    There are delicious, delicious fries... like the ones blanketed in Merkt’s cheddar; loaded ones dolloped with cheese, bacon, green onions and sour cream; and fries drenched in parsley garlic butter. Read more

    This Evanston mainstay serves griddled burgers, loaded hand-cut fries and its famous “five-dollar milkshakes.” It’s in your best interest to order one of each. Read more

    At Edzo's Burger Shop everything is made in-house. From the ground meat to the hand-cut fries, you can taste the freshness. Make sure to try something new, such as their truffle fries! Read more

    I appreciate all the effort that goes into the meat and fries but it just comes up short as the BEST burger in Chicago. It is a very good burger, not worth the extra for "special" meat.

    The Oreo milkshake is out of this world, and the burgers are INCREDIBLE. one of evanston's finest gems. Also the garlic fries are amazing.

    Get the lollapalooza! So good with banana peppers, bacon, cheese and spicy ketchup. Also the chocolate shake and regular fries were OK. Burger was definitely the main attraction.

    First time here, last time here. Ordered the Lobster Fries...don't waste your money, a pile of fries with a thumb size amount of chopped Lobster meat. Also ordered an Oreo shake...milk with Oreo bits.

    Lobster fries are a great option if not going for burger and fries. Corn dog is top notch as well!

    Everything I've ever had here is just fabulous, but I keep coming back for the amazing garlic fries. Everything is awesome though, from burgers to shakes. If you're in Evanston, you must visit!

    While a second location is open in Lincoln Park, the first in Evanston remains a cult destination and the gold standard for griddled, no-frills burgers. [Eater 38 Member]

    Speculoos. Daily experimenting often results in specials. Ask for off-menu items like The Elvis, Speculoos and Fluffernutter. For fruit, get what's in season: strawberries, peaches or blackberries. Read more

    They now have the $5 Lollapalooza burger and some of their new shakes include a spicy Mexican dark chocolate shake. Yummy!
