One of the best burgers I ever had and also one of the greatest apple pies! The only thing is they don't accept cards. Ok, it's vintage but unnecessary.
I love classic/traditional places and this is certainly one of those. Be aware of places to seat. Only bar stools, I've been there with wife and two kids and was not easy to get places for four together.

You grab a bar stool around a horseshoe shaped counter and can see your food being prepared. I tried the hickory burger - try it but ask for less sauce - and fries, very enjoyable. The service is attentive and personable. They even pour the ketchup for you on a separate plate. Cokes come from a can and are poured into a paper cone cup. The apple pie is baked in the bake but was a little less than expectations, still recommended as part of the experience.

Good food and quality! It is like going back in time to the Richie Cunningham days to a horse shoe bar and paper hats. It is small and busy so expect to wait but it is well worth it. A true Los Angeles instituion.

Greasy, sloppy burgers, curt staff, no air conditioning, and lousy coffee.
This not cheap old fashioned burger joint used to be wonderful; now it sucks.
We visited a nearby multiplex movie house, and then stopped here. Got a street parking spot, walked into Apple Pan, and the day went to ruin.

Dream memories turned into a sweaty nightmare. Avoid this place like the Plague.

I have been coming to this place for years. Once you order a hickory burger with fries here, it will be etched in your food memory, and you will crave it like I am right now. It is a far drive for me, but may have to hoof it soon. The counter is always packed for good reason. I never have room for the pie, but it is made fresh there and peeps go wild for it. Someday maybe a slab of apple a la mode. If you love old school places that LA seems to tear down willy nilly then come here for a flashback.
