The Oinkster is a mainstay on the Los Angeles food scene. One of the best sandwich places in LA, its original location in Eagle Rock was so popular that they opened a second in the heart of Hollywood. West LA and Mid-City fans rejoiced, and patios at both locations are filled each day with #burgerlords and people who know what good food is. It has even been featured on Food Network's hit series "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives."
A fast-casual sandwich shop, created by chef Andre Guerroro, offers slow fast-food and the most delicious burgers, pastrami, and pulled pork around. Their Burgers of the Month and Burger Week featured sandwiches become part of the Oinkster lore (and are featured on this list as well), and their fries and milkshakes only add to the deliciousness of each Oinkster meal.
In Eagle Rock, the menu features Oinkster's famous rotisserie chicken alongside their classic sandwiches, while Hollywood's menu includes fan favorite sandwiches and burgers from Burger Week's past. Treat yourself to a cupcake, Intelligentsia coffee, or one of their many beers on tap, but the real stars are the burgers and sandwiches themselves.
