Can’t go wrong with this Evanston spot, if you’re in the mood for a burger and fries. Try their specials for some interesting flavor combinations. Only thing I would improve on is the so so bums, but you really don’t notice when everything else is...More

Edzo's has great burgers and fries. My son is vegan and was able to get a veggie burger, which he said was great as well. The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food. There are lots of choices for both burgers and fries....More

The no-frills burger shop produces some great burgers and fries. It’s been busy the two times I have been there, but that’s because the food is worth it. I was also impressed with their dedication to hire and train at-risk individuals to work there and...More

We mostly stop by this after some other meal or just taking a round around the fountain square and given the location, it is just perfect! Their Nutella shake is super awesome. Cools down from within and a good value too! It is very fulfilling...More

This had been on the list for some time and I should have waited longer or gone several years earlier when it first opened. The place is pretty beat up, the service is indifferent, and my burger was way over cooked and quite sloppily presented....More

Reviewers raved about this place so we went expecting a great juicy burger. My single patty was awful. Way over cooked. Burnt even. Dry. I would have been better off at McDonalds. Fries were great, which is why I didn’t rate it a zero. So...More
