Pie n' Burger; Or, This Is The Pie They Serve In Heaven

Would you take a look at this pie? I mean, seriously, pie this beautiful should not be legal, but apparently it is, and you can buy it by the slice at Pie n' Burger in Pasadena, California.

If you like pie (and who doesn't?) and you are within driving range of Pasadena, then you must visit Pie n' Burger.  And if you love pie, then just get on a plane and come here tomorrow.

If you are going to visit Pie n' Burger, I recommend two strategies:

1. Arrive around 8:45 p.m. and order a slice of boysenberry pie with ice cream. You will be tempted by the other selections - which are admittedly all excellent - but if you know what is good for you, you will order the boysenberry pie.

2. Go for lunch or dinner but at a weird hour (like 2:30 for lunch, or 4:47 for dinner). Sit at the counter with your date, friend, etc. Order ONE patty melt and ONE order of fries - this is all you need. Do not finish the fries because you have to save room for dessert. Then, order a slice of boysenberry pie with ice cream (see #1, above). When the waitress asks, "Just one slice for the two of you?" give her your best look of horror/shock/confusion/disbelief. Then, calmly explain, "No, we would each like a slice of pie; two slices of boysenberry pie. Please." This is important. If you try to share a slice of boysenberry pie, someone is bound to get "accidentally" stabbed with a fork.
