  1. Mary, it’s been decades since I’ve been in a Bob’s Big Boy. I seem to recall thinking the best thing on their menu was a hot ham and Swiss cheese sandwich. Having grown up with one Southern grandmother, I would NEVER have ordered fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy there! Look at that gravy–it’s BROWN gravy (from a mix or a can, I’m sure). You gotta try my grandma’s cream gravy. Excellent review.

    Hey Jean – I really should have known better but fried chicken sounded so good to me that day! So sad that it turned out to be not so great. Your grandma’s cream gravy already sounds more awesome than what I had at BBB!

    I don’t think of Big Boy’s having great food…although their onion rings are some of the best I’ve ever had…the patty melt is what I always order…my husband gets the Big Boy Combo. They are known from their blue cheese salad dressing and sell it along with the seasoning salt. …Costco Sells the dressing…

    Being in Southern California your luckly to be able to experience Bob’s. For they have expanded with more stores within the past 3-5 years. I live in Northern California and make it a point to visit the Burbank location when in the south land…if your in the area on any Friday night, it’s all about the cars…

    You have got to admit it’s a lot better then McDonalds or Burger King!!
