We went to Apple Pan because of its history and because so many lists have it among the best burgers in Los Angeles. I have to say I found it really ordinary. And far too expensive. But you only know if you try. The place and staff, though, really great.

This place has very very limited seating. It's all counter. We were lucky enough when we got there to find two seats right away. And this was on a Sunday night. Others after us had to stand around behind us and wait until a seat opened up. Service is fast and friendly. I don;t think they really want you to... More

Sitting at the counter- that's all there is - and looking out the window, you almost expect to see an old street car role by. The Apple Pan is frozen in time in the most wonderful way. A Los Angeles institution for over 50 years, who knows why it took me all of them to finally take the time to... More

I have been eating at Apple Pan for 50 years! For decades because it was the best burger in town, and for the last decade because of nostalgia, but my most recent visit will sadly be my last. I have accepted the tired atmosphere of the restaurant and its unfriendly service because I refused to allow my better judgement to... More

I went to Apple Pan because I saw it on the travel channel. I liked the old feel of the restaurant. It's really small with no tables and only about 20 places to sit. I bought a burger and a piece of pie. The service was real good but I thought the food was only ok.

This is simply and seriously the best burger joint in town, I am loving this! Take out or eat in if you can, and don't forget to take home a pie 🙏

The Apple Pan is my favorite place to eat in LA--the simplicity of it and excellence of the never-changing menu makes it a welcome change from trendy LA eateries. Since the 1920's this place has served wonderful burgers and sandwiches with their famous apple pie to a never-ending line of happy customers. It's first come first serve and often you... More

Hickory Burger, Apple pie, and the Tuna sandwich are always good. Apple pie is always great, and the coffee is excellent.

As a foreign, I felt at home! This place is simple, but very cozy. Try the burger and the apple pie! But be sure to get there early, after 9PM you won't be able to have a piece of apple pie. I will definitely visit this place if I am in town.

Stopped here for lunch by myself on a recommendation. I normally am not comfortable dining alone but in this place I didn't mind. I went for the hickory cheeseburger which was very good, and very filling. The fries looked great but I abstained, but I did have a Dr. Pepper which I haven't had in years- love the cup holder...
