My business partner Adam and I were in Los Angeles on a business trip. One of our bands, Shadows Fall, was performing on Fuel TV’s Daily Habit and we stopped by the studio to watch them perform. The episode airs on Friday, February 5th at 9 pm EST. Once the taping was over, the guys loaded up their gear onto the bus and headed off for the first date of their current tour.
Adam looked at me and said “I’m hungry.” Although our next meeting was to be over lunch, I looked back at Adam and without missing a beat replied “I know exactly what to do. We’re 0.9 miles away from solving your problem.”
A few minutes later we arrived at one of my all time favorite burger jams, The Apple Pan. Open since April 11, 1947, they serve a very simple menu made of burgers, pies, tuna salad, fries and drinks. No frills, no fuss, no over thinking. Just wait for a seat to open and place your order.
Knowing we were going to be eating again soon, Adam and I kept it simple; 1 Hickory burger each. Everything is made right in front of you as the counter wraps around the very busy grill. The burgers come wrapped in wax paper, no plate. Grab a wad of napkins because the bad boy is a messy one!
The burger is made of fine quality beef and topped with the freshest condiments and bun. The difference here is the hickory sauce which is like a smoky ketchup / BBQ sauce combo. Why they don’t bottle and sell it is beyond me. The burger was just enough to leave us satisfied but not kill us for the 2nd lunch.
If I worked at Fuel TV, the Apple Pan would become my Daily Habit!
