Steak burger at Apple Pan

Queue up and ring around a U-shaped counter at this West LA institution, which has escaped time. Burger patties sizzle on the griddle that's been around for decades (since 1927, to be exact) and served by friendly waiters that seem to have been around for just as long. The go-to order: Don't miss the smoky Hickory burger ($7.10) slathered in house sauce. Pair with an order of crispy fries and save room for a slice of homemade apple pie (á la mode, all the way). Be prepared to pay cash only and, on a sweltering day, opt for a seat by the door at this no-AC joint.

The Apple Pan churns out a solid burger, but it isn't exactly worth traveling for. It's worth going to say you've gone and so you can join the conversation of how great Apple Pan is vs. how overrated Apple Pan is.
