Another Pasadena institution that has great burgers. Old school diner but everyone goes there for...what else, pie and burgers. They also have wonderful French Toast on weekend brunch but expect to wait for a table.

Lunched today at this long-time Pasadena favorite. My chili dog was excellent, an oversized dog with copious chili. My side order of French fries was delicious; with the chili dog they covered the entire serving platter. I didn't feel like having dessert, but from past...More

When you walk into a restaurant and see a cash register that is older that is at least 40 years old, something good must be going on. Pie and Burger dates from the early 60s and not much has changed to the original diner since...More

I'm not sure it was worth the wait, but the food was plentiful and good. Sadly, the fries were not hot. The blueberry pie was outstanding.

Old-School charm in Pasadena. A throwback to the 70's. They even had The Love Boat playing on the TV set behind the bar seating. Very, very good burgers and fries, made fresh to order. We also bought a fresh whole apple pie to go. My...More

I went here at 9am. There was only two people seated in the whole place. All I wanted was a simple burger and fries. 15 minutes later (no I am not exaggerating) I finally got my food. It was nice but very expensive for what...More

Wanted to see why Food Network named this the number 3 burger in America. I think it has more to do with the fact that it's quaint and still does things the old-fashioned way. They calculate the tax by hand and the cash register is...More
