No one manages the line at @theapplepan – you just kinda feel like it’s your turn and sit. No real need for menus – I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a burger in their hands. No glassware even as your coke is poured into a paper cone filled with ice. They sure don’t make them like this anymore. (Thanks @foodjetaime for the pick, and for bring two New Yorkers around in #LA)
