With its screen doors and red leatherette seats, the Apple Pan has the feeling of a country wayside kitchen. They serve sodas in old-fashioned conical paper cups, and the waiters have a strange custom of pouring out a big slop of ketchup for you on a paper plate to dip your fries in. Choosing between the steak burger and hickory burger can be trying when you’re not yet quite comfortable saying “I’ll have one of each.”
