The Golden State, Fairfax District

· 426 N Fairfax Ave Los Angeles, CA 90036 · Neighborhood · West Hollywood ·

Two of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, head up this delicious, hip little burger joint that prides itself on local.

Hence, the name The Golden State.

I am not a beer drinker. Yet I go to The Golden State for the beer. Let me correct that. I go to The Golden State regularly for the beer and ice cream… together. It’s the most delicious marriage of two food items since rice and beans or peanut butter and jelly or chips and salsa or… you get the point.

A Rasputin Beer Float with Scoops Brown Bread Ice Cream. Yummm.  It’s what drives me to eat here almost once a week. Well, that and the AMAZINGLY tasty burger. Did I mention I am also not a burger eater? I am not. Well, I wasn’t before this place.

Oddball ice cream flavors paired with micro-brewed, locally made beer is a no brainer. Their menu is ever expanding and they have been featuring specials on different days of the week. Eg. Lamb Burger, Fish and Chips, specialty Salads, etc. This place also serves the best Veggie Burger I’ve ever had. I’m obviously not a vegetarian, but I LOVE their Veggie Burger. It’s perfect.

Anytime a friend comes to town, I always bring them here. If I find out a SoCal buddy of mine hasn’t heard of it, I drop everything, throw them in the trunk of my car and take them straight here.

Thank you Golden State for introducing me to burgers and beers I like and for adding 3 inches to my waist line.  Eh, uhm actually, I hate you. See you tomorrow.
