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.

As good as Edzos original offerings were, they came with a side of guilt.

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.

Old fries are the bomb. But get there early, they don't serve dinner!

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?

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."
