Ate here one late night upon arriving in Burbank after a long travel day. The Big Boy burger tasted like I remembered as a kid. Service was friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed it a lot.

Decent food at decent prices, with some nostalgic ambiance. Car show night can be crowded, though it's fun to see the variety of cool cars.

Really cool to visit the 1st Big Boy restaurant and America. My boys loved the "original" Big Boy hamburger & my wife had a southwest salad and enjoyed it also. I had the fried shrimp, but was let down with my overall meal. Everyone else...More

Remember the shakes that are wig extra in a metal container!? They still exist here! The burgers are great and the salad was huge. Take time to see this place and have a burger! Service is very good!

This is an authentic diner experience. You must try milshakes and chili cheese fries. Consider sharing because plates are enormous.

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.
