We heard about Father’s Office from several people. It made Jeff’s best burgers of 2009 list, and I’m sure many others. Like In-N-Out, it was also recommended by a mostly-vegetarian friend. (It occurs to me that I should start asking all my vegetarian friends where they get their favorite burger.) Anyway, this thing was in a class by itself.
To start, we had a basket of sweet potato fries. Sweet potatoes are one of the few foods that Eliza doesn’t like, but even she loved these. They are served with some sort of garlic mayo, or aioli if you want to be fancy. Apparently, they won’t give you ketchup if you ask, but if someone gives me anything resembling mayo with fries, ketchup is the farthest thing from my mind.
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who think they know what a good burger tastes like, and those who have been to Father’s Office. I’m not sure what else to say about it. Jeff did get a better photo of it, though.
