Hoppers and Gregs on the Airline Hwy. was back in the 60's. Hoppers had one on Scenic Hwy. and one on Fla. Blvd. FYI

Ronnie was trying to bring some of this back in play.

re: Ronnie From Hoppers


sorry Manwich.


From what I remember:

Hopper's was next to Richard's Ford on Fla Blvd. (Now it's some other car dealer). It was a awesome drive in like Sonic but much better. The shakes would come in huge glasses (real glass!! lol) that everyone stole and took home. The food was very good. They actually had many of these drive-ins around Southeast LA. I remember eating at one in Lutcher!!!

The guy in the 80's either paid for the Hopper's name or had some family connection back in the day. The one across from Mall City was not a drive-in, therefore I refused to consider it to be a Hopper's.

Seriously, thanks for bringing a childhood memory back that I had not thought of in 20 years

Nah, Ronnie Shaab's family ran New Generation. He didn't have any connection to the old Hoppers, other than one of nostalgia.

I think your childhood has been on its last leg for a while.

I remember going there as a kid. Now I just found out it was the fake Hopper's I think I even went to a birthday party there for a classmate. Which I don't understand...why have your birthday party at Hopper's when you can have it at Leo's, obviously.

Thanks, I couldn't think of Ronnies last name.

Didn't know if you saw my post a couple days ago. I got to talk with our cousin the other day, she got a new job.

re: Ronnie From Hoppers


I was a huge hopper's fan so I found some more info:



quote:

As a teenager in the late 1960s, I enjoyed going to Hopper’s. Hopper’s was located on Veterans Boulevard in Metairie and was a drive-in-type restaurant. Their menu included delicious ice cream treats and sandwiches. It was such a fun place to go for fast food.
Was it the only one to exist in the New Orleans area? Any recollection of this drive-in restaurant?


Hopper’s Drive-Inn was a franchise that began in Baton Rouge. The first location opened on Scenic Highway during the late 1940s. Initially a family-run ice cream shop, Hopper’s soon expanded its menu to include hot dogs, hamburgers and fries. More locations followed, first in Baton Rouge and later in Jefferson Parish suburbs near New Orleans.

A total of four locations operated in Jefferson Parish from the early 1960s to the mid-’70s. In the early ’60s, Warren Soulier managed Hopper’s Drive at 8101 Airline Highway while Cecil Wesley managed Hopper’s Jefferson, Inc., at 1315 Jefferson Highway. By the late ’60s, another Hopper’s Drive-Inn location had been added at 3005 Veterans Blvd. A fourth location, at 4933 Veterans Blvd., was in operation by late ’70. Two years later, only the Jefferson Highway location remained but it, too, soon ceased operation.
