Wanted to have the classic American diner experience which we got in spades. Very good value meals plus the portions were huge. Free refills of sodas. Very good service. It was really popular too.

Do you mean Holiday Inn, Downtown Burbank on First Street? If so, Bob's is about 2 miles.

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.

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!
