LA Weekly's Description

This is the best neighborhood hamburger joint in a neighborhood that includes Caltech, which means the guy next to you may be reading a physics proof over his chili size as if it were the morning paper. When compressed by the act of eating, a Pie ‘N Burger hamburger leaks thick, pink dressing, and the slice of American cheese, if you have ordered a cheeseburger, does not melt into the patty, but stands glossily aloof. And the exquisitely crunchy patty melt is careful without being insipid, oozy in just the right way, and sweetened by its judicious load of grilled onions When the fruit is in season, don't miss a cut of the seasonal, epochal fresh-strawberry pie.

    They still make their soda by hand, they pump in the Coke syrup and add soda water. Not as good as todays coke but its authentic

    It must be hard competing with In-N-Out, but this restaurant has been holding its own since 1963. Waitresses who know you by name and a perfectly seared patty indicate precisely why.

    Cash only. Also, the fries is enough for 2 people. You've been warned. Ha

    Can’t decide what to order? George Motz, host of Travel Channel’s Burger Land, recommends the ‘double-double’ burger.

    For Breakfast: Short stack fluffy, hash browns well done, side of bacon a must and coffee...you will leave full and happy!!
