Last night I finally had a chance to go to Father’s Office in Santa Monica. I keep seeing their name on lists of “Best Burgers in LA”. So I order “The Office Burger” and a side of Frites. The fries were more like warm potato straws, interesting change of pace, but not my fry of choice. Now the burger, the bun was fresh, the grilled onions, while good, were a little overwhelming. The biggest problem was the burger itself. The patty had the consistence of meatloaf. Very dense and over ground, like meat particleboard. And while I like that for meatloaf, I hate it in burgers. So I won’t be going back. The pork-pie hatted hipster crowd did help either. But if the food rocked I could deal with that, but it doesn’t.
