I seriously don't see what all the fuss is about. The inside felt a bit on the grungy side. I think they're trying to go for a 70s look but I'm not sure. If that's the case it matches the feel I get when I think of the 70s. I cant believe I paid $3.00 for a beef upgrade on a 4oz. burger! What a rip off. The upgrade was to beef from a local farm that humanely raises its cattle. They have different sized burgers but it looks like they use the same bun. I'm sure the larger burger fits wonderfully on their bun the 4 oz. has a very bad burger to bun to condiment ratio. To be totally cheesy here I have to say, "where's my upgraded locally raised beef?" The menu looks amazing on paper but when it comes to life I am a bit left with feeling MEH..... I've noticed that baskets of loaded fries are becoming all the rage. Man, did they have some amazing looking compilations but I cant justify eating a burger and a 3000 calorie serving of fries on my my own. I would certainly go back and share a fry with someone. Anyone???? I opted for a regular small fry. I could taste the oil. Yick! The potato should be the star. I also got a lot of end pieces. I know it was the end of the day and all but really?

Confession: I am not a burger person. Yes, I like them well enough, but I will not go out of my way to find a great one. Nevertheless, I was curious to check out Edzo's after reading all the rave reviews. Casual decor, quick service, compact space serving crowds with a decent rate of turnover. I ordered the Turkey Burger with basic toppings, and it was very flavorful. But the real star was the fries. The truffle fries, though a bit pricey at $6.50, are loaded with parmesan cheese and real truffle flavor. I tried a bit of an oreo milkshake, which was also delectable. Definitely worth a return trip!

While a vegetarian is not the target market, they do have some options on the menu. The well located burger joint is a favorite from little kids to graduate students to seniors. While it gets crowded, the line moves pretty fast. The inside out grilled cheese is a nice touch, but it suffers from being too salty. The same is true of the fries, which would otherwise be a fantastic version of the hand cut variety. Next time, I'm getting a "classic" veggie burger (yes, I'm coming back, my kid loved it.)

I am a burger fiend. When I am craving something for dinner, it is usually a burger, which led to the GREAT BURGER HUNT OF 2013. Over the last month, I have gone out for eight burgers. You might say,"eight burgers doesn't seem like a lot..." To that I would say: these were not haphazard burgers. These were intentional burgers. These were documented burgers. This brings us to Edzo's. On a Saturday night a few weeks back, we thought we would go to Edzo's from the western suburbs to grab a burger... and then saw the hours of operation. We went to North Branch in Glenview instead, which has a great burger. Edzo's is basically open for lunch each day, so the following Saturday, we headed up there. When we got there, the line was almost out the door. The wait was not very long, but when we were about to order (two people were in front of us), a table opened up and I went over to grab it. The man running the floor told me that we actually had to wait until we physically ordered before sitting. So, we ordered and then sat. At the time of the reprimand, it was annoying. Once we grabbed our food, it was a great rule. Funny how that works out. I ordered a single burger with sautéed mushrooms and swiss. The burger itself was dramatically over done, only better with ketchup. Even typing this now, I am surprised. The reviews across the board praise the burger... and that is not where I would place Edzo's strengths. The truffle fries? Yes. Nutella millshake? Absolutely. But, not the burger. So much of what makes Edzo's great are the add-ons. That and the ambiance. Once you find a table, you find you want to keep eating, even if a person who JUST ordered is staring you down, intimidating you to give up your table. Give Edzo's a try, but find some ketchup nearby or order the burger with butter on top.

OK burger, nothing really exceptional. I got the truffle fries after seeing many other people suggest it, but it was too salty for me. However, the inside-out grilled cheese was an interesting concept and delicious too, so I would probably return to try out a few of the other innovative choices.

Super excited when I saw there was a nod to In-N-Out with Edzo's own double-double animal style. While it was a decent attempt, just not quite the same. A burger, small fries, and soda was more than $12. That's 2 meals at In-N-Out! Too pricey for just ok burgers for me.

I went to Edzo's today because I heard they had great food. I got a cheesburger with chesse fries. The food was just OK. The bun was not fresh and the burger seemed pretty small inside of the bun. I had seen a few "Big" burgers on the grill but I definitley did not get one of those. The chesse fries were pretty godd but as mentioned the burger was ok.

Food: 5 Decor: 3 Service: 4 I came here with my gf for lunch around noon. Wait was almost to the door and took about 10 min. 1. Nutella shake, 4 Pretty good. Very slight nutella taste and enough to share between two. 2. Single griddle with egg, 5 Okay. Char was better, and I'd recommend getting at least a double. 3. Char with egg, 7 Amazing, probably the best burger I've ever had. Cooked to a perfect medium. Next time I visit, I'll probably only get the char with egg and mushrooms. 4. Garlic fries, 4 Mediocre. Fries were overcooked and way too oily.
