Oinskter Takes On Beloved Burgers, Begins With the Big Mac
It's Burger Week at the Oinkster, and enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting each night's new tribute offering. "Eagle Rock's heroes at Oinkster have scored my love (again) with 'Burger Week,'" says burger lover Carlos Rossi. Rossi, a frequent LAist Featured Photos pool contributor, also shared with us his shots of Monday night's special, the Oinkster's version of the classic McDonald's Big Mac.
So how did their interpretation stack up? Rossi seems to have been McLovin' it:
A quick insight on my experience with their 'BIG MAC' which was utterly well put together with the key ingredients (two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun) that goes into the well known classic. I have to admit, I don't think I can go visit 'the other guy' ever again after having their version of this hamburger. Judging from the abundance of other customers ordering the same thing, and face deep into their food, .. I was about to experience a rare day here. Oinkster, why you gotta be so good? I'll definitely be returning tonight for Tommy Burger night!
The week finishes out with the Oinkster's take on the famous Father's Office burger (Wednesday), the Grill 'Em All Truck boys take over the grill (Thursday), the restaurant serves up their version of the Umami burger (Friday) and a weekend of a special Oinkster burger.
