In the grand scheme of things, I'm a very new resident to San Francisco. Having moved here just three years ago, I am not familiar with the historic icons that are represented on Bill's Place menu, so it's a-Googleing I will go!
In David's review, he mentions the "Carol Doda" burger, which has two olive-topped patties, and the English muffined "Jack Hansen" burger. Now, the reason for the olive-topped patties is that Carol Doda, who was a famous San Francisco stripper at the Condor Club in the sixties, was also a breast implant pioneer. A siliconeer, if you will. Once a modest 34B, Doda implanted herself in such a way that increased her assets to a hearty 44D. Dancing on top of a white baby grand piano while dressed (or undressed) in a topless bathing suit, Carol Doda started a topless trend not yet seen in most strip bars. In fact, there's a very respectable California grizzly bear-topped plaque commemorating this momentous event in strip bar history, which announces:
Where It All Began
The Birthplace of the World's First Topless & Bottomless Entertainment
Topless - June 19, 1964
Bottomless - September 3, 1969
Starring Ms. Carol Doda
Miss Doda turned in her pole in the the eighties and opened a lingerie store in Cow Hollow called Carol Doda's Champagne & Lace Lingerie Boutique.
