3229 Helms Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90403, United States

Despite its infamously strict dining policies (no substitutions, no subtractions, and no ketchup, to name a few), this lively gastropub still manages to draw crowds with its two specialties: a rotating selection of 36 craft beers, and the signature Office Burger, often named the best burger in Los Angeles. Reinvented by chef Sang Yoon in 2000, the restaurant is small and basic, containing little more than polished wood tables and chalkboard menus. The focus is on the beer and the burger, which is topped with caramelized onions, Gruyère and Maytag cheeses, applewood-smoked bacon compote, and arugula.
