This is a great place for a simple burger. Restaurants often run into problems trying to add too many options with size, additions and what not. The Golden State has decided to do a few things, but do them very well.
There is only one of each sandwich: burger, veggie burger, tuna, BLT, muffuletta, chicken and veggie.
There are other sausages and salads to be sampled, but really this is their wheel house. The burgers are a good size and go nicely with the aged cheddar cheese and smoked bacon. The tastes are subtle and blend nicely without one dominating the others.
The bread paired perfectly. It didn't break down and fall apart. It fought back to provide slight resistance and it absorbed the juices from my medium rare burger nicely to impart more flavor.
I suggest that you give this Mid City locale a shot and you will be impressed. I do however suggest that you bring a jacket as the AC really is working overtime. I was actually taken aback with the briskness of the place when I got there and had to find a spot that didn't cool my burger off too quickly.
The one real drawback of this restaurant was the length of time it took for me to get my food. Perhaps this is the trade off with getting such an expertly made burger. I did notice that I was not the only one that had to wait 15 to 20 minutes for my meal but I did appreciate it all the more once I got it.
