    Go to The Golden State and get the burger with the Jalapeno slaw. It's mighty delicious and not as heavy as the fries.

    Even the burger is made to celebrate the foods of Cali: California beef cooked to order, California cheese, topped with bacon and arugula. The burger itself is char-grilled and served on brioche.

    Enjoyed the burger & the jalapeno coleslaw. One thing to note is the oil used to fry their fish is also used for all their fries. A hint of fishiness on the sweet potato fries turned my friend off.

    They serve Scoops ice cream here, which, in my opinion, is the best gelato in LA. They only carry about 6 flavors but it's still a nice touch. And the beer float (Rasputin stout with ice cream) is a f

    They curate 12 taps with a keen eye for balance, as well as carry Scoops ice cream in vanilla that factors into a now notorious beef float that helped to launch the beer float trend in L.A.

    Great burgers here but don't just mindlessly add fries as side. The amazingly delicious Golden State Red Potato Salad perfectly complements any of the fine burgers on the menu. Try it next time.
