Hinano's Cafe

Cheeseburger w/ chips and peppers on the side - $6. (not pictured: Fat Tire on tap - $4)

Psst, this is Venice's well-kept secret, but lucky for you, you're in on it.
With an unassuming exterior and your typical dive-bar scene in the interior, Hinano's probably does not initially make the top of your dining list. Well, don't ever let looks fool you!

Because quite honestly, I think their burgers are up-to-par with fellow overpriced, overrated gourmet burger joints that have infiltrated LA... for half the price! I don't want to hype it up, but you really should give it a chance before you judge. Plus, with a cold beer in a frosted mug in hand, you really won't have much to complain about.
