Apple Pan, Burger & fries $10

okay okay, $9.85, with tip it was $12. I liked it, but it was small and had to much lettuce and to much of the hickory sauce. I love 26 Beach, I think it is a 1/2 lb angus burger and it comes with fries or salad for $10, toppings are extra, but it is huge & they make their own buns and cut their own fries. I think I even like, I know I like Cassell's better than Apple Pan. Heck the Double Double combo at In & Out is under $6.50. What is everyone fascination with Apple Pan, is it nostalgia because you grew up on them?

  1. Yes, same reason there is a fascination with Tito's Tacos, only at least the food is edible at Apple Pan.

      See, now I like Tito's, for what it is! Guess it is what you like, to each his own.

    2. i agree. i think it's the whole schtick of the place, that they make everything just the way they did all those years ago. plus it's a landmark.

      1. I haven't had a beef burger in a long time, so I can't comment. I prefer Billy's Grill's tuna burger, anyhow.
        Apple pan fried were just so not special when I had them.

        the apple pie is just not great. I have no clue why it is so famous.

        the banana cream pie, though that's a revelation! Creamy, silky, bananas everywhere, ooey gooey goodness. Its a thing of beauty.

          oh, that's what i learned very early on, the apple pie there stink to high hell.

          the cream pies are where it's at. and also the pecan pie with some of that whipped cream.

          burgers are swell, not the greatest, but it's a neighborhood joint of sorts. prices are very high (which i've discussed before) and the fries are garbage too.;

          1. I love the hickory burger and the thick amount of lettuce seems to ballance out the grease but it is way - way overpriced.
