This is on the edge of the Lake Avenue shopping district and a few blocks west of Cal Tec. The burgers are real, thick and juicy, and the ice tea is bottomless. I have not tried the other items, maybe after another 20 years i...More

We visited Pie n' Burger on our way up to Santa Barbara and we were not disappointed. The no fuss burgers were so tasty and the Thousand Island sauce was amazing! Only downside was the butterscotch pie wasn't available. Worth making the trip to.

It's a local place and has a counter. The owner should give the place some TLC and do a thorough cleaning of the cooking area. The hamburger was very juicy and tasty. I did not taste the pies but they did look good. Brought fond...More

Another Pasadena institution that has great burgers. Old school diner but everyone goes there for...what else, pie and burgers. They also have wonderful French Toast on weekend brunch but expect to wait for a table.
