I hadn't been to Oinkster in just over a year. I was disappointed with the place on my last trip but that hardly seems fair; it was so crowded that I should have just gone elsewhere. It was December 30th and lots of people had the day off, to say nothing of all the fans of Wisconsin and TCU who were there, no doubt having heard about it on Food Network or one of the other places where it has been featured. It took 40 minutes to get my food that day and the food was not up to its usual quality (or at least the quality I remembered from the old days when it opened and I used to go there much more frequently.) So I knew that wasn't the best day to judge it and I was happy to try it again.
It was again crowded, but at least it was manageable and we were able to take seats outside.
This trip to Oinkster was good enough to confirm that my last, disappointing trip there was probably an aberration. I will try to return more frequently.
