The boy and I visited this Eagle Rock establishment on the 1st day of the year with Matt and Emily.  They had been before, and when we mentioned we were going they were more than happy to join us as they were already fans of this popular burger joint.

The joint itself has a certain charm about it.  It's the perfect blend of classic burger shack and modern hipster hangout.  Packed to the brim with happy burger eaters, we found ourselves eating out on the front patio.  It had a nice atmosphere, if not for being just slightly too sunny for my pasty white skin.  

The burger itself was delicious, but extremely simple.  Nothing in particular makes the burger stand out, except maybe that it was classically tasty.  The flavor, size of the meat and bun, the degree of sauciness-- It played it very safe, which made for a very good burger, but not a life changer.  Though, it did have a tad too much lettuce.  Let's be honest, lettuce is the last thing you want over powering your burger.  All in all, I'm not sure that it's worth the trek to Eagle Rock just on it's own, but if you're near that side of town and want a yummy burger you can count on, by all means, make your way over to Oinkster.

I think the score really sums it up:

Meatiness: 4
Succulentiousness: 3
Bun: 2
Flavor: 4
Stay-together-ness: 3
Joint: 4
