I went to the Eagle Rock location and was surprised by the total lack of parking space. I was about two blocks away before I found a spot, but the walk was worth it. The joint was hopping and filled with fantastic smells of smoke and BBQ sauce. You have to order at the counter like other fast food places.... More

I went with some co-workers and tried the pulled pork. It was good, but messy. The bread isn't really as able to hold up to the goodies inside. When discussing it my coworkers said the same thing. Maybe, it was just a bad batch of bread, I don't know. The dip for the fries is very garlicky; so if you... More

If you want to try a gourmet hamburguer and fabulous onion rings..this is the place. Big and tasty burguers, they made their own ketchup (they even had one with chipotle), crispy fries and refreshing draft beer. The staff was super nice. I want to eat there again and try the pulled pork.

Love pastrami! And for me, this is the best! Also the garlic dip for the fries. Been to a few pastrami places, so far, remains the favorite. Nice seating outside, and the staff are friendly and always helpful.

Decided to check this place out after seeing it on Diners Drive-ins and Dives. The ambiance was definitely much better than the food; they had a couple tv's with sports on, the place was lively with conversation and there was a large outdoor patio. It was cool that they had their own beer on tap and a few options to... More

Didn't mind the crowds; it was the sign of a popular eatery. The food was delicious; we could have ordered less and had plenty. Pastrami was excellent and the service was very friendly.

We had the Oinkster Pastrami and the Oinkster fries, oh and the burger with bacon. All the bomb. The line to get in looks long, but it went very quick. Just could not decide when we got to the front. They need more menus on line. Too many choices, too little stomach space. There is always next time. And there... More
