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.

This is one of the most expensive places we have eaten for a rundown diner. Our bill was over $50.00 for a burger with fries and water, a patty melt with fries and water, and a bowl of chili with water to drink and a chocolate shake. They do not have regular soft drinks, they make their own. The atmosphere... More

Great burgers, amazing pumpkin pie, yummy grilled cheese. No frills. Expect to wait. Very busy. Can't wait to try other types of pie.

I read a review once written by a person who went to a famous sea food restaurant in Boston and complained about her steak. I heard a young woman complain about Rome, Italy, on a travel show because everything there was so old. And I read a review by a person complaining that Pie N' Berger servers were not as... More

OK, supposedly this place has been on TV and I totally get it. What a great burger...very flavorful, quite fresh, tasty meat, great homemade sauce and cooked to perfection with melty cheese. And the cheesecake slice was of the variety that could rally a person to live for more. Well worth the walk of a mile or so each way... More

I cannot speak for pies and burgers but their breakfast was not great. The menu completely lacks inspired or interesting entrees. We settled for two scrambled eggs with sausage and bacon with hash browns. It was not bad but you cannot really mess this up. The flavor of the hash browns was off, perhaps the oil was rancid. The coffee... More

I had been wanting to go to Pie n Burger for over a year. The time finally arrived and I was so disappointed. It is overrated and expensive. It cost over $30 for 2 burgers and fries. There was nothing special about the burgers. I tried to rationalize the price considering the overhead is low. Old establishment no reason for... More
