Cool find Mad Dog Mike. Here is a little better scan of the photo showing the logo - Red Shepherd, the 10 cent Hamburger King!

Apparently there was another Waikiki Drive-In located in Holtville. A few mentions I found on the web:

RECIPE FOR SUICIDE — I don't know what they put in at the Brawley drug fountain to make the Brawley Fountain Suicide but I know what we put in the Waikiki Suicide. We put a squirt of all our milkshake syrups, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and cherry into a cola to make our "suicide."

When I was a car hop we made this concoction at the Waikiki and the Twin Barrels drive-ins in Brawley. Remember, those were the days when you could order a cherry, vanilla or chocolate Coke at most fountains. I also worked at Red Shepherd's Waikiki drive-ins in El Centro and Holtville.

Visiting Red Shepherd’s “Waikiki Drive-In” was another fun thing to do. The waitresses wore grass skirts.

Would be nice to see smoe more photos of the car hop[s in the grass skirts.
