The Oinkster - Going Downhill

Suebee | Aug 26, 2008 01:22 PM

As a big fan of The Oinkster, I have to say I've been quite underwhelmed lately by the food and service. We tried it again last night with my in-laws.

My quarter chicken came out a good 5-7 minutes before everyone else's food which is a no-no in my book, even at this type of establishment. My fries tasted stale, were cold by the time I started eating them, and I had to ask for the aioli. Chicken was ok, but Mr. Suebee thought the usually succulent pulled pork was dry and just not as good as he remembered. I mentioned my opinion of the fries to the girl who cleared our trays but she didn't really seem to care.

To be honest, lately it feels like there's just an absence of management at The Oinkster leaving a hole that's being filled with sub-par food and service. Now that the new Max has re-opened, hopefully Andre can pay some attention to The Oinkster.

Thanks for letting me vent.
