Edzo’s is an old-school burger joint in Evanston, serving fantastic griddled diner-style patties, hot dogs, and fries. The orange, yellow, and brown color scheme reminds us of a puffy jacket from the 1980s, but it just adds to the retro charm of the place. Make sure to get an order of their specialty fries (like buffalo with bleu cheese, or the chili fries) and an Oreo shake.
