Time Out Chicago
The five-onion fries at Edzo’s Burger Shop in Evanston is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
Venture off the menu for shakes like The Elvis, Speculoos and the Fluffernutter.
According to burgerexpert and host of Burger Land George Motz, "Eddie Lakin is pretty passionate about burgers and got it right when he opened. Old school feel, new school quality."

OwnerEddie Lakin grinds his own meat—sourced from Slagel and other local farms—to make a thin-but-rich cheeseburger that melts into its soft bun. http://tmoutchi.us/YmTIHi

Let me make it easy for you: Old Fries, Nutella Milkshake, and an 8oz. burger with whatever fixins' you like.
Time Out Chicago
Say “speculoos” to the folks at Edzo’s and they’ll sell you a shake made with the obscure, spiced peanut-butter spread—say “the Elvis” and you’ll get a peanut-butter shake with chocolate and banana.
Time Out Chicago
Uncommonly thick Nutella shakes, fries with truffle salt—where does the low-brow end and high-end begin at Eddie Lakin’s burger shop?
Serious Eats
Order Taylor Street Fries, a standard order of fries, doused in Italian beef jus, topped with sweet peppers and spicy giardinera. The result? A glorious cross between an Italian beef and french fries.
The Feast
Owner Eddie Lakin credits fresh beef as the winning secret to his burgers, but we suspect a little magic might be involved. He just knows how to make a really great burger, what else can we say?

Order a char burger, truffle fries and Nutella milkshake. It's a heavenly meal for two to share!
Closes early so the owner can eat dinner with his kids! :)

As good as Edzo’s original offerings were, they came with a side of guilt.
Bon Appetit Magazine
Both the four-ounce griddled burgers and eight-ounce charbroiled ones are excellent. So are the fries dusted w/ truffle salt & Parmesan. Don't miss ultra-creamy "Five Dollar" milk shakes that cost $4.
Kelley Hollis
Order the Nutella milkshake. Trust me.
Marta Steele
OMG, the garlic fries.
Steve Gadlin
The truffle fries are fantastic. And the char burger is great.

Best Dang Burgers and Fries in the Western Hemisphere. Church.
Steve Dembo
Old fries are the bomb. But get there early, they don't serve dinner!
Kevin Mack
Garlic fries worth every bad breath.
