Weekly Dish Recommendation – Burger at Father’s Office in LA

By mahir | November 9, 2010

My recommendation for this week is for an all-American classic: the perfect burger.  The Office Burger at Father’s Office in Culver City, LA is a must try!  I love the salty carmelized onions and bacon.  And the Maytag blue cheese, gruyere, and arugula makes this a truly great burger.  They really know what they’re doing at Father’s Office, so stop on by for a delicious dinner.  And don’t forget a side of fries!
