Come for the food, stay for the entertainment. Despite Burger Continental’s less-than-specific name, the Pasadena hideaway is a local institution with an expansive and varied menu that goes way beyond burgers and fries and beyond, even, classic Middle Eastern specialties (including Armenian chicken, gyros, and shawarma pizzas). If you’d like to impress guests, treat them to the all-you-can-drink-and-eat breakfast, lunch and Sunday buffets – the latter, a brunch, is an eye-popping spread with various stations serving everything from omelets and waffles to seafood to even Mexican food. If you want to loosen them up, the always-hopping courtyard turns into an outdoor club with live Greek and Arabic music on certain nights, not to mention comely belly dancers hypnotizing you with their veils and the call of their finger cymbals. Gyro and gyrating hips go hand in hand.
