comment Why is money called “rhino”?
As a US English speaker, hole-in-the-wall, without context, inevitably defaults to mean an obscure food joint. So “rhino” in the OP sentence gravitates heavily toward the literal – as in a “rhino steak”. (In San Diego county hole-in-the-wall is a beach where high school kids go to drink and have sex – so on first blush it might mean … getting sex.)

The only difference is that in the second example you've extra-qualified it as one single thing. ..How is this a real question? Is this spam? ; )
