The Golden State was opened in 2007 by two friends who had very limited restaurant experience and mostly no idea what they were doing. All they knew was that they cared about California, and showing off just how great the products of their home state could be. The result was one of the most unique and exciting craft beer lists in the city, a wildly popular beer float, and a burger that LA Weekly and Zagat called amongst the best in all of Los Angeles. The Golden State boasts a small menu of burgers, salads, sandwiches, hot dogs, ice cream and daily specials that our fiercely loyal customers will continue to enjoy for years to come.
