Description: 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!

This place is a true must-see, it's like walking into the 1950's or early 60's, complete with staff dressed in Big Boy bowling shirts! The interior looks original, well-maintained; staff are friendly and fast with your meal, always someone around to ask if you want your drink topped up, or you need anything else.

Great burger in a great old-fashioned diner served by friendly staff. Well worth getting off the beaten path for.

The classic car show was a nice little bonus but did mean parking was harder to find.

This is apparently the first Bob's Big Boy, so that makes it interesting. Some historical mementos on the walls that were fun to look at. It's your basic family restaurant with your basic family restaurant food and atmosphere. Plump middle-aged server was nice and called us "sweetheart." Need I say more?

Although they aren't the same burgers as Bob's once served, they're somewhat close. The buns are different as is the meat. The service was very good. Bob's signature Big Boy statute is all over the place - from the rooftop to outside the front door to inside the back dining room. Would I return? Yes, but not for the Big Boy sandwich which didn't leave me very excited. It was nice to see that the diner apparently does a high-volume business (they must be doing something right). They even offer 50's style car hop service on weekends.

My kids had never eaten at a Bob's Big Boy, so we walked here from the Tangerine hotel for lunch on my daughter's birthday. The service was fast and friendly and the portions were large. They had souvenir t-shirts for sale, but didn't have my daughter's style choice in her size. We were told that we can order on-line. It was like taking a step back in time. They have cruise-ins with classic cars on a regular basis, and the ONION RINGS are wonderful!
