This roadside delight designed by the late Wayne McAllister was restored in the 90's after being close to meeting the fate of other great roadside eateries... the wrecking ball. Thanks in part to the L.A. Conservancy's Modern Committee, this classic eatery can still be enjoyed today.


Bob's was built in 1949 and now has the distinction of being the oldest remaining Bob's Big Boy in the nation. Bob's received the State of California designation of a State Point of Historical Interest after a successful restoration effort that began in 1993. Today, the lobby is always full of hungry patrons ready to dig into the classic Big Boy combo or another mouth watering dish from the expanded menu.
