Great Food!

The Oinkster is great. The fries are great and the pulled pork was a treat. Wish it had bbq on it though. Had a milkshake and it really topped off the meal. Would go again!

Great little find. Awesome pulled pork sandwich and pastrami- they cure their own! Fries are really good and the shakes are to die for! Indoor and outdoor seating so you can enjoy the California sunshine!

They have a good variety and all of it is good. I go just for their fries served with mayonnaise. They are so good.

2nd visit at the request of friends. I had the Oinkster Pastrami sandwich which was literally 1/2 fat. Paper thin slices stuffed in a roll with onions, slaw and cheese, and the roll does not hold up well to the moisture of the sandwich. If this were trimmed pastrami, it might really be good, but you just can't tell due... More

Oinkster does very little that is revolutionary but their execution on fast-food standards is beyond excellent. They do everything well and some things are arguably the best in the region. Burgers: meaty delicious, made to order and if you are lucky enough to come during burger week... outrageous! Fries: some, if not the best fries to be had in Los... More

We looked this restaurant up on yelp. It was in walking distance of our hotel and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the service top notch. The portion sizes were huge and we both took home half of our sandwiches.

My first experience at oinkster was juts okay. But I've been back several times and have realized that they are great! The food is excellent and they always have new beers to try. I love burger week where they make their versions of a lot of great burgers (but they're made fresh and with better ingredients). Love the Royale Burger... More

Drove by and stopped, easy parking and the place had some business. Nice patio area, clean for the most part, and then the menu. Oh oh, all my favorites! Had to have pastrami, and the thing was huge. I couldn't eat it all, and it was so tasty, even nuked up the next morning... Service was helpful and friendly, and... More

This was recommended after stating how much I enjoy a good Reuben. Although the Reuben looked great, I opted for the house special Oinkster Pastrami served with caramelized onion, red cabbage slaw, and cheese. The sandwich is actually big enough for two but is so good that it was hard not to try and eat the entire thing. While parking... More
