Oldest Bobs Big Boy Burbank
Just an exit away off the Ventura Freeway sits the oldest Bobs Big Boy restaurant in Burbank, California. Built in 1949, the diner features 1950s coffee shop architecture, an oversized roof and curved windows. Its glowing neon sign stands 70 feet tall. Now a State Historical Point of Interest, the restaurant features car hop service on Saturday and Sunday nights and a classic car show in the parking lot every Friday night. The Burbank restaurant also has a plaque in one booth commemorating a visit by The Beatles in 1965 while on tour; regulars call the table The Beatle Booth.
