Pie 'N Burger - Still Amazing
On a quick swing through LA last week I made a stop at one of the burger spots featured in my upcoming book Hamburger America, the timeless Pie 'N Burger in Pasadena. A vestige of the rich diner past of Southern California, Pie 'N Burger still serves fresh ground, griddled burgers delivered to your spot at the Formica wood-grain counter wrapped in wax paper. I dragged some friends along and they were stunned by the quality of the burger. There are many diner standards on the menu but the burger to order here is the double-double, served with lettuce, pickles, and their homemade thousand island dressing. So greasy, and so good. Take note of the buttermilk on the menu.
