We popped in here for a quick bite at lunch. The hole in the wall vibe is strong here. Admittedly, I was starving, so I was predisposed towards liking my meal. The hot dogs were pretty tasty, and the lobster fries were amazing. The staff is easygoing and friendly, and they serve ice cold Mexican Cokes, which go perfectly with... More

In a market where burgers hotdogs and pizza are on every corner at Edzo's is above the fray. As burgers are really special and his fries with the various toppings make it all worthwhile. Give them a try the love this place.

Wow!!! The food was amazing! I had the 8oz, two patties and the truffle fries. The flavor of the burger was out of this world. I highly recommend. The service was also exceptional!!

Enzo's is a classic burger joint. They haven't painted in 30 years, the tables look grimy even after they sterilize them, grease is poppin, bunch of veteran hash slingers back there grinding out food that is just generally bad for you. But if you're going to have a burger and fries with that shake, well, you should go here. You... More

A bigger variety of french fry options than you will find anywhere. We enjoyed experimenting with a couple. Our burgers and shakes were terrific. Great reward for a long walk around Northwestern University's campus.

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.

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