The Menlo Park Historical Association posted this photo on Facebook today. It brought back good memories of dining at Hippo Burger. It was located on El Camino where Mattress Firm is now.

My sister and I both remember the place very fondly.

If memory serves, there was also one just like it on Van Ness in San Francisco, not far from City Hall.

As a Menlo schoolboy in the late 60s, I went there as often as I could afford as it was a bit pricey for teenagers. I loved their pizza burger and they had a chocolate-marshmellow shake that was a big favorite among my friends. I also remember the one on Van Ness in the city, not far from the famous steakhouse. (Grisson’s?)
