Father's Office was the original gourmet burger restaurant in Los Angeles, provided you are willing to have it their way--no ketchup, no additions or substitutions. The burgers should be accompanied by their delicious fries (regular or sweet potato). They have a great selection of beers...More

The menu is as cute as the name. But the burgers are serious business. Esquire Magazine rates the Office Burger among the best in the world. So will you. Expect long lines, and a constant buzzing energy. Umm, who's that sitting across from me? Didn't...More

famous for its burgers - and rightly so! huge burgers slid into a fresh-baked Helms Bakery bun, no choice of condiments, comes with yummy sautéed onions and the usual pickles etc. Fries are thin and crispy and one serving can easily be shared. Good beer...More

This place has a great feel and is perfect for drinks with friends. If you're planning to eat, be sure to look at the menu before you go. It's very limited and they will make no exceptions or modification in any way to any item....More

Two Office Burgers and two drinks: 1) Scottish Beer; 2) Pear Cider. One order of frites. The fries are the shoestring style, nicely seasoned, served with aioli (no ketchup: I think it's considered gauche here), The fries are unsatisfying if you like the traditional style...More

Very good beer selection, tasty food. The staff were friendly. However, this place is unorthodox in some ways. First, the menu has small plates and only four actual entrees. We found the selection limited. Second, you have to go to the bar to order your...More
