Amazing food. Pulled port sandwhich was flavorful and not at all greasy. Piggy fries were to die for. Clean, friendly service. Highly recommend!

I think they gotta decide which they really wanna do. Anyways, have been hearing about it for awhile and was on this side of LA so it was time... Large and easy parking lot. Indoor and outside seating. Casual interior strangely blend of Formica and brick/exposed ceiling beams. Not cheap. Place your order, take a number and they deliver to... More

We went there for a special burger experience. We tried the Royale burger and the oinkster pastrami. The burger were too much for my taste. In particular, this combinatio of beef with pastrami and bacon and all other stuff, In think it was too much. It was the first time I have tried pastrami, and I believe that I am... More

Awesome burgers...and they serve beer! If I lived closer, I would be a regular there. If you live closer or you are in the area, this is a place you need to check out.

I had their pastrami sandwich, but I must say that was too much...pastrami and almost no bread. I would never order it again. The sandwich is huge and hard to eat. I went there the second time and had another sandwich (classic chicken salad sandwich) and a salad (Caesar). They were really good, but still big. My point is: their... More

While I was tempted to do a burger, I saw a chicken and brie sandwich on the menu. It comes with tomato, and onion on grilled sourdough bread-so delicious! Split an order of the belgian fries; it is a good serving and you will leave FULL. Lunch seems like a good time to come; short line and they have 2... More

I usually visit Los Angeles twice a year and every time I'm in town, I cannot miss the chance to visit The Oinkster. My favorite, The Pulled Pork, but the chicken is amazing as well, the meat practically falls off the bone. The Pastrami is sooooo good and the burgers are done right!

Based on an amazing first visit, we came back to The Oinkster for a second time. The sandwiches were amazing, again! Worth the drive!

Fast, original and homey. Fun drinks. Great shakes and burgers. Homemade ketchup. Definitely stop by again. Not a lot of parking. No bathroom. We came at 3 and it was almost full. So come expecting a line.

Good portions . Get there before noon or you'll be waiting in line a while! The pastrami was great! They have beers on tap which is a cool option for a slow fast food restaurant!
