Father’s Office Review

Father’s Office
3229 Helms Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90034

Currently holding two prime locations in Santa Monica and Culver City, this unique joint not only has one of the most talked about burgers in Los Angeles but also offers a great selection of exclusive beers. This particular location of Father’s Office [FO] has a large outside patio, which we gladly took advantage of on a beautiful Friday afternoon. Getting carded at the entrance this early in the day did catch me a bit off guard … I guess calling this a family restaurant is out of the question.

Walking up to the counter, we knew we wanted 3 Father’s Office Famous Burgers and a Basket of their Sweet Potato Fries. We had no idea that such simple order would end up being such a difficult task. Turns out this place is very particular when it comes to their food. They do not carry condiments such as ketchup or ranch. They do not carry iced tea or lemonade. Weird. They do not let you make any substitutions to their one and only signature burger – and let me tell you, you do not want it any other way.

Sweet Potato Fries – WOW! Simply Amazing. Fried to perfection with duck fat and served with aioli [honestly I think that's the only sauce they offer]. Hands down, the best sweet potato fries ever! Do not leave without trying them!

FO famous burger – the avant-garde of burgers! Served on french bread, cooked to perfection with caramelized onions, arugula, and Gruyère cheese. The patty, mix of ground beef and bacon, is juicy and absolutely mouth watering. The sweetness of barbecue sauce combined with the cheese and the onions really bring out the flavor in the meat; while the fresh greens make the burger light and easy to finish. I couldn’t stop eating.

Overall we had a great experience at this trendy, fancy burger restaurant. Having said that, this is not your typical burger. So if you don’t mind the lack of condiments, and can appreciate someone’s set-in-stone creativity, do give Father’s Office a try. Their burgers are one of a kind. Next time we’ll just bring our own ketchup.
