Dino's DayGlo Orange Chicken - today

WLA | Mar 4, 2004 07:10 PM

I was going to be at Staples Center today for an ice hockey game that my son's HS was playing so I made time to drop by Dino's Burgers on Pico, (just a couple of blocks west of Vermont on the north side of the street. It looks like chaos as you order, but they have it together and each person's order is taken and they remember what you ordered. Nice people and the place was doing unbelievable business at 1:45 P.M., it looks like a cash making machine.

This is a half chicken with some sort of vinegar based sauce that it has been marinating in and then grilled for a nice exterior char served over a bed of fries, (excellent fries too) that are piled under the chicken so that they get soaked with the marinade. They throw in three corn tortillas with each order of chicken.

I got two orders and a coke and pigged out in the Staples Center parking lot before going to watch the teen weasel play. Wonderful, nirvanic lunch; $9 including a large coke .
