    Andre Guerrero isn't one to shy away from imitation-as-flattery, evidenced strongly by the extra-popular Piggy Fries, a take on In-N-Out's animal variety. Read more

    The Oinkster pastrami is the bomb especially with their house sauces !!! Fantastic piggy fries .... root beer floats are the business as well... I am satisfied !!!

    Not great. Pulled pork is dry and served with NO BBQ sauce. They don't offer BBQ sauce there at all, as far as I can tell. I'm used to pork simmered in sauce with additional on the side.

    Good food but prices are on the higher side. Most things are made in house including how the meats are prepared and condiments. Good beer.

    The atmosphere here is awesome. The smell just draws you in. Pulled pork is A+ and the fries are great too.

    Veggie Burg is top shelf. Word to the wise, the Belgian Fries as-is are NOT veg-friendly. Ask for them to be prepared without the beef shortening.

    First time visitors should try the Pulled Pork or Pastrami sandwiches. They come with a ton of meat piled in so prepare to be stuffed. Fries are ok, I stick to plantains and red cabbage for my sides.

    Once just a Burger of the Month, the house-made veggie burger is now a permanent menu item — and thank goodness, because it's delicious (and only $6). Farro gets top billing on the ingredient list.

    If you're a hipster you'll probably love it here. It's not bad, But not worth $10 for a small pastrami sandwich and $6 for a shake.

    The Oinkster is my go-to here. Peppery pastrami, extra pickles... Make it a meal for $4 extra. The fries (with aioli!) are the best.
