Go Burger, Hollywood
We happened upon Go Burger while walking to the metro station from the Arclight. From the outside, it looks like a sports bar that serves burgers, but once you walk in and see the shake menu, it's hard to leave without trying one. Plus, who doesn't love a good juicy burger with a thick milkshake?
The restaurant is very open with large windows to let in natural sunlight and several TVs for sports enthusiasts. The menu is pretty straight forward, but the best section is under "Spiked Shakes." We've been making "adult milkshakes" at home for years and we're so glad to find a spot in LA that serves them. Unfortunately, neither one of us was in the mood for an alcoholic beverage so we will have to come back and try Go Burger's version.
This is a great plate to munch on while watching a game. Who knew a plate of waffle fries toped with cheddar, bacon, sour cream and jalapenos could be so satisfying. Can't wait to make this at home for our next party.
We couldn't eat here without trying a shake and are very glad we picked the cookie monster. Made with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and blended with chips ahoy cookies, it was the perfect milk shake to go with the burger. They even serve it with a boba size straw to make it easier to get the chunks of cookie. Not a cheap shake, but for people who don't have shakes often, it's worth the splurge.
The Classic Burger
The classic burger is made with 100% black angus beef served on a toasted bun and all the normal fixings. It was juicy, flavorful and really hit the spot. The proportions were just right and nothing overpowered the rich and meatiness of the beef.
Overall, the food was solid and the service was on point. The prices were higher, but about right for the area. We would stop by again the next time we're in the area and in the mood for a good shake and burger combo.
