There are many reasons why the Apple Pan remains popular with locals and tourists alike, but one of its most beloved items on the menu is its Hickory Burger.

There are always new burgers to try in Los Angeles. But if you want to experience the ultimate LA burger, look no further than this iconic restaurant.

Their juicy hickory burger is a Los Angeles classic. Enjoy a beef patty with sweet-smoky hickory sauce, mayo, pickles, and chilled iceberg lettuce for crunch. Add some melted Tillamook cheddar on top and head back into the fray.

Apple Pan's legendary status is owed to their humble, modest-sized burgers cooked through but very juicy with a good flavor for ground chuck. They come beautifully and bountifully dressed in crisp lettuce, pickles, cheese (optional), and house-made sauces.

The burger is a thing of beauty. It starts with the hickory seasoned meat, which gets smoky seasoning as it cooks. Then there's chili sauce on top and a lightly sweet relish underneath to add an extra flavor dimension that makes this combo sing.

Hamburgers are a staple at the Apple Pan, but there's something else on the menu you should not overlook: The pies. You'll find the pies daily made in savory crusts, like apple, banana, or coconut cream - and these pies come fresh every day.
