    You come here for two things, great beer and The Office Burger, which is a piece of heaven between buns featuring caramelized onions, bacon, Gruyere, Maytag blue and arugula. Top 5 in my burger list!

    For late night eats, go to Father’s Office for its no-substitutions Office Burger, a dry-aged beef patty topped w/caramelized onions, arugula, gruyere & blue cheese (order until midnight on Fri+Sat). Read more

    Best burger joint in Los Angeles. Burger is delicious, perfectly done - simple and elegant. The French fries and aioli make for an amazing dish. Pair with a craft beer and this is a can't-miss spot.

    The gourmet burger comes with blue cheese, arugula and bacon compote and the fries with aioli. We might object, except that our mouths are too full of potato-y goodness. Read more

    Most wonderful beer list I've seen for a while. Goes well with the house burger. They're serious about their sassiness though: no substitution or deletion, no ketchup for your fries.

    Cheese plate goes excellent with their Panama Rum, and the current seasonal special of soft shell crabs is amazing! Go during the day, even on weekends, for a good seat!

    Do what the internet says. Take seat, order at bar, go back to seat, food will be delivered to table, enjoy. Great burger (don't add or remove anything), tasty marrow. Garlic aioli for fries was good.

    This heavenly creation made with dry-aged beef, arugula, Gruyère cheese and a bacon-onion compote is like eating French onion soup. Word to the wise: Dont ask for ketchup here; they’ll laugh you away. Read more

    For newbies: this is a seat yourself scenario, walk up and order at the bar. Don't order your burger well done, and it's probably big enough for two. One of the best beer selections on the West Side.

    Order the Office Burger, inspired less by classic hamburgers and more by the flavors of French onion soup. The result remains one of the definitive high-end burgers. Read more

    The food is good, the cocktails are delicious, beer selection is really awesome. Insufferably hipster, though. And *any* deviation or request off menu (including cocktails) will be summarily rejected.

    The meat has the perfect amount of age, making it a great burger. They also have an awesome beer list and a very knowledgeable staff. Read more

    Best burger in LA? I won't contest that. The Office burger falls into the specialty burger category. The caramelized onions are a strong flavor. Fries are seasoned and served with Aioli.

    So beer is way amazing! But burger is overrated. Try Blue Palms in hollywood! or even the Kaliwild at 38 Degrees in Alhambra! Or the bucket in. Eagle rock!!! But hey parking is free so that is nice

    Get the Office burger. And if you're as annoyed by the seating situation as I am, stop by at 8:45 or 9 on a weekday. Lively enough but you don't have to hover for a booth.

    The best thing food wise is the fathers office burger. You get a mix of sweet and savory from the meat and bacon molasses sauce.

    Great for hanging out with friends after work, but can get crowded. Expect highish end food at decent prices for the tastiness you get. Fries come with a tasty aioli. We always get some to eat with

    Get the burger like everyone else says, but everything else on the menu is pretty damn good too. pick a favorite drink of choice and start socializing with friends or strangers if you like.

    Arguably the best burger in Los Angeles served alongside a lengthy list of craft brews at two perennially packed outposts. Read more

    First-timers take note: requesting ketchup is verboten, as it distracts from the beef’s flavor (and they don’t keep it around anyway). Read more

    Don't overlook the mixed drinks at this legendary LA beer-nerd establishment. The Manhattan (try it "up," in a martini glass) is made with Michter's Rye, Carpano Antica vermouth, and a marasche cherry

    With so many amazing rare beers on tap, I swear there's one for anything on the menu, even Beet salad! Ha!

    Best burgers! Very tasty fries and delicious bar. I recommend the office burger and side of fries.

    Great food, but they should make a burger w/ soy or no cheese for those lactose intolerant folks who enjoy this place also.

    Get the burger! They don't allow you to add, remove or substitute anything (a little pretentious, especially if you're allergic to something), but it's fantastic.

    The Office Burger medium rare might be the best burger I've ever had. Combine it with a Trumer Pilsner and you're going to have an experience.

    Not the most vegetarian-friendly, but there's generally a salad or two + fries + a special appetizer that works. But you come here for the large beer list. Much larger than the Santa Monica location.

    Despite the long waits and the crowds, the beer and staff make it worth your while. Oh, and that burger...is still one of the best uses of beef in town. Read more

    One of the best outdoor patios in Los Angeles. The burger is now a classic and one of the best around. Beer list is top-notch.

    A damn good burger. One and only one: the Office Burger. And don’t try to change a thing because menu alterations will be politely declined. Read more

    There's only one burger on the menu. It's a great one, but it's $12.50 (so-so fries are an extra $2.50). Don't ask for ketchup. Order at the bar. Seating is first come, first serve.
  • Rayshawn W.
    The roasted lamb taste very different from most. The meat is tender and taste similar to steak. This is lamb I most definitely recommend.

    Awesome beer selection. Should have a sweet veggie burger, but they don't. Get the beet salad, mushrooms or Brussel sprouts. And be prepared to fight for space.

    Love this place but be prepared to wait. You have to have stealth attack-like skills to snag a table when it's busy--like an animal circling its prey.

    Great selection of Belgian beer & tapas. Oh, and there sweet potato fries were perfectly crispy yet soft, with a side of awesome garlic aioli. Not bad...

    Go with a big group so u can splurge and order a burger fries and sweet potato fries to share! Don't forget the peach lambic beer to wash it all down

    Great beers and daily specials small plates are great and fries are excellent but bring your larger wallet because you'll want it all!

    If you want one of the few tables in the bar, you will have to circle the room until somebody gets ready to leave, then plunge into a vicious scrum. The more Unibroue you drink, the easier it is... Read more

    The burger is incredible (as is the beer selection). It gets crowded though and there is no reserved seating so be prepared to pounce on any open tables you see.

    The Office Burger lives up to the hype.. arugula, caramelized onions, bleu cheese on a French baguette bun... nom nom! Excellent draft beer selection too- try Drake's 1500 Pale Ale & Allagash White

    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.

    Father's Office Burger. They also serve a really tasty treat from the Helms bakery called a Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream pop. It's unique and not too sweet.

    I NEVER make complaints but this one takes the cake. Just asked for the burger w/o cheese cuz of my allergies & instead of kindly helping they referred to their food as Picassos artwork. Epic fail.
