Rather than just mess with our heads today, The Oinkster is making a long-running joke at the Eagle Rock restaurant a reality. Owner Fred Guerrero tells us this morning, "Throughout the history of the restaurant, not a day's gone by that people don't ask for things we've never had. They swear by our hot dogs or steak sandwiches or onion rings."
Rather than get in a snit about it, The Oinkster is releasing a one-day-only menu called Urban Legends that will start at 11:00 A.M. today, featuring all the things you might've thought they had or wished they had like a danger dog, both plain and fully loaded with bacon and pico de gallo, onion rings, steak sandwiches, and vanilla cupcakes. Guerrero says, "In the spirit of April Fool's Day, we thought it'd be fun to do things a little differently." So the joke's on you, people who order wrong, though your confusion and bad behavior are also being rewarded. See The Oinkster's full Urban Legends menu below and if you like what you eat, you can even buy a silk-screened limited edition poster that commemorates the event.
