This is a must have on any trip to Pasadena. The burgers are really traditional burgers with Thousand Island. The pies are better than mom makes. The milkshakes are made to order. Oh yes and come back for breakfast! Pancakes are fluffy.

First, Pie N'Burger is CASH ONLY! Casual, local burger place located near Cal Tech and stores on Lake Ave. Sometimes street parking is available. If not, there is a parking garage nearby on Lake. As for food, the name says it all! They have burgers, sandwiches, sides (fries, salad, fruit, etc.) and pies! If you like grilled onions make sure... More

Old fashion burger joint with mostly counter seating. Menu on the wall. Cherry cokes and shakes made to order. Good selection of pies with homemade crust. Friendly service. Great find.

Went here for lunch when business had me in the area. The place was hopping at lunch time on a week day, but I immediately had a seat at the bar. Order a beer and cheeseburger and despite the crowd both arrived very quickly. The burger was solid - a good patty, fresh veggies, and piping hot. The fries were... More

First off- I wish that I'd been hungrier!! Ordered a hamburger and fries with a chocolate milkshake with whipped cream! I told our server that I love whipped cream and she piled it on AND brought me a small bowl of whipped cream!! I was in heaven. The hamburger was a real hamburger grilled just right. French fries were crispy... More

Best pies in Southern CA. The rhubarb is my top favorite (no strawberries, just rhubarb). Burgers get top rating year after year. Slightly expensive. A funky, small joint that doesn't take charge cards, but will accept checks-how old school is that?! Ate there many, many times.

Got a basic cheeseburger and fries and a piece of rhubarb pie à la mode. Everything was excellent. Recommended.

As advertised in the name, it has pies (many, many and the ones we had were superbly crafted, classic pies) and it has a good quality diner style burger. If you're watching calories, or if you're veggie or vegan...probably not your best option in Pasadena. Unless you're falling off the wagon. You could do a lot of damage here, and... More

Quite simply the best pie I've found outside of my mom's kitchen. If you like a tender, crispy crust and a high meringue pie...This is the spot. Recommend eating lunch elsewhere and stopping here for dessert. 6 different meringue pies...The Chocolate is my favorite. YUMMY!

If you like fresh eggs for breakfast and hot warm toast. Then this is the place to go to. As witness the huge number of students from CalTech that eat there. I have been eating here for more years than I acre to admit.
