What's Cooking?

Perhaps too late for Einstein, but Richard Feynman most probably ate here! Stephen Hawking passed right by me only inches away in his motorized wheelchair during one talk visit. I will cherish the moment forever. Sorry, I'm all nerding out. The burger here is a taste of history.


hi cathy! what a cool retro place! my husband would like that chili with his burger...


How cool, Dennis. You are so fortunate to have gone to school in Pasadena. PnB felt like some of the college hangouts where The Mister and I used to go, and why we are eager to return.
Hi cc. Retro-yes!- that's the word. From the plates and water glasses to the formica tables and the from scratch cooking, it evoked some fond memories. (Because I've experienced it when it wasn't retro...)

ed (from Yuma)

thanks again for a good report. Nice link to the humorous chili article. I always thought of chili size (chili burger in So Oregon) as truck stop cuisine.


That looks like a comfortable place to stop by for a meal. Interesting deconstructed chili burger, too!


Thanks, ed. Chili size is a hearty meal which we have enjoyed at many truck stops and any other place when listed on the menu. This one was done very well.
It *is* a deconstructed chili burger, Alyssa...never thought of a Chili Size that way. This is a really nice, local hole in the wall and great find. We plan on looking for similar, student hang out places on the next Pasadena visit.
