This place is exactly what you would imagine an old fashioned greasy burger diner to be in your mind. Their's a great nostalgia of the past at this place. They don't claim to do everything, they do a few things and they do them well....More

The hamburger was made like they to be made when I was a kid. Thinner pattie, tasty bun, topped with lettuce, pickle, and thousand island dressing. And then there was the pie! Lemon merengue pie, not syrupy sweet with a light crust, homemade this morning....More

Service was great! Burgers were pricey for what you get, hand mixed sodas were surprisingly good and of course the pie was excellent. The parking was so bad that we almost went somewhere else!

I was excited to try this classic Pasadena burger spot. Very disappointed. Difficult parking. Surly staff. Flat soda. Fries taste like fish. Don't do it.
