    Friday nights, come to see free car show. Loads of vintage cars. Walk up order window in the back. Bring a chair and chill outside if you like.

    Cannot go wrong with the Classic Big Boy Combo. If you like Bleu Cheese with your fries, ask for a side of dressing and go to town!

    From the glowing logo to the Big Boy himself out front, this is a destination for anyone who enjoys taking a bite out of nostalgia as much as the food. Read more

    I spent a lot of late nights here and drank way too many of their amazing milkshakes. I regret nothing. And you have to order a burger. Go with the Super Big Boy with fries...chili cheese fries!

    This is a classic so cal place for a Big boy combo and a shake as well as a historical spot everyone should visit at least once!

    I’m happy this place is surviving the covid lockdown. Car hop service stayed opened throughout 2020. Social distance and enjoy a burger. Closes early though. I love this place!

    Chili size spaghetti is a bizarre (but delicious) option. And it comes with garlic toast!

    Burgers, shakes, fries, and you can flavorize(new word) your soda. Plus, if you go on the right day there is a classic car show in the parking lot.

    Opened 1949. Oldest remaining branch of the burger chain. Mixes streamline modern with Googie. Remodeled interior.

    A place you really need to visit when you're in CA for the atmosphere, and the hamburger culture ... but i was not 100% happy with the classic bigboy burger.

    It's Bobs! How can you resist their classic burgers and Chili spaghetti? No one does it better. Wish they'd come back to Northern California. (I think Bob is secretly a Giants fan, anyway.)

    They want you to sign up to their site over the phone then send you a free coupon for food but you have to print it out. Yes, I carry around a printer all the time !! BS this is

    Friday Classic Car Night has become a recurring date for my 4yr old daughter and me. Lots of colors, fun people, and classic, if basic, food.

    Make sure you try the cherry coke with your burger. Also the seasoning salt is a must for your French fries!

    The burgers are more fast food than gourmet... gotta try something else on the menu next time. Warning: the parking lot in the back gets pretty full at lunchtime!

    It's Saturday afternoon and half the parking lot is blocked off. My tip is there are plenty of restaurants across the street.

    Get the French toast deep fried, not grilled. Squeeze a little of the orange wedge on it before adding syrup. Then smile, you are about to taste heaven.
