Back in the day, like in the early 60's, many of us almost lived at Bob's Toluca Lake. Last evening, before an event at the Falcon Theater, we dined at Bob's. It hasn't changed much, except for the food. The Big Boy Super Combo just didn't even come close to those we enjoyed back then. I can't quite put my... More

I've had the chance to eat here a few times. The food does not disappoint, although sometimes the service is a but slow.... understandably because of the continuous flow of customers. The ambiance is everything you could hope for in a restaurant in the heart of the studio area, and more than makes up for any waiting.

Look. It's Bob's. It's greasy delicious diner food available 24/7. I am a local who had been coming here for years and I've seen more celebrities and industry people here than anywhere else. Plus you can get chicken and waffles for breakfast. Why go anywhere else?

The food is great, with more healthful options under each category. Whole wheat buns, etc. The prices at first seem high for a burger joint, but remember they come with a salad and the soft drinks are bottomless. The place almost oozes early 1960's muscle car era kitsch. Highly recommended.

So easy. We were served quickly, our food came quickly. We came in for breakfast and it was a huge plate of food and very delicious for a reasonable price. If there was a rating higher than excellent i'd probably use it here.

We visited after Warner Brothers studio tour. The staff efficient and friendly. The food average. Burgers on the greasy side and standard flavorless industrial meat. The fries great. Nice to have salad and cherry pepper with our order.

24 hour diner. The original Bob's Big Boy hamburger is similar to a McDonald's Big Mack...just OK. Other menu items, including a variety of hamburger options, are OK. Outdoor seating available. It is expensive for a diner. Service is slow.

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!
