Father’s Office: Epic Burgers in Los Angeles

As a huge fan of a good burger, I had heard about this place tons of times over the last couple of years. I never seemed to make it to Santa Monica and try it though until finally I happened to be in the area right at dinner time, and I got to give it a try. I have to say, it’s as good as it’s cracked up to be! Here is all the information.

This place is one of those order and go sit down places, but with service prices. That would be a problem if it weren’t so good. We ordered the sweet potato fries, barley salad, and the Office Burger with regular fries. It was a lot of food, but I wanted to give it a thorough review.

They also have an impressive beer menu with a ton of stuff I had never even heard of, which is always fun to try.

The sweet potato fries came out first and had a garlic aioli that sounded like it would be weird, but was awesome. The regular fries were equally stellar with just a hint of garlic.

The burger itself was one of the best I have had in SoCal, the main standout reason being that they had these grilled onions that were both smoky and sweet. I didn’t want it to end. The barley salad was good too; even though it looked small, it was pretty filling.

My only problem with Father’s Office is the price. It was not to bad for dinner but still a good 45 dollars for what we ordered (as of 2015). I think the food is worth it, but the prices will not allow you to go that often.

Be prepared, it is not easy to find seating in the Santa Monica one, so if you have a choice, I would probably go to Los Angeles location. It is right off the 10 Freeway and is a great place to stop and avoid traffic or to sit and enjoy a burger. Check it out and let me know if you agree or not in the comments
