outstanding burgers

Converted large bakery plant (Helms Bakery) to shops and restaurants. FREE valet parking. Large selection of beers on tap. Outstanding burgers and fries. No substitutions or changes allowed on your burger order. Also had a side of their mushrooms – very good. Not cheap.

Father's Office is a well known Craft beer and food bar located in LA. He has several rules which I don't mind 1. No Ketchup. I don't find this to be a problem as the aioli he serves is tasty 2. No substitutions. He wants you to enjoy what he thinks is perfect burger. It is so I don't want... More

When I visit my son in LA,since he works around the corner from FO,we usually end up there for a bite and a beer. Is it a little pretentious? Maybe but the food is very good (even without ketchup) and they have a great beer selection. This visit just had apps- fantastic mushrooms and fries. Chorizo balls very good, just... More

I like that they make a burger and you get it the way they make it…pick something off if you don't like it. However, it is probably off-putting to many. We were there early on Sunday night so it was a great, relaxed environment and the service was exceptional. The beer selections were amazing. I usually drink wine but they... More

We went on the recommendation of a friend because the burger here was food network worthy. Dislikes were that you order at the bar and get a number on your table. The inside while very cool was so noisy we sat outside which was nice ...sorry but we all like ketchup with our fries...bring your own...The Burger said it had... More

This place was great. There is a really great atmosphere here. There's great outdoor seating too. Really huge tables outside for big parties, which is great. There is a smallish food menu, but all of it wonderful. My friends and I ordered a few dishes and shared them and they were all great. I think you could probably get anything... More

Excellent food, including a juicy skirt steak, a very good smoked eel, excellent thin cut fries, nice salads. In the end everything we had was really good. Large selection of beers, nice casual place, perfect to meet friends. Very noisy inside, but nice tables outside. You need to order and pay for you food at the counter, and they will... More

No ketchup with your fries. They serve their burgers one way and you take it or leave it. Definitely not worth the hype or the price!

Met up with friends here for some drinks after work. Excellent beer selection. Apps were really good too. Nice outdoor seating and plenty of parking. Have been several times to meet up with friends when I'm in town. Will likely visit again!
