    The famous "no-substitutions" burger can be ordered an hour later at the Helms Avenue location, which also has micro distilled spirits not offered at the 1953 original.

    Despite one too many rules, Sang Yoon's burger joint is straight-up killer, and serves a vast selection of craft beers. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    This should be a restaurant but it’s not. Best beer selection in the world. The burger is made one way and one way only. -Mark Peel, Top Chef

    This is an amazing burger and beer joint. I believe their burgers have been dubbed "crack burgers" because you just can't get enough. There beer selection on tap is also outstanding! LOVE THIS PLACE

    If I had to choose between Louboutin shoes and a Father's Office burger, I would choose a F.O. Burger. A bold statement, but try one! You will never want another burger again EVER. I'm addicted

    I had a religious experience while eating this burger. It's like sex. It's pink, it glistens, it gets all over your face but you don't care because it's just. That. Good.

    Don't say to the bartender, "OMG I've heard SOOO much about your burger...!" and expect a surprised look. They hear that crap all day long. Just order it and move on. It's good and they know it.
