    It is necessary to have an order of Belgian fries, fried twice to leave them light and hot, their fluffy potato essence encased in a stiff, perfectly golden capsule of crunch. Read more

    The Turducken Burger is ONLY available on June 4th. It's a potato bun stuffed with a seasoned turkey patty, a deep-fried chicken breast, cherry gastrique, rosemary/garlic relish, and duck pastrami. Read more

    Andre Guerrero isn't one to shy away from imitation-as-flattery, evidenced strongly by the extra-popular Piggy Fries, a take on In-N-Out's animal variety. Read more

    Once just a Burger of the Month, the house-made veggie burger is now a permanent menu item — and thank goodness, because it's delicious (and only $6). Farro gets top billing on the ingredient list.

    Work up an appetite by exploring the hidden gems of Highland Park during NELAart's Second Saturday Gallery Night, then tackle the Oinkster's over-the-top burgers and pastrami.

    The Oinkster is my go-to here. Peppery pastrami, extra pickles... Make it a meal for $4 extra. The fries (with aioli!) are the best.

    Each day of Burger Week, they do a special burger—anything from a Star Wars-themed burger, to a deconstructed Taco Bell burger, with the patty deep-fried in crushed Doritos. Read more

    Best burgers and pastrami in Eagle Rock. Yummy fries & cupcakes make everything complete. Brand new interior has nice eat in areas & brand new flat screens. Worth the 10 minute drive from Pasadena.

    For their burgers, you can't beat The Royale. A chili cheeseburger with pastrami AND bacon that appears monstrous and absurd, but is actually a delicious medley of flavors and textures.

    The Oinkster Pastrami is good. Piggy Fries and Chili Fries great. Awesome selection of craft beers, with a good rotation of new brews coming in all of the time.

    First time visitors should try the Pulled Pork or Pastrami sandwiches. They come with a ton of meat piled in so prepare to be stuffed. Fries are ok, I stick to plantains and red cabbage for my sides.

    Veggie Burg is top shelf. Word to the wise, the Belgian Fries as-is are NOT veg-friendly. Ask for them to be prepared without the beef shortening.

    Belgium fries w/ Garlic Alioli sauce..BOMB! Love their chopped chicken salad too. Nice beer selection. The fact that the patio is dog friendly is a huge plus for me :)

    Good food but prices are on the higher side. Most things are made in house including how the meats are prepared and condiments. Good beer.

    Get the pastrami sandwich (with gruyere) or the chicken with brie sandwich. They may also have some of the best fries around — with perfect crisp outsides and soft insides.

    The Oinkster Pastrami and Belgian Fries are to-die-for. Beer selection is pretty good too. Order the Ube Shake for your sweet tooth.

    Bring snacks and drinks for the kids. No kids menu and there can be a 30min+ wait during busy times. Draft beer selection helps ease the wait.

    Go to oinkster. Park on the street. Notice the Guy Fieri stencil. Order the Royale burger w/ gruyere, and a reg. Belgian fries w/ extra garlic aioli. Reward yourself with some local oat sodas.

    The Carolina style pulled pork sandwich is the best in the west. Not to be confused with other types of BBQ, Carolina style is herbs & spices wig vinegar. My fave.

    Pulled pork with extra caramelized onions. Look up "Oinkster" on YouTube and watch their segment on Diners, Drive-In's and Dives. Shows you how it's made. :)
