Having just arrived in Burbank after a long flight we needed food and asked our hotel concierge for a recommendation and he offered up Bobs. The place is really in need of a good cleaning with ceiling tiles hanging down, ageing decor and some places the cleaning staff don't get close to wiping over. However, the food is fantastic, I...

We visit this restaurant for lunch. A real diner style restaurant with Big Boy character every where. The burgers were excellent. Meat is good. Fries are just ok. Salad is less than average. Go for the burgers, you will be happy.

Awesome food and good, friendly service - chicken tenders and salad were yummy! Prices are really quite great, too! The interior of the place is nice and the seating is comfortable, with available seating outside, too.

Bob's Big Boy salad with steak is an unsung "WOW" and the chocolate shake was the best one I've had in years.

My wife and I visited the LA area over the Labor Day weekend and put a trip to the Friday Night Car Show at Bob's in Burbank at the top of our list of "must dos." We were not disappointed. The parking lot was filled with some great classic cars; some fully restored and others in progress. Their owners were... More

We hadn't eaten at a Bob's Big Boy in ages, so while travelling through decided to hit the iconic one in Burbank (Toluca Lake). A favorite of original owner and many stars back in the day- lots of pictures on the walls to jar the memories and 50's/60's music blaring away. Service was very good, food was as remembered. Only...

Average burgers. Nice ice cream. What carries the place is the retro feel. You should try it at least once.
