G's Juice

343 Culver Boulevard, Playa Del Rey, CA - (310) 822-7733
Posted By Dale Fine on 6/10/2009 11:20:00 AM
A short distance from Dockweiler State Beach near the northern fringes of sprawling Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) you'll find two restaurants in one. The front door opens into the two-decades-old Senior G's Mexican Restaurant; turn immediately to your right to find the entrance to their newer juice bar. Since 2006, G's Juice offers fresh vegetable and fruit juices, frozen yogurt, and, of course, fruit smoothies.

Unlike many of the Southern California smoothie chains, the smoothies at G's Juice are no-nonsense and straightforward, blending seasonal fruit with non-fat milk and yogurt. The Berry Good smoothie combines fresh blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cranberry juice into a thick, thirst quenching, tart and sweet fruity explosion.

You can sit inside or at one of the outdoor tables, or enjoy it "to go": the perfect, refreshing pick-me-up on the way to a day at the beach.

The hallmark of a Southern California juice bar is the display of wheatgrass behind the counter.

The fish taco is made with grilled tilapia. We especially like the tomatillo guacamole sauce on top.

The fresh-squeezed fruit juice known as OMP is made with orange, mango, and pineapple, but mostly tastes of orange juice.

According to the young man behind the counter, a shot of wheatgrass is a good source of antioxidants.

The chips taste homemade and we love the chunky, mildly hot salsa that begins your meal.

One entrance leads to the Mexican restaurant and the separate Juice Bar in an adjoining room.
