First, VERY difficult to get a parking space, very confusing and with all of the posted city signage very intimidating. If I weren't meeting a fried who chose this location as well as hoping for a GREAT experience, I wouldn't have toiled around looking for...More

This restaurant has been around a long time and shows it. The decor is definitely 60s diner style. The burgers are great...luckily they are wrapped in paper, which makes them easier to eat. Fries are good. Service is diner style - only OK. There are...More

Hubby and I ate Sunday brunch. He had bacon and eggs with hashbrowns and real rye toast - he was thrilled to be eating rye toast with marmalade! I had a short stack (2 ) of thin pancakes. These were spectacular! They were huge, like...More

I had not eaten at Pie 'N Burger for at least 20 years, so I was curious to check it out. The restaurant is in dire need of updating and looks pretty grimy inside. I hesitated to eat there, though curiosity won me over so...More

The quintessential diner with a "make yourself right at home" feel. The cheeseburger and the cheesecake were literal perfection (I have a deep and intimate knowledge of both 😉). Pasadena has a lot of pretty, cool and delicious restaurants, but if you've been wandering all...More

The wonderful GF suggested this place for a late lunch, and, as always, she was right on. The decor of the place was like something out of High School Confidential, a long counter and a bunch of small tables, with big menu boards to help...More

This is a venerable old diner in Pasadena and has been around since the early 1960s. If you visit at the weekend, you can expect to wait. However, what you get is a tasty burger. Nothing too spectacular, but still something to savor. The french...More

My husband & I went to Pie 'n Burger last week for lunch. We hadn't been there in many years since it's located on the opposite side of town from where we live. It's a Pasadena "institution" priding itself on local ownership, long-term staff, delicious...More
