A true hole in the wall. If your hungry and want a good burger, then stop here... it wont disappoint. The Hamburgers are so large, that i'm glad we split an order of fries... we left happy and full.

Delicious good old fashioned burgers...the price is right as well. It’s exactly what you would expect an old hole in the wall bar to be. Prompt service, hand cut fries, & the jalapeño burger was bomb.

We were shopping at the nearby antique stores and are fans of all things Route 66. I read where Golden Light has been in same location since 1946. We had a late breakfast at the hotel but we just had to stop for a beer....More

Great inexpensive burger and amazing fries(ask for them well done!). In addition to the burgers and fries, the green Chile stew is really good. The beer is ice cold, and the servers are friendly. An added bonus- if you are at Golden Light for a...More
