relatively speedy, clean, and larger Mount Prospect location. Thought place was not busy, we had to search for a clean booth as most tables were sticky. Was disappointed that the char dog...More

The place is clean and well-decorated, but the food is nothing special. The Eisenberg hot dogs are kind of pale and remind diners of exactly what they have chosen to ingest. The prices are a little on the high side, although they have a lot...More
