Follow the skaters on Fairfax into intimate burger joint the Golden State, in the running for best burgers in LA. Their locally-sourced the Burger ($12) is so mouth-watering, you’ll daydream about it weeks later. We recommend pairing yours with crispy sweet potato wedges ($4) dipped in curry ketchup and washing it down with a beer float ($8), made with brown-bread Scoops ice cream dipped in North Coast Brewing’s Old Rasputin stout. Bonus: Golden State sources as many fresh ingredients as possible from (you guessed it) California.

This place probably makes one of the best burgers in the city. It's juicy and fresh. The Golden State is right on Fairfax so you can make a night of it by grabbing a burger and then checking out a screening at the Cinefamily (Silent Movie Theater) down the street.
