Little Hipps update

Found the following link in the comments to this entry about the closing of San Antonio landmark Little Hipps, from reader Mags. Here's the relevant bit:

Have you missed Little Hipps? You may want to load up for a drive out to Spring Branch and try the new Timbo's at 14370 U.S. 281.

The restaurant, owned by Tim and Teresa Lang, features one-pound burgers on the same buns Little Hipps used to use as well as shypoke eggs, chicken-fried chicken sandwiches, a chef's salad and more. There's even a ham and tomato shypoke for those who want a little extra kick.

Why the comparison to Little Hipps? Tim Lang was the manager of the San Antonio landmark for 27 years, and he vows, "This is going to be the fix" some diners have been looking for since Little Hipps closed down last year.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Call (830) 885-2325.

I was never really into the Shypokes, but those Little Hipps burgers, only Chris Madrid's are better. I'll have to keep that in mind next time I'm out that way. Wonder if they made off with any of the Hipps decor as well...

Hmmmm, I remember Chris coming into Little Hipp's often when I waitressed there. Wonder where he got the idea for those burgers?

Could you please tell us what shypoke eggs are?
In Annapolis we call blue herrons and egrets "Shypokes". Thank you.
