We stopped and had a lunch here. Nice looking from the outside; air conditioning was good, Worn tables were very clean. Restrooms were clean. This place has been here for a while but was decently kept.

Quick, efficient service from our server; an olderwoman--she was funny and pleasant deal with. She checked on us regularly and quickly during our meal. Our food came promptly and was hot.

Our one order was a Super Big Boy Combo. Nice looking plate, fresh burger, hot fries, nice side salad. It was inhaled.

Breakfast is served all day. Our other order was a California Benedict: English muffin halves, each topped with a patty of turkey sausage, poached egg, a tasty but not too hot salsa and avocado. All was fresh and hot, the muffin was nicely toasted and crispy, the eggs were properly poached, salsa was warmed, and the avocado was very good and not over-ripe. Of the side options, fruit (a melon and grape bowl) was chosen. A good side salad was also ordered, ranch on the side; good salad, good ranch dressing.

I really did not expect too much when we were seated, but this meal was pretty dang good and everything was reasonably priced.

Recommended. Try the California Benedict.

For some of us "old timers" with kids and grandkids a stop at Bob's Big Boy is a must do! The restaurant is clean, the service is prompt and friendly, and the food is always well prepared and delicious. If you have never had a Bob's Big Boy burger you are in for a treat. Top it off with a salad with the best blue cheese dressing anywhere and you have a great meal that is sure to please. But don't stop there...leave room for the hot fudge cake....one of the best desserts around. I am sure you will leave with a full stomach and a smile on your face. This nostalgic location is a hit with the kids and grandkids, and I am sure you will agree that Bob's Big Boy is worth a repeat visit. It is for us!

We stopped for lunch on the way to the desert. Hamburgers, fries, onion rings, patty melt, lots of cold drinks, and service were all very good. Cannot fault this place for anything but overfeeding us :)

We've always wanted to stop here, but never had the time. Today we did. We stopped for breakfast and the food was Great! We all had something different, from Apple French toast, to omelets, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage and more. None of us left wanting any more food and nothing was left on our plates. Recommend you stop if your in the area!

Food and service is very good here. Hubby and I had the classic burger combo, delish! My kids had the burger and some breakfast. Everything was tasty and oh so good. We will definitely come back when we're nearby.
