Can I just throw in a plug for Hinano's burgers?

  • g

Hinano is a divey bar at the end of Washington in Marina Del Rey, and dammit, they make one fine cheesburger. I highly recommend the joint.

God, I love burgers.

  1. Yeah, I had the burgers once. Pretty good. That was a few years ago.

    1. Hey, I love these too! That place is such a dive, but great to stop in for one of the cheeseburgers. Randomly, it's featured in the film The Criminal that came out a couple of years ago.

        I'll second the motion, great five dollar burger.
        Live near there all my life and just found it about a month ago. Don't know how long it's been there. Anyone know?

          At least 30 years. When I asked what it was that makes their burgers so great, I was told that the secret is the grill itself, which has been seasoned now for over 30 years. I wonder if Jim Morrison ate burgers off this thing?!

          Tip: DON'T get the double cheesburger (throws the balance off), DO ask for grilled onions and both swiss and cheddar. Chili dog and tuna melt are also both fantastic.

        2. I've heard of Hinano Beer, but never Hinano burgers. Do they serve Hinano Beer? Have a Tahitian motif?

          1. Have been here, and don't think I've ever had the hamburger. However, I have had the turkey burger. Not my idea of a good turkey burger. The meat tastes smoked.
