We had burgers & cheese fries. Both of them were amazing. Great staff as well. You can not go wrong with anything they serve here.

Found on Road Food, and green chili stew was calling to me. Although on the menu, they don't have it. "It's seasonal." Also no ice cream, so no root beer float. Servers were friendly... probably the best thing about this joint.

The Golden Light is a great place to have a burger and hang out or go see some great live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of great memories hanging out there for happy hour and after parades with my daddy and the Muleskinners...More

There should be (may already exist) a name for people who will say how wonderful food taste simply because a place is iconic while choking down one of the worst meals of their life. This is the Golden Light on 6th street. First, it took...More
