Truly a throwback to a time when quality and consistency mattered. Burgers are made from choice beef, buns are perfect and grill toasted just right, crispy iceberg lettuce, condiments exceptionally balanced - all tight wrapped in paper so it sits open faced and is presented on its side. Try the Hickory Burger with cheese. Burger perfection. Don't take my word for it - this establishment was number1 in the heralded book Burger America. After your burger, you MUST have a slice of pie. All are good, some are great. Of the latter: boysenberry, bananna cream, and good old apple are high on the list.

West L.A. institution. Owner held out against developers so area built up around him. Old school hamburger joint with great homemade pies. Get yours a la mode!

This is an original....an old time diner counter in the center of West LA. The strategy is...you wait behind the seat you want (sometimes 3 people deep) and wait for your person to leave....slip in and order. Order the Hickory Burger or the Steak Burger, don't forget the excellent fries and Apple or Banana creme pies. This is real Americana. The Hickory Burger is my favorite burger although the Steak Burger is also great. Excellent fries and pies. This is real Americana....one of the original diners in Los Angeles and the guys behind the counter have been here 30 years+.

Great burgers, fries, and apple pie. What better than that? You might have to wait to get a seat at the bar (there is only bar seating). But worth the wait. Don't go with a big group of people. Two or three.

I've been just once in Apple Pan because it was my last day in United States. If you like hamburgers.... this is the best place
