I grew up in Marlow Heights, Maryland, in the 60s and 70s, which is a suburb of Washington, DC. My experience with Gino's was occasionally going to the store on Silver Hill Road in Suitland. The menu was similiar to the Jr. Hot Shoppes I worked at just down the road in front of Iverson Mall. I understand that Gino's at one time was owned by Marriott, which also owned the former Jr. Hot Shoppes (and a fast food variant of the Hot Shoppes Cafeterias).
I created and maintain a retro web site about Marlow Heights and vicinity of the 60s and 70s, and have information on the Jr. Hot Shoppes, as well as the Red Barns. I also have a link on my site to the "official" Marriott recipe for the sauce used on the Royal Burger, which was one and the same as the MIghty Mo. This sandwich was also very, very similiar to the Gino's double decker burger. Since I hear that the Gino's version had a Thousand Island type sauce, I'm thinking it might be the same thing, since they were both run by Marriott at one time. Believe me, it was more than just mayo, ketchup, and relish. If you follow the recipe for the Royal Burger/Mighty Mo, and close your eyes as you're chomping down, you'll think you're back in one of these great burger joints of the 60s and 70s.
Go here for the recipe:

Keep the memories alive,
