Sure it’s the middle of winter, but nothing goes with a hamburger and fries like a nice, thick milkshake. In this weather perhaps the “Spicy Sconnie” burger at Edzo’s is in order. It won’t make you sweat but it packs enough heat for the counterman to warn “It’ll talk to you.” Some might say it will even yell at you. Regardless of your heat tolerance, the perfect complement to any spicy burger is the soothing chocolate, peanut butter and banana shake known as “The Elvis.” Hot be damned. Hot damn. Try one ($5.50) topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry at Edzo’s Burger Shop, 2218 N. Lincoln. — Michael Austin
