Great Burgers

If I'm driving by Apple Pan, and by driving by I mean heading North or South on the 5 or 405 at the right time of day to avoid traffic, then I'll go the extra few miles to get a great burger & piece of pie. Parking can definitely be an issue with the location, so plan on circling the... read more

I spent my childhood through my twenties as almost a fixture at the Apple Pan. I knew all of the waiters by name and they taught me about burgers and pies. The Pan was and still is crowded during lunch and dinner time. It's counter only and seating was done on the honour system with the first to arrive was... More

The Apple Pan is an institution! It is classic LA...unchanged after decades and serves up one of the best burgers I have tasted anywhere, ever. All seats are bar style, around a U-shaped counter with the "kitchen" (grill) in the center. You wait your turn to take a seat, and there is limited seating (about 30 or fewer seats in... More

Simply the best. Try to go early, we could be waiting in line. From the outside we would never guess how good it is. The place has been there forever. Great burgers and Fries. Make to sure to leave the room for the Apple Pie.

Apple Pan was rated as one of the nations best burgers in the recent past. I wholeheartedly agree. Order the burgers as on the menu and you will not be disappointed. Fries were perfect, crispy but not overdone. Don't forget the apple pie a la mode for dessert if you have room!

I don't understand what the big hype is here. It tastes like a an average burger. With lots of ketchup on it. I'd rather go elsewhere to get a better burger. Just a simple burger I guess. Not what you would call a gourmet burger. Parking here sucks. The parking behind the restaurant is very limited and fills up quick.... More

For many years, growing up in LA, my family and I used to go to The Apple Pan every saturday. By the time we sat down at the counter, the waiters already had our "usual" orders ready to go. After moving to NC, every LA trip we made was always capped off by a Hickory burger, a root beer, and... More

I was taken here by a friend who has be going here for over 40 years. I hear that it hasn't changed a bit and you wouldn't want it to. You have to wait in line for a while. Then you sit around the cooking area. The guys are friendly and funny to interact with. The hickory burger was majestic.... More

Thanks to Huell Howser's great review we decided to try this place and we were not disappointed. Great food and quick service. Only bad part is how you get your seat. You have to stand behind people and wait for them to finish eating and then grab their seats when they leave. Wish they had a sign in to eliminate... More
