Old fashioned diner with traditional menu served by polite staff. There is one type of coffee- hot and refillable. No room for tumeric chai latter here. Don’t ask for the WiFi Code

I’d bet the place has not changed in 50 years, and that is a good thing. I always get the Big Boy Combo and, if you want to live dangerously, a chocolate malt. Truly delicious. They don’t take reservations but we rarely have to wait....More

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!
