OMG! The burgers here are to kill for. As are the pies. Totally vintage experience. Maybe the best burgers in Passdena!

This is a standard diner joint, seemingly unaffected by the progress of time. Burger is featured in George Motz's Hamburger America, which is what led us here. Was just as expected--good diner burger. Did not try the pie this time.

Gosh, I guess I should've ordered the kool-aid, so I could've drank it and thought I was getting a decent meal. That's the only explanation I can imagine for all the great reviews I've seen for this place, because what I had was awful. All the food I had was clearly rolled out the back of a "Sysco" truck the... More

I love a little old fashioned place with a counter-and the burgers here are very good and the butterscotch pie is a must -but sells out often. They have great desserts and the servers are nice. cute little place

For all the overhyped, overblown and overrated restaurants in Pasadena, and let's not forget all the high end burger joints, the burger at Pie n' Burger goes toe to toe with ANY of these restaurants and their burger variations. The burger is big, but you don't need a double jointed jaw to eat it. It's cooked to a perfect medium... More

This is a wonderful old timey diner. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The menu was extensive enough for my family to have plenty of diverse choices, yet the size was not overwhelming. I had the chef's salad with their homemade Thousand Island dressing and it was wonderful. I also shared some pie with my daughter and it was... More

My family and I are big fans of the "Big Bang Theory. So being near Cal Tech we decided to check out the fictional characters haunts. We all shared the fresh Strawrberry and Lemon Meringue pies.They were fresh , warm and gooey. The price was I think around 5 dollars for each pie. The service was slow, when we were... More

Double-meat cheese burger reminiscent of In and Out, but better! A dive, but, who cares, the food is outstanding! I have heard the butterscotch pie is outstanding, but, when I went to order it, someone had just taken the last piece so, I tried the fresh blackberry pie . . . outstanding! Additionally, if you ask for a Coke, it... More

An old style, they've been there over 50 years, hamburger "joint" style restaurant. I liked the burger, but would have liked it better with a little less of their thousand island. Don't get me wrong, it was good. Just too much dressing, which is why the burger is "drippy" when you eat it. Do not order a cheese burger because... More

I drop by and bought a strawberry pie. Nice presentation but it was not great. The strawberry was fresh but the pie itself was not great, the crust was a flop, next time I will buy fresh strawberry and make my own.
