The Apple Pan Restaurant Review

: This legendary burger joint has been packing them in since 1947. The cooks-waiters at this tiny, always-crowded spot race around inside the horseshoe-shaped counter turning out orders fast. Those waiting for seats --- there are no tables here, just stools at the counter --- will stare ravenously at you, making sure you devour your food pronto. The classic "steakburger" is topped with iceberg lettuce, relish, mayo and Tillamook cheddar (don't ask for tomatoes --- the request won't be granted). Our favorite, however, is the hickory burger, dunked in barbecue sauce. Often overlooked are the good ham and cheese sandwiches, and the crisp fries are from the era before fast-food mass-production took the soul out of burger joints. The apple pie is nearly as legendary as the burgers, but we prefer the berry and cream versions.
