This place is definitely worth a stop for a Burger if you are doing something in Burbank.. There might be a short wait but it is worth it.. This is a TASTY Burger..

It has the feel and look of a diner, but much larger to accommodate crowds every day. Terrific breakfast spot, but be prepared to huge servings or split something and still have extras.

As far as I know, this is the last remaining original Bob's Big Boy restaurant. They have maintained it just was it was when it was built in 1949, including the original menu items. If you are an old fan of the restaurant (like me)...More

Thanks so much for your review, Bill! You're right -- nothing in our diner has changed since 1947. :) We're keeping the good times alive, one plate at a time. If you haven't been by for Classic Car Night on Fridays, you really should. Can't...More

If for nothing else, go to Bob's Big Boy on a Friday night (parking will be tough) to see dozens of WOW! cars, old and new, classic and rat rods. It's a hoot!

Friendly service, great tasting food, clean and tidy. We came specifically because The Beatles ate here. They have a plaque at the booth they sat in and the staff were very informative and accommodating in making sure we got photos etc,. Can't fault it.More

An original Bob's. Open 24 hours. A classic hamburger place and coffee shop in the old style. But the best is the gathering of classic and vintage cars on Friday evenings. You will want a T-shirt!

In the 50's, you had Spinach, ground beef & eggs (together) on the menu..... The 'old boys' swear it was their favorite! Any chance- improbable as may be that anyone/anywhere remembers it ?

We are visiting LA next month and I was curious if Friday Cruise Night is still happening, and if so what are the hours?

Yes, I believe so. At least I am sure they do in the summer months. You might want to try calling them directly and ask and ask about the hours.

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!
