Burgers and sandwiches are truly American cuisine. Edzo’s burger place transported me way back to 70’s when I used to drool over burgers in Archie’s comics.
We sat close to the cooking station and we could see the chef at work.
The chef flavoring the sausage with cheese or chili for making tasty hotdog
Roasting patties on the girdle for making hamburgers
Making hamburger with chicken/pork.mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, cheese or of different combinations
They have an amazing variety of fries on their menu. We ordered for fries while we waited for hamburgers. There were buffalo fries that had buffalo sauce, cheese and celery, then there were crazy fires with chili, cheese, chopped onions, angry fries with four kinds of sauces, truffle fries with truffle, salt parmesan. One interesting fries they had on their menu called Lobster fries that was deep French fries with bacon/caramelized onions, cheddar spread, crispy fried onions and BBQ sauce.
Edzo is the celebrated quick serves chain that lures local with most inventive smoothies and shake. Most of the locals were from around Sherman Ave, Evanston.
All the staff wore different colored Tee shirt but with same message promising good burgers and shakes. The message "Freshly ground Burgers, Hand cut fries and great shakes" and it delivered as it promised.
They looked so delicious.
It taste great with mustard and tomato sauce.
This place cannot be compared to KFC or Kentucky place where burgers are made in machines over the fixed proportion ingredients.
Here the burgers are hand made for every diner. Each sausage fried, each patties flavored and roasted on the girdle and thats what makes it so special.
