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. But inside you’ll find one of Austin’s best kept burger secrets. Order the Amarillo with roasted serranos on top and just cut it in half to begin with before you hurt your jaw trying to take a bite of the super thick patty. 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.
