Great local joint for a beer or delicious chips

Big Dean's is a fun local joint, very small but with an outside patio, perfect for having a beer and watching the sunset or the activity on the pier. It's located right below Santa Monica pier near the Hot Dog on a Stick. They make their own chips and they are delcious. Cheap beers at happy hour.
