About us

Established in late 2018 and smashing grass-fed beef​ since day one, our focus has always been to mix the highest quality ingredients with just the right nostalgic elements, like American cheese, house-made sauces, and a locally baked plush white bun. We prepare LA style smashburgers that are meant to evoke everything that's great about this city.

After months of cooking at the best coffee shops, bars, and breweries in the city we were invited to LA Food & Wine in August of 2019. Competing against some of the best restaurants, chefs, and pop-ups in LA we served 800 smashburgers and where ultimately voted the Best Burger in LA!

The next thing we needed to do was plant our first flag, so in October 2019 we setup a semi-permanent but definitely temporary pop-up on a Silver Lake patio, right on Sunset Blvd. We had a brief but amazing opportunity to serve people and give them a place to sit and enjoy a weekend lunch. On March 15th 2020, the same day restaurants were shut down due to the pandemic, we held our last pop-up in Silver Lake to a constant line until sell out.


Our next pop-up location was in Highland Park, which opened on May 14th 2020. We opened with a walk up style window and a revamped mobile ordering system and were lucky enough to feed our friends and neighbors during those early months of the pandemic. Ultimately we decided to stick around, turning it into our very first bricks and mortar restaurant!


Just over a year later, on September 16 2021, we opened our second restaurant in Los Feliz. Located on Vermont Ave. between Skylight Books and the iconic Los Feliz movie theatre, we couldn't be happier to be on one of the most walkable and charming streets in the city.

In 2023 we partnered with Cream Co Meats to further improve our sourcing by using exclusively 100% Grass-Fed AND Grass-Finished beef from California ranches practicing regenerative agriculture for every single burger made at Goldburger.
