Burger Week at The Oinkster continues...and we've got another report from a serious burger lover!

As he declared he would yesterday, LAist Featured Photos pool contributor Carlos Rossi followed up his visit to Eagle Rock's The Oinkster for the first night of their playful Burger Week and Chef Andre Guerrero's take on the Big Mac with a night two visit to see what their version of the Tommy Burger tasted like.

Here's how Rossi's Tommy's Oinkster-style burgerxperience went down, he tells us via e-mail:

Just when I thought DAY 1 of Burger Week was a good start, I arrive at DAY 2; The Tommy Burger. Andre Guerrero, you are seriously amazing me with how close you come & how delicious you make these familiar eats taste! The Tommy Burger as you're familiar with, an all beef patty, smothered in chili, with pickles, mustard, and of course that giant tomato. Well again, such simple ingredients.. such BOLD taste! Since the night prior I demolished my Big Mac, this one I savored, and what a savory burger it was! If you haven't been going, tonight would be a good night to start! DAY 3 the Oinkster takes on Father's Office, and this will be a tricky call in my taste. I'm betting since I've had 2 nights of success, they are going to amaze us yet again!
