Dino’s is exactly what a dive bar should be – kitschy, cheap, and fun. But that description doesn’t tell the whole story, Dino’s is so much more! Next to one of our other East Nashville haunts No. 308, you’ll find Dino’s behind frosted windows dressed up with stuffed armadillos.
This gem has been around longer than we can remember, and we’re sure if its walls could talk it would have some crazy stories to tell us. Jump through the front door, and you’ll probably come face to face with a line for food if you hit this place up late night. Trust us, leaving your last bar a little before last call is worth it to beat the crowd to Dino’s.
Order from the hand drawn menu cards above the kitchen and watch as the griddle master makes some delicious dishes. Dino’s has hot chicken, cheeseburgers, frito pies, BLTs, fish and chips, cheese quesadillas, and more. On our visit, we ordered the cheeseburger with loaded fries, and the grilled cheese with avocado – both hit the spot! Especially after a few drinks…
The ceilings are low, the lighting casts a red glow on everything, and the air is heavy with grease. And if you need some fresh air, they’ve got a great back patio just for you. This place is our late night dream come true!
