I have not been to a Bob's Big Boy in many years. Good food and value. Clean, quiet and very good service. Walked to restaurant from hotel so location is perfect.

We wanted a small snack to share late at night. We stopped in to this Big Boy and checked out their dessert menu. We saw that the mini ice cream with brownie was only $1.99, so we figured it would be a nice little dessert....More
