The Hollywood original opened in Santa Monica in 2013 and brought with it excellent burgers, great craft beer, and a space where you can feel truly free from all the trappings of downtown. As far as the burgers go, our favorite is the brie-and-fig-jam-topped Six Weeker, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them - particularly when they’re all half-off during Happy Hour.

The Father’s Office burger (in Santa Monica and Culver City) is amazing. If you don’t know that, you don’t get it.
Cha Cha Chicken
An outdoor, island-like Caribbean BYOB that’s a great time. In Santa Monica, no less.
