HUNGRY! HUNGRY! HIPPO! I've been to Motor and Gilligan's but the Hippo Burger is where its at! Burgers that will blow your mind! This will be a new experience that will have you coming back for more... I'm more of a traditional burger dude but after eating a California (Fresh guacamole & organic alfalfa sprouts topped) and Aloha (Grilled pineapple... More

I've eaten here on 6 separate occasions, and have been floored everytime. I drive all the way from Novi, Michigan just to get a taste of something I can't seem to replicate. I know it sounds crazy cause we're just talking about a burger, but if you ate here, you'd know. I wish there was a location closer to me... More

Who knew that the best burger in Detroit is actually in Windsor? We live in Michigan but frequent Canada often to visit friends and family, and when we do, we make sure to visit the Hungry Hippo. Their burgers are so delicious, words can't describe! We stumbled upon it accidentally, but thankfully we did! Can't wait for this little gem... More

The Hungry Hippo California Burger Shack is exactly what its name suggests... a small burger shack with a cool California-like atmosphere. Seating is at picnic tables outside, but if you want to avoid the heat, take your burger to go! The place is cash only, so be prepared. The California burger is my fave... beef burger, alfalfa sprouts, vidalia onion,... More

I think this place caters to the health conscience person like myself. I thought the chicken burger was great and the sweet potato fries even better. My husband, said it was alright, too much stuff on the burger, too messy, i think were his exact word. I enjoyed it very much and the place is super cute. Hope to see... More

I love the fact that it's a place u can go to eat and still feel good after eating burgers and fries. The food is so fresh u never feel bogged down...I could literally run 3 miles right after eating a Cali burger! It's like an energy drink in the form of a burger! Best atmosphere and best patio in...

Most burger joints I've been to are filled with beer-guzzling, testosterone-fueled, insatiable carnivorous men wearing hockey jerseys! In other words, few are female-friendly or even remotely attempt to cater to the tastes of what a woman might want. The Hungry Hippo though is totally different. It's not your typical greasy burger or chip wagon. It has a healthy focus and... More

I consider myself somewhat of a burger connoisseur. I've tried some of the best burgers offered across the USA, from New York to Los Angeles and back home in Michigan. There's just something about the simplicity of beef on a bun that draws me in. It's a clean slate, a blank canvas that allows for creativity, nuances and complex flavors... More
