Great pie!

I'm not sure it was worth the wait, but the food was plentiful and good. Sadly, the fries were not hot. The blueberry pie was outstanding.

Old-School charm in Pasadena. A throwback to the 70's. They even had The Love Boat playing on the TV set behind the bar seating. Very, very good burgers and fries, made fresh to order. We also bought a fresh whole apple pie to go. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars was that the men's bathroom was as... More

I went here at 9am. There was only two people seated in the whole place. All I wanted was a simple burger and fries. 15 minutes later (no I am not exaggerating) I finally got my food. It was nice but very expensive for what you get. You'll get 5 burgers at In-n-out for the same price.

Wanted to see why Food Network named this the number 3 burger in America. I think it has more to do with the fact that it's quaint and still does things the old-fashioned way. They calculate the tax by hand and the cash register is the old-fashioned push button kind. As for the food, it was really nothing special. The... More

Pie n' Burger looks like an old school diner. On the day of our visit, there wee lots and lots of people waiting to be seated. Fortunately, we managed to arrive right before the lunch rush. Pie n' Burger has a good sized menu consisting of typical diner fair including breakfast and lunch/dinner items. I ordered a classic burger and... More

Everyone said - you HAVE to go here so we did. Breakfast; was really very ordinary. Nothing special except the vintage look of the restaurant which I am assuming is why "we HAD" to go there. Prices were also high for just breakfast.

GREAT food, INCREDIBLE pie. We have been for pie many times and decided to try their breakfast. Huge portions, thin fluffy pancakes, HOMEMADE bread....what more can I say. The counter is the place to sit to truly enjoy this great diner. Of course, you must leave room after every meal here for the pie. Fresh, delicious and huge slices are... More

After seeing the premiere episode of Foodnetwork's show, "Top 5," in which Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian and Sunny Anderson named the top 5 burger eateries in the country, which included Pie n' Burger, we knew we had to go there! As we expected, the place was full, but the wait wasn't too long, and it was definitely worth it. The... More
