This is definitely showing my age.. I remember these Giant Orange stands.. the one I remember was somewhere around Dixon. I remember what a treat it was to stop there when we were kids on the way to visit my grandparents in San Mateo. I also remember seeing them on our trips to Disney Land along Hwy 99. Now there is a Giant Orange restaurant on Howe Ave which apparently is supposed to be a tribute to the old Giant Orange stand. I thought there would be more old pictures of the stands or memorabilia from the old stands but it's more just a retro styled decor.
Of course the menu consists of mainly burgers but they do have a turkey burger and an vegi burger, fries, onion rings and old time shakes. Check out the menu here Giant Orange menu
