It's a burger joint, but it needs updating. The wood paneling feels sticky with grease that hasn't been completely removed. Seating is tight, The revolving chairs at the counter were sized for people in 1940 not today. If you're lucky you can find one of...More

We were here for a nearby event for Pi Day (3-14-15 at 9:26:53) so decided to go in and have a late breakfast/early lunch. The restaurant is long and narrow with mostly counter seats and about five tables, some of which seat four and others...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.

The title pretty much says it all. It's not quite a counter diner, but it's not a restaurant either. The burgers are fantastic, and the pie tastes like mom's homemade.

the name of the restaurant is appropriate. The service is excellent AND the servers make your soft drinks what I guess is the old fashion way.....syrup. Add carbonated water, mix by hand and serve, sweet. Small hole in the wall with no reservations accepted. Worth...More

Pie N Burger is something of a throwback. The area around it has been gentrified and become very upscale but the atmosphere here is still pure '60s. The food is simple but delicious and the prices are very reasonable. I don't think that any item...More
