Grass fed and great tasting. A big, fat juicy burger made to order. It's a tad pricier, but worth it for the quality. Super casual dine in area usually has a spot open.

Edzo's is OK but nothing more. Sure, it's vastly better than Mickey D's and most other burger places but it's not up to my idea of the gold standard: Hackney's.

Don't understand all the over the top reviews. Certainly a decent burger...nothing special. Service was excellent, friendly.

Burger was so greasy the bottom half of bun was totally soggy within seconds. Definitely not worth the rather steep price they charge.

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.

Thank mark s
