Favorite Pie @ Pie n' Burger (Pasadena)

Looking to get some pies and wondering what the 'hounds favorites are at Pie n' Burger... (also, any flavors to avoid?)
My favorite is the coconut and lemon meringue. YUM! My friend loves the strawberry cake - I am just "eh" about it.
Last month there was a thread on Banana Cream pies at PNB. New York Times magazine voted PNB as best...firestorm shortly ensued amongst ChowHounders. Don't know how to add the thread. Give that one a shot.
We had the banana off the back off the NYT article voting it the best but have to say I wasn't floored. The great wait staff and an amazing Cobb Salad made up for it weirdly enough.. The fries that came with the kids plates were fantastic also.
Also, lots of people were eating things that were not on the menu, i.e. pancakes at 2PM etc. I think there is a secret handshake or something to get the "insider" menu.
This time of year? Banana or coconut. Summer time--the peach, good Lord! The peach!!
Also, the strawberry, and the ollieberry!!
I dislike, truly, their cherry pie. Canned fruit is gross.
