Jake's Trustworthy Burgers & Beer
Where we've featured it
With a name like that, you don’t need to take our word for it, but Jake’s Trustworthy Burgers & Beers is back in Old Pasadena. The original location opened back in 1947 along Route 66, making it the oldest burger stand in Pasadena, before it was turned into a billiards hall in 1992. But now, over two decades later, owner Chipper Pastron has returned Jake’s Trustworthy to its former burger glory, serving half-pound burger patties (which are smothered in diced grill onions, house-made pickles, and cheddar cheese), fried chicken sandwiches, and hot dogs that come on a toasted bun. Available for outdoor seating along Colorado Blvd.
