The Oinkster’s now-annual Burger Week starts today, and brings with it a slew of meaty offerings across both locations in Eagle Rock and Hollywood. What started five years ago as a sorta quiet burger party out at the original location has blossomed into a beloved ongoing tradition, where #BurgerLords who eat each new daily burger earn swag and high cholesterol, while mere one-day participants get the option to dine on one-off options approved by owner Andre Guerrero himself.
This year, each burger is inspired by television shows and movies, from Monday’s The Klogger — a Simpsons-fueled double-beef patty that’s overloaded with bacon three ways and pork rind dust — to Sunday’s SpongeBob knock-off Krabby Patty. Other options include an Oinkster take on White Castle sliders a la Harold and Kumar, and a Pulp Fiction-ized Big Kahuna Burger. They’ve even teamed up this year with Highland Park Brewing for a one-off beer to be poured all week long.
For full details on Oinkster’s Burger Week (not to be confused, of course, with Eater’s own Burger Week), check out their website. Be warned, though: even with two participating locations, lines grow long for the annual meat party, so plan ahead for best burgering results.
