Hands down the best burger I've ever had. i think it tasted 100 x better for me and my date because we were starving AND were craving for meat. I'm really curious how they made it so delicious. This is probably the first burger I enjoyed without ketchup. We were lucky enough to find a place to sit at the bar on a busy Friday night. People around us were social. The atmosphere is pretty loud. Beer selection looked pretty good (I'm not a beer person). Good luck finding a place to eat during winter on a busy night. I give it 5 stars for the food and the fun experience I had with my date in March :)

The beer selection is amazing and I like how you can just day drink out on the porch while you enjoy people watching and the weather. Brussel sprouts here are great. The house burgers are really good here. The sweet potato fries here are great and come in a big basket. I would be shocked if the rest of the food wasn't as amazing. I think this is our go to hang out spot in LA when the weather is nice.

The thing about me and burgers is that nothing can beat in & out's animal style cheeseburger with chopped chili's and whole grilled onions -in both quality and price. So that's where my indifference for FO lied. Time after time people rave on and on about their burger. I never found anything addicting about it. Since this place is across the street from my friends' apt, it's always our go-to food place. And I always refused to join. So, my cousin was in town from Canada and she said she loves burgers so I took both and her bf there. I drove straight there and was hungry so I was forced to order something there. I got the beet salad and OMG it was so good. Huge pieces of vinegared beets hidden in a mound of evenly dressed salad leaves- wow! Her bf got the cheese platter. To my surprise, it came with 4 small pieces of cheese. L O L. But it was darn good spread on the slices of olive bread. Also a great selection of different types of beer! Basically don't come here so narrow minded like I was. Try other things on the menu besides the "acclaimed" FO burger. Def try a beer. And don't come hungry haha unless you want to spend $30+ on just yourself

I have a lot of friends coming in to visit as of late and this has just become my go to. Great food, great drinks and great ambience. The burger is delicious and so are the pork rinds. Beer menu is amaze balls. This location also does cocktails as well

This place is an enjoyable combination of high-end and casual. The sleek, industrial-chic decor and esoteric dishes and beers make the restaurant feel as if it's intended for a specific income bracket. Still, at the end of the day, the place is about simply serving delicious burgers and beers, which it does remarkably well. You can find just about any beer you want, either on tap or bottled. The burgers are crazy good and juicy, topped with gruyere and maytag bleu cheese which produces and creamy texture and pungent taste. It's also casual in that you order only at the bar and are beholden to no wait staff, yet all of the bartenders are equally nice and accommodating.

I had reservations on a Tuesday night for a celebratory dinner with my family. After 20 minutes we FINALLY got a table. We were treated dismissively by an extremely slow wait staff. They messed up our order and the food we got was overpriced and mediocre at best.

Finally made it here the other night to try the famed Father's Office burger. It lived up to all expectations! It was the perfect combination of classic burger components, nothing fancy, just good old fashioned hamburger. No substitutions allowed. This is a really cool little spot and I am looking forward to going back to try other things.
