This place’s original location is in Eagle Rock, but The Oinkster ditched their 1950’s roadside Americana vibes for a more modern feel in Hollywood and it works. The huge space on Vine has a big outdoor patio and plenty of communal tables inside for big group gatherings. This is definitely your order-at-the-counter greasy spoon spot, but if you’re going that route today, The Oinkster is the place to do it. Everything from their reuben to their patty melt to their pastrami is good, and just make sure you get a root beer float for the road.
