We ended up here after a concert on Friday night and the waitress was great. It was 5 minutes before my birthday and she made sure to bring me a Chocolate Sundae with a candle. We had a Bob's Burger and it is as good as it was 10 years ago. Way to go .

It is usually a very busy place after 6:00 but service is good and it's a treat to have the historical bob's hamburger. It reminds me of my high school days.

Wow! I hadn't been to this Bob's restaurant since I was 5 years old and that's 50 years ago now. I sat right near the Beatles booth and was very pleased with the service, the ambiance and the food. Everything was just as good as when I was a kid and nothing stays the same except, apparently, this place. The... More

I stopped at Bob's Big Boy restaurant recently and was instantly transported back to my childhood. Everything from the decor, to the food, to the counter seating was just as I remembered it as a kid. Of course, my Big Boy hamburger was the best part of the visit!

Our burgers are six ounces of fresh ground beef served on a grilled bun with French Fries. The "Big Boy" is our original double-decker hamburger. It's two all-beef patties on our grilled sesame seed bun with crisp shredded lettuce, American cheese, dressing, and special relish.Come into Bob’s Big Boy for a scrumptious burger & fries or a refreshingly delicious milkshake. And you can get breakfast from us anytime of the day!
