Since placing third in this very category in 2013, Edzo’s Burger Shop, 1571 Sherman Ave., has fought off the competition to earn the title of best burger this year. When I mull over my own experiences with the juicy masterpieces served by the local establishment, the reasons for the burger joint’s triumph are clear. Fresh and flavorful, the burgers seem to capture the friendly vibes and welcoming atmosphere of the restaurant. I can never stop myself from going all the way and ordering a triple griddled burger (even if I have a few regrets later). Edzo’s also offers a char burger, a turkey burger, a veggie burger and the possibility to upgrade your beef, aiming to please its wide variety of customers. No matter which type I get, I always find myself daydreaming about the sumptuous creations for the rest of the day. The texture of the meat enables the patties to retain their shape in the bun while melting away into waves of taste bud ecstasy with each bite. Beyond burgers, Edzo’s is also famed for its extensive menu of fries and milkshakes. I can say only one thing to anyone going to Edzo’s for “just a burger:” good luck.
