The pastrami sandwich, the burger, the veggie burger and the fries are all winners. Oh and the milkshakes. They're amazing, especially the ube and the seasonal milkshakes.

This crazy-popular place has a line from the moment it opens the door until late at night. The menu's all over the board for a burger place that's anything but basic. Plantains? Yes! Exotic shakes? You bet. The burgers are pretty solid, but wish the pastrami had a little more personality.

They're known for their pastrami but I love their chicken and Brie sammy!

Juicy-delicious cheeseburger ‘n thick shakes. Belgian fries must be dipped in garlic aioli or ordered piggy style for a very guilty pleasure

The ube shake is not to be missed! It is purple yam and coconut goodness. Trust me. And those Belgian fries and that pastrami oh man.

The pastrami is pretty good here but they don't put as much of it on the sandwich as I would like. Definitely recommend!

Hands down best burger! – My husband and I had a hankering for a really good burger and we def found it at The Oinkster!!! It was made to order, meat was tasty, the bun was nice and fresh and the service was outstanding! Highly recommend it! We can't wait to go back to try some of their other items

Yummy Burger, Delicious Strawberry Milkshake – My boyfriend has taken me to this place several times now. And I'm not putting up a fight! The burgers are not always well cooked - hit or miss kinda thing, (I like my meat well done) but they are surprisingly yummy! They are juicy and just melt away in my mouth... so I don't wind up paying much attention to that once I've taken a bite. The chicken is tender and cooked just right. My favorite is the strawberry milkshake. It's thick with a strong strawberry taste... just the way I like it. The Oiknsterade is pretty good too.

I have yet to try the pulled pork sandwich. Looking forward to it! =)

Seating isn't always wonderful, but we've gotten lucky. They need to be aware of turning those heaters on outside especially during these cold nights. Other than that, I have no complaints yet.

Our Favorite in Eagle Rock – I've been a reader of reviews for years but never actually written one. But after reading what seemed like a horribly unfair review, I felt I needed to balance it with our family's raves. We Love The Oinkster! We love the french fries, we love the Pastrami and the pulled pork, the hamburgers are fantastic, and the Aioli dipping sauce is out of this world! The sandwiches are big enough to share so that you can have room to fill up on the best fries ever. Did I mention that the Beet/Spinach Salad is a delightful healthy option on their "specials" menu? The place isn't perfect, however. The milkshakes are good, but not great. The brownies are way too dry, so we go for the PB&J cupcakes now when we want a sweet treat. But the core menu of the place is solid and dependable.

What makes the Oinkster the family favorite is Manager Josh, who goes out of his way to make sure our dining experience is perfect. The crowd is delightfully eclectic and between the indoor tables, the outdoor tables and the low bench seating, there's a comfort level for everyone.

When we leave the kids at home, the grown-ups enjoy the beer selection which seems to have been carefully picked to go with the food. No place is flawless, but we're almost always leaving very happy and very full!

Best Pastrami...EVER. – I used to live close to this place so I would come here once a month. Their pastrami sandwiches are one of the 5 best sandwiches I've ever had in my life. Period. The Belgian fries are killer and so is the garlic aoli/ mayo sauce is perfect. Even the hot mustard is terrific! Canters is the BIG Legendary pastrami joint in L.A. and for good reason. Their sandwiches are great. But The Oinkster IS better. For about $12 you get a sandwich at Canters. For about $12 at the Oinkster you get a MUCH bigger and better sandwich AND a ton of killer fries. I will go back to his place every time I visit L.A. Long live the Oink!!!!!

Bombdizzle Joint – In my opinion, they have the best burgers ever, the best fries, and the best garlic sauce/ ayoli. When people ask where to go to eat in Eagle Rock, my wife and I always say Oinkster.

Wow! Heaven in your belly exists! – Home made at it's best! I mean everything from the breaed, pickles, ketchup, hot/sweet mustard, everything! They have the best hamburger I've ever eaten. The pastrami is cured for two weeks, then applewood smoked. My eyes are rolling back just remembering it. The pulled pork is to die for, nestled with the perfect amount of Home made pickled red cabbage to compliment. It doesn't look so great on the outside, but neither does an oyster.

Oinkster is a rare pearl for your tastebuds! I salivate just thinking about the place. I guess it's called The Oinkster because you just can't seem to eat enough of everything they make!

Great Place to enjoy quality Family Time – I've grown up in this area all my life and just by seeing the changes within this community, I am convinced that The Oinkster is going to be a long living asset to the growth of the surrounding community. My wife and my children love all that you have to offer, Good Times and great Family Togetherness.!!!!
