Father’s Office, you elitist, inconsistent, snobby jerks. You sit high and mighty on your throne of lies as having the best burgers in L.A., and deny the peasants and serfs known as your customers the right to use ketchup. You arrogantly charge $14 for the burgers and think you’re giving the commoners a bargain. And for all your hoity-toity attitude and service, I’ve gotten a significantly different experience from the same burger on each visit. What gives?
Anyways, I have to admit, despite all the ranting from the previous paragraph, the Office Burger was pretty damn good on this visit. There was a time not too long ago when I was amongst the believers of this burger being the best in L.A. Then the quality went down the next two visits. The it went up again. Then down. I just didn’t know what to believe in anymore. But back to this visit – the patty was a perfect medium rare, the caramelized onions were delicious, and the cheese was just the right amount. It’s definitely on the right side again, but I reserve judgment on the Office Burger being in the upper echelon of burgers until it becomes more consistent. For this visit, however, it was very good.
