A blast from the past

A diner that has been around for many decades but the main event here is the burgers and there's little else on the menu. The joint, which only has counter seating, gets crowded so be prepared to wait but it's worth it. Are these the best burgers I've ever had? No but they are good and the... read more

This was such a fun food experience. We got there before opening and waited patiently. An older couple also turned up to wait the 5-10 minutes. We ended up sitting next to them and they had come here back in the 50's when they lived in LA. They confirmed it hadn't changed much in all that time. Got talking to... More

Super simple, very cool experience. You basically seat yourself on the honor system, order, eat, pay and leave... Burger was great, as was cream soda. Highly recommended!

The Apple Pan hasn't changed at all for 30 years except that the energetic and intense servers I still recognize have a little more grey hair. I don't understand the lounge" zealots and the "in and..." Zealots and all the other nuvo-gourmet burger lovers when you will find the absolute best burger in Los Angeles, every single time at Apple... More

I have been going here since 1980 and nothing has changed! The same waiters even! Don't even THINK of ordering anything but the Hickory Burger with cheese! It is the best hamburger I have ever had in my life; and I LOVE hamburgers! Great fries too and ALL of the pies are out of this world! The coffee is even... More

Every neighborhood has a burger place like this. As I'm "Coming From TO (Toronto)", it has to be Johnny's Burgers - at least for us east end boys. In this part of LA, it's clearly the Apple Pan. This is a pretty straight up diner style, counter service, kinda place. Minimal menu and with quick service that comes with a... More

Been going here for decades. The place is always packed but worth the wait. It's quite the scene to watch the counter guys and the cooks crank out the food. Service is attentive and matter of fact. Burgers of course are amazing but I crave their white meat Tuna sandwich along with well done fries, olives and sweet pickles. To... More

Great counterman sets the scene. The place is a throw back to the 1940's in the best way. Everything is fresh. Limited menu. Save room for dessert.Great burgers!

Ok this place is seriosly a hidden secret known only to the locals. Best burger and pie spot to have ever existed. Get the Hickory burger and apple pie and u will not be dissapointed. Restaurant has a cool vibe as its a wrap around counter seating only. Service is always fast and servers are exceptional.
