Happy Hour at the Oinkster?

Earlier this week I received an email from the Oinkster which included two interesting tidbits that I'd like to share:

1 - They will open soon for breakfast on the weekends.
2 - They're now offering a special happy hour menu between 3:00 and 6:00 with deals on beer and a "special happy hour menu."

Anyone know anything about the happy hour menu or will I need to venture forth in the rain tomorrow to check it out?

  1. I was just there today - and while I didn't ask about the happy hour, there was a note on the blackboard saying that happy hour specials were "coming soon", I believe. There was no more detail than that.

    1. Just received another email, with more details:- Happy Hour is Mon-Fri, from 3-6

      - Burger and Fries Combo for 3.99
      - Belgian Fries for 1.00
      - Chili Fries for 2.00
      - 1 POUND of Belgian Fries for 5.00 (That's a LOT of fries!)
      - Pints for 2-3 bucks
      - Pitchers for 7-10 bucks

      No date on when this starts, though.

        Sounds fun. Can someone tell them to turn down the lights in the eve. It seems to bare and bright in there. Not like a place I would like to hang out and drink a pitcher of beer with friends.

          Because of the purple teeth or the blood-shot eyes? Thanks for the menu, Elsie. A beer, burger, and fries would really hit the spot right now.

      2. I called the restaurant today and they confirmed that the happy hour is in effect! Anyone been yet? I'm imagining a tiny (but tasty) burger in the 3.99 burger/fries combo, and I'd love to know if I'm wrong.

          The non-happy hour burger is pretty small itself.

            Oh, would kick my ass in an eating contest :)
            I think they're pretty big!

            1. re: Papuli

              I have to agree with Papuli. Those burgers are the perfect size for my tastes (1/3 lb. i think). I also love the fact that if you order it medium-rare, you get it medium rare.

          2. re: Papuli

            We just happen to meet with the director of operations of Oinkster/Max last night and asked about the happy hour burger size...full size burger, great price...yummm

          3. who are you people who can make it to happy hour between 3 and 6 pm??? :o

              hahaha. my thoughts exactly. my day is just revving up during those hours.

            2. Heard about pulled pork tacos during happy hour, but missed it every time. Recently made it and they tacos are delicious. the tortilla is good and the pork is oh so tender. there have a choice of salsa, but yellow peppers complimented the pork perfectly. an excellent filling for a corn tortilla, a perfect combination. The burger with grilled onions is not to be missed.

                I was there last weekend and saw their version of "animal style" fries with cheese; thousand island and onions. Does anyone have a comprehensive happy hour menu? Also, what are the happy hour drink specials?
