L.A. Boasts Several of America's Top 'Cult' Eateries

LAist picks up on a list (compiled by PoorTaste) of the top 100 "cult" eateries in America. L.A. fares well, with several in the top 20 -- including Pink's Hot Dogs at No. 3.

Here's how PoorTaste rates a "cult" eating joint:

1. "The restaurant must have a highly devoted customer base and should appeal to locals and tourists."
2. "The food must obviously be stellar and unique enough to produce a dedicated clientele."
3. "The wait is almost always unbearable — but worth it."
4. "Multiple locations are okay, but not too many, unless they’re in another country."
5. "A single meal should be relatively cheap. Less than 20 bucks per person is ideal. Less than 10 bucks per person is better."

Here's how L.A. spots fared:

3. Pink’s Hot Dogs
7. Philippe The Original
11. Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles
14. Father’s Office
17. Wurstk├╝che
20. Umami Burger
24. Dan’s Super Subs
35. Porto’s Bakery & Cafe
39. Daikokuya
41. Scoops
49. Yuca’s
67. The Oinkster (photo above)
99. Soowon Galbi Korean BBQ

I'm proud to say I've been to all but three on this list. I better complete it.
