To know Edzo’s, you must first know Eddie Lakin, a former line cook who worked in high-end kitchens around the world before settling back on his home turf to flip burgers for a living. But what burgers these are: Choice chuck, hand-cut and ground on-premises every morning, handled gently and given a shake of salt and pepper as they cook. Burgers at the original Evanston location are available in two preparations, smashed flat on a griddle, or grilled over an open flame (these "Char Burgers" aren’t available at the new Lincoln Park location). Go for the classic griddled burger: thin and crispy, served with up to three on a bun, topped with the classics as well as interesting options like garlic butter, fried eggs, and giardiniera (this is Chicago, after all).

  • Edzo's is giving Chicagoans one less reason to take the Purple Line north, now that it's taken its burger craftsmanship and '70s greasy spoon vibe down to Lincoln Avenue.
  • Judging by my Double Burger with Bacon and Fries, it's all good here.
  • "Edzo's takes an ordinary grilled cheese and puts it over the top with a layer of shredded parmesan on the outside of the sandwich, adding a crunchy-chewy coating that adds a shot of tanginess."
  • Great service, amazing fries
  • The best burger I have ever had. And the fries are just as good! Try garlic or truffle. Try to save room for a delicious shake!
  • Zagat's Chicago secret-menu-items article revealed the existence of the Speculoos shake, "a shake made with the Belgian sugar cookie spread, aka cookie butter."
  • Best $5 burger I've ever had. Go on a Saturday and get the lobster fries. Highly recommended
  • Try any of the signature fries!
  • Very good. No more or less special than Epic Burger or other similar spots (in my opinion). Next time I want to try the truffle fries!
  • The food the music and the people
  • The Santa Fe fries are amazing!
  • The fine folks at Edzo's have a sense of humor, as evidenced by the reference to "Pulp Fiction" on the milkshake menu, which advertises The Five Dollar Milkshake for $4.
  • The handmade milkshakes are phenomenal plus you get a sidecar!
  • Exactly what a short order burger should be. Get one of the specialty fries. Garlic fries are my favorite.
  • The truffle fries are to die for! Make sure you have a milkshake too!!!
  • American cheese, bacon, and garlic butter. With a maple bacon shake. Because you love yourself as much as I do.
  • Whistle 'Farmer in the Dell' to Omar the shake guy.
  • Lobster Fries are a must!
  • Everything that is great about Edzo's is showcased in the single burger. A beautifully grilled patty is draped in American cheese and topped with a soft bun.
  • I was a little disappointed in the burger, but the shake and fries were amazing!!
