I was with friends when I visited. I ordered the quarter pound char burger and fries. The burger was a little under cooked. The bun and dressing was good. The fries were plentiful but a little greasy. The atmosphere was crowded, plastic chair sheikh. Locals may like this one. It would not be my favorite.

Best burgers in town and shakes are excellent--the real deal. Can be crowded and noisy, so plan accordingly,

We had a delicious take-out lunch from Edzo's recently. Initially, when I had called, they said they were too busy for a phone order (little weird), so we ended up going in to order take-out. Everyone in our party got the Griddled Burger (4 oz), which was a perfect size with a milk-shake and small fries. All of the fries... More

Great Burger! $8.50 with cheese. Fries are all fresh cut. Milk shakes are worth $5 I really enjoy the place and go for lunch( they close at 3PM?) whenever I am in neighborhood. It is a great cheeseburger...not the best I even had but real close.

The hype is not hype. This is the real deal burger. Totally customizable (including natural, aged and/or grass-fed beef). And the fries are nuts, too. Oh, did I mention the shakes? Great layout, good buzz. Nice Evanston crowd. Not the cheapest burger in town, but fairly priced, delicious and served by a guy who knows what he stands for -... More

Not only is the owner of Edzo's a really great guy, but their food is incredible. The garlic fries are the light of my life and their burgers are reasonably priced and taste great. It does get a little crowded around meal time and the line can go to the door, so plan accordingly.

We ordered the 4-ounce grilled burgers with FF. The burgers were delicious. The bottom piece of the rolls were a little too hard, however. The FF were good, but not great. It would be great if they would add onion rings to their menu. The chocolate shakes were also delicious.

Hands down one of the best burgers you will find anywhere.... I would have to go back more than 3 decades to the burgers at Cambridge, MA Bartleys Burger Shack to remember a burger as tasty and delish --- but at Edzo's you get the BEST BURGER ever since. Fries are pretty good as well... lots of variety but I... More

Thanks Ed for opening nights. You make the best burgers and when they are ordered medium rare that's how they come. Excellent shakes as well

Was in Evanston for a day and tried Edzo's based on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. Outstanding burger which is the draw. Fun location. Very friendly service. Fries were above average but not fabulous. I was somewhat disappointed with my Nutella shake. Flavor was not very bold. Good portions at fair but not cheap prices. If in the area again... More
