Goin' Back to Cali: The Golden State, Redux

It's summertime (shhh, don't tell the calendar) and the livin' can still be easy when you grub on burgers and beer. The Golden State on Fairfax is one of the newest burgers on the map (and, yes, it also happens to have made it onto this map of some of the city's Essential eats) and after LAist Lifestyle Editor Julie Wolfson got a taste of the place, it wasn't going to be long before the rest of us got on board.

The Golden State was the perfect Sunday night stop last weekend before hitting up a nearby concert. It was laid back inside the tiny storefront-style eatery, but the food packed a super-sized taste and the service was all smiles. We ordered up a house burger, done medium-rare and...grab a napkin!...that sucker is juicy!
