Russell's Pasadena [moved from Los Angeles board]

I'm an old Russell's fan ..

my parents use to take me there in the late 50's when they were in Bixby Knolls, later years I went to their Naples (long beach) location and their burgers and pies were always great.

been living in the Northeast for many years now - and crave their fresh ollieberry and strawberry pies. all fresh fruit with a glaze over the berries and served with whipped cream or ice cream.

so can anyone help me with the recipe? want to make this for my wife for mothers day........

  1. I too loved going to Russell's back in the day - I used to go to the one on Atlantic, in Long Beach. The burgers....and those hash browns...oh boy !

    I never tried the pie so I have no clue, but have you tried contacting the restaurant ? The one in Pasadena is still there. They may be able to help with a recipe or at least provide some clues, if you give them some nice compliments and explain the situation.
