LA Weekly's Description

The top and bottom buns of an Apple Pan burger are crisped and slightly oily, crunchy at the edges, working toward a near-complete softness at the middle; the pickles are resilient dill chips; the sheaf of fresh iceberg lettuce provides a dozen-layered crispness at the core. The beef, generally cooked to a perfect, pink-centered medium, is juicy and full flavored; the cheese, half melted to a kind of sharp graininess, is good Tillamook Cheddar. And come dessert time, no matter how many waiting people may be crowded in behind you, no matter how hungrily they stare at your enormous slice of pie, the veteran countermen will always draw you another cup of coffee from the gas-fired urn and hand it over with a dram of fresh, heavy cream. My family has been regulars at least since Lew Alcindor played freshman ball.

    It is what it is, and its great authentic grill burgers. Its kitsch, old fashion, crowded and pure. I adore it. I was taken there initially by my very lovely friends who I took to a Grateful Dead Concert. They had the munchies, and I had a contact high. This by no means takes away from its lusciousness..

    I lover burgers. L.A. has the best burgers in the country. Nowhere even compares. This place has great hamburgers. It's very simple. They have the same waiters from when I was a kid.

    A West LA institution: typical diner fare without typical diner taste. [Eater 38 Member]

    One of L.A.'s greatest culinary legacies is the California lunchroom burger, the multi-layered composition of iceberg lettuce, pickles and slightly underripe tomatoes.

    You must try their hickory burger with hickory sauce. Finish it off with a banana cream pie and you're in heaven.
