If you don't agree with the title of my review than I am so sorry for your ignorance. Everything about the Apple Pan is perfect. It's extremely old school, most of the waiters have been working there for decades and they take their jobs seriously. This is not the kind of place to meet for a long meal, this place... More

Ok, the Apple Pan will never win a Michelin star but it's still the greatest. This Place has not changed a thing in over 70 years because it just doesn't need to. After all, why mess with perfection. The hickory burger is still the best burger in America, the fries awesome, the pie is killer, the memories can't be replaced.... More

A real diner that has survived since 1947, the very same year, at age 4, my parents moved to California. Interesting location, across from a major, modern mall. While the burger was good, not great, I thought it was over priced at $7 for what you get. Often rated as the top burger in Los Angeles, I disagree. Best burger... More

It is a simple place, well located but the focus is the food, they are excellent, in quality, size, speed of service, etc. There is not tables, just a big counter where people rotates very fast, not long lines. Be aware that you can use only cash. Next time in LA I will go again...

Sometimes reviewers can be ruthless. I guess we all want to believe that ours is The Final Word on a subject rather than just one more drop in the endless stream of subjective opinions. We want what we want for the price tag we want it, and when we don't get our way, we can become pretty venomous. Sometimes I... More

The idiom 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' has never rang so true as it does with Apple Pan. There is nothing fancy about AP: not the decor, the food, nor the men working there. This no-frills place is a time capsule from an era when burgers were prepared with simple (and fresh) ingredients and if you want to... More

I had heard of it for many years but never been here. Was in the area at lunch time so...Greeted immediately at the door, counterman very attentive. He took my order right away, and it seemed like just a few seconds before my fries arrived-hot and crispy on the outside, nicely done on the inside. The burger arrived shortly after,... More

After reading reviews and seeing this on either the food or travel channel decided to give it a try. High prices for average at best food. Burgers are ok but to be honest not much better than some fast food palces. Don't bother asking for ice cream with your pie it is an extra $2.00 and there is so little... More
