Pie N Burger
For the record this is our first Post, and the first spot on our tour de fork around the greater Los Angeles area. We are the love prawns, consisting of myself, Lisa, and new recruits Doherty and Kris. Doherty is actually spelled Duarte, but since I am writing the first post he is going to have to deal with it.
Pie and Burger is a charming little spot in Pasadena that I consider a living time machine. It offers a large selection of homemade pies and even offers an original soda fountain where syrup is pumped and stirred with soda water. The place was sparsely inhabited by locals who read the paper and chatted with the friendly waitresses behind the diner's front counter. Aside from the comfortable atmosphere which was a plus, the food was just outstanding. The menu is small, just burgers, fries, sandwiches, and pie. Lisa and I indulged in Cheeseburgers, coconut cream pie, and an order of fries that we shared. Honestly, besides Tyler's in Palm Springs, this is one of the best burgers I've ever had. I finished mine in minutes and polished off the rest of Lisa's as well. The fries were equally good. They were the fat thick fries that you could use to club a burglar, loved them. The portion of coconut cream pie was huge; big enough to share. This Place gets the thumbs up for sure.
