Despite the fact that it’s painted bright blue, it would be easy to loop Casino El Camino in with all the restaurants around it on Dirty 6th and think it’s just another dive bar.

After you’re done, be sure to only share your experience here with the people who can appreciate the fine art of a burger in a dive bar.
