Bob's Big Boy, Burbank

This Bob's Big Boy here in Burbank is the oldest remaining location in America,  built in 1949. It's Googie architecture and sign, designed by Wayne McAllister, is iconic in Los Angeles history and culture, making it a lovely little pit stop. Although it has had some remodeling and additions since the 50's, it still exudes nostalgia and charm, and not to mention has the best Ice Cream Sundaes! 


The iconic original Big Boy sign by McAllister, who embraced the automobile and Space Age. He also created other iconic circular drive-in restaurants around LA since the 1930's. At 70 ft tall, this is a true landmark!



California blue skies and waving Palm Trees <3


Big Boy checking out an old Ranchero...he has seen many classic cars, seeing as this Bob's Big Boy offered car-hop service and had classic car shows every Friday and Saturday night.




Hanging with Big Boy, wearing my favorite in casual wear, Atomic Swag!


Excited to get my Grilled Cheese, Fries and Ice Cream Sundae as you can tell!


Old Hollywood stars such as Bob Hope, Mickey Rooney and Debbie Reynolds were frequent diners at this Bob's. Scenes from the movie 'Heat' with Robert De Niro were also filmed here.



Sundaes for everyone!


Who doesn't love sweet little Nugget <3
