Hating on Father's Office Burger
- Robert Lu
Cloyingly sweet caramelized onions overwhelm the flavor of everything else on the burger.
Also, the roll is inferior to most of the $2.00 banh mi joints on Valley Blvd, or even a Jack in the Box ciabatta. Can't have a great sandwich without great bread. Like double-baked rye for Langer's, Amoroso for cheesesteak, or toasted sesame roll for Top Dog.
Props for the beer selection, though.
I was about to tear you a new one but then i started reading the posts below . . . I was there two months ago and it was fine as always . . . but maybe it is indeed slipping . . . thank God for 25 degrees.
PS - what were you thinking eating with the ciabatta burger? Those commercials are so obnoxious . . .
I was so excited to finally try out the Father's Office burger. In theory, it's a FANTASTIC burger, but the execution? eh.... the carmelized onions were overpowering and I could barely taste the blue cheese.
The burger's good -- or was several months ago on my visit -- but there are others I'd rather have, such as the Pug at the Hungry Cat.
