Photographer's Note

The Apple Pan is another LA landmark, and it's a well-deserved designation. This little "shack"-style eatery opened its doors on April 11, 1947, so it's one of LA's oldest continuing-operating restaurants. Reportedly, the founder of Johnny Rockets stated that he used this place as a model for his own 50s-themed chain, especially the counter seating, open grill area and a limited menu with consistent quality (although that seems to have changed over the past several years, in the case of JR's, however).

Just remember that it's a very historic eatery, so expect crowds. Make sure you know before you go: it's STILL cash only; I think that's been the case since they opened in 1947. On that note, I'm pretty sure that the cash registers are original, if not VERY close to it. It's fun to just sit and watch the staff operate them! Also, there are NO TABLES - seating is COUNTER ONLY, and it's standing room only until you find a place to sit. I would try to go during off hours to avoid the real crush, but that's going to be difficult at this place. There is also little parking. There is a diminutive lot behind the restaurant, but don't count on it: be prepared to parallel park on the street and walk a fair distance. Once you get there and get seated, however, you're in for a real treat. The menu is about as basic as it comes. Don't bother if you're looking for a salad! It's burgers and fries, sandwiches (tuna salad, egg salad, tuna salad or Swiss cheese), soft drinks, and PIE, and little else, but since it's an LA institution, it's well worth a visit if you're in the area.
