While I think the burgers are fine. Not the greatest. Fries not crisp but good. But oh my the pie is delicious. Full of fruit, little sauce and a flaky crust. It takes cash only so be prepared. Go for the Pie.

Came here to try what an Internet list called the "best burger in LA". It's about a block east of the busy shopping street of Lake Avenue. Small and narrow, it's got mostly counter seating and looks a bit like an old-style burger place. No...More

This is a must have on any trip to Pasadena. The burgers are really traditional burgers with Thousand Island. The pies are better than mom makes. The milkshakes are made to order. Oh yes and come back for breakfast! Pancakes are fluffy.

Best pies in Southern CA. The rhubarb is my top favorite (no strawberries, just rhubarb). Burgers get top rating year after year. Slightly expensive. A funky, small joint that doesn't take charge cards, but will accept checks-how old school is that?! Ate there many, many...More

Got a basic cheeseburger and fries and a piece of rhubarb pie à la mode. Everything was excellent. Recommended.

As advertised in the name, it has pies (many, many and the ones we had were superbly crafted, classic pies) and it has a good quality diner style burger. If you're watching calories, or if you're veggie or vegan...probably not your best option in Pasadena....More
