The Oinkster is LA fast-food royalty and a place you probably recognize from countless cable food shows.

You can’t go wrong with any of their burgers, but our order usually involves the applewood smoked pastrami sandwich, a side of perfectly crunchy onion rings, plus an ube milkshake to-go. It’s made with nearby Fosselman’s ice cream and is a nod to chef Andre Guerrero’s Filipino heritage, as well as the larger Filipino community in Eagle Rock itself.
