Ford's Filling Station - Culver City

Ford's Filling Station in Culver City was a back up choice when we discovered that Father's Office wasn't open during the week for lunch. It was a happy backup. We arrived early and got a great seat outside in the shade. Our table overlooked the Culver City Blvd. as the lunch crowd descended from the nearby studios.

I ordered a Pub Burger with Onion Rings ($16). The onion rings were lovely, large and crunchy. Made from red onions and beer-battered, they were very good.

The burger was also a treat. A half-pound patty, hand-ground on site from organic beef, it was very tasty indeed. It was prepared to a perfect medium. The grilled, sweet onions blended nicely with the blue cheese. Everything sat on an egg bun with onions baked in the top.

My wife Pat had read that the locals loved the burger and I can see why it was true. A definite winner.
