Service was relatively fast given the crowd. Burger was hot and prepared as ordered. There was an abundance of fries too many to eat after the fabulous clue cheese burger. Restaurant is always busy at lunchtime. Carryout is easy, dine-in leaves a lot to be desired but hey its a burger joint!

The food at Edzo's is well-prepared and very tasty. It is a no-frills hamburger joint. The shakes are great, too. The place is crowded and noisy. The décor is not the reason to go there. It is just the burgers. I prefer the patty melt with a vanilla shake. The small fries are not small. It is a local place... More

I've been eating at Edzo's since they opened and they've done a great job of keeping up the quality of their offerings. Both the griddle and char burgers are the best in town, so don't even bother with the chain joints that have cropped up following Edzo's lead. The fries and shakes are awesome and there is nowhere else in... More

They have really good burgers. You can either have them grilled or cooked on a flat top. The fries are fresh cut and fried twice. I really like the garlic fries. They also ha e really good milk shakes and like the Nutella one.

We went her for dinner and had a great time. Mostly college crowd but some locals as well. We all had burgers that were well cooked with fresh toppings. We tried the cheesy, all the way and truffle fries. All three were great with the extra toppings. We also shared a vanilla malt milkshake that came with the cold metal... More

Great burgers made to your specifications. Hand cut fries and all prices include tax. Given the number of customers they have at one time the wait for the food is fairly reasonable. Sometimes it hard to find a table.

Edzo's has the best burgers, fries, and shakes of anywhere in the area. I usually get the char burger well done and it's never dry, and always delish. They have awesome fries, the old fries are crispy, which I adore and they have different ones at times. Their shakes are insane, so don't miss out. It's a funky atmosphere with... More

I've visited here multiple times while living in Evanston, and Edzo's has been a consistent source of good burgers at fair prices. The specialty fries are nice as well (esp the lobster fries). The shakes are generally good, but sometimes the specialty flavors can be hit-or-miss.

I was working across the street from Edzo's and went for lunch, I had never heard of it before, but I was blown away with the burgers and the whacky frie combinations. I had the loaded fries the first day but had to go back to try the buffalo fries the next day. The buffalo fries are fries tossed with... More
