Foursquare Tips

  • To understand the Big Dean vibe, know it first opened in 1901, and only six owners have held it since then, often former customers. Its just that beloved by its clientele.
  • Hands down - the Best Burger on the Westside! :)
  • The best chicken Nachos of LIFE!!!!
  • great place to watch Football, drinks some beers, always a great time at Dean's!
  • A west-coast haven for displaced Giants fans! A hidden gem right under the pier, basically on the beach. Wear your jersey on Sunday and join in on the "New York Super Bowl Bound Giants!" chants.
  • Hotdog and chips is pretty good.
  • One of the best burgers in town
  • Cheap place where to eat awesome hamburgers in Santamonica
  • The BEST day drinking spot in Santa Monica. 22oz Primo bottles for $6- I'm in love :)
  • A David Byrne song and a Talking Heads song in one visit?! This must be the place!
  • If the weather is nice, definitely hangout in the back patio of the bar.
  • This place is bitching. They play awesome music and the beer size is massive!
  • Get the deans burger! Its the best in town
  • Host/waiter didn't look at us just said "see if you can find a table (cause I don't give a d**n)" and we didn't find anywhere to sit although he could have organized it. Crap attitude.
