“Best burgers in Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

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

“really good burger, worth the stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

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 I will be back!
Word of caution, they close quite early so check hours before going.

“Fresh Meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Finally went to Edzo's today as I'm temporarily living in Evanston. Fresh meat and ingredients with a great selection of different local farms meat options - grassfed, dry aged and humane options. Friendly staff and attentive order taking. Unfortunately, the patty lacked seasoning. The garlic fries which were recommended were truly amazing. Solid choice, would have been much better if seasoned well.

“Great if you like burgers and fries - Halloween Decore (gulp!)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

If you are a burgers guy - this is one of Chicago's best joints. Want your fries about a dozen different ways! The place to be! Like your grilled cheese coated with delicious biting Parmesan cheese? Stop on in! Like your service counter adorned with real life-looking body parts in packaging during the Halloween season? (no.....better stop back later!). Aside from that - this place is definitely a taste of Chicago. Maybe I'll get to a 4 if I stop back after the "holiday" season!

“Great spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Taken there by a local who's had a first visit there as well.
Atmosphere is very nice and people are friendly.

Food was terrific - we got one charred 8oz-great if you like it juicy, and a couple of 4oz-great if you're not starving/small stomach and like it well done.
Excellent fries - we regretted not taking any specialty fries.
