I'll take that to go, please

Bob's Big Boy

Bob's Big Boy drive-thruWalking back from last week's Dinwiddie walk, we approached Bob's Big Boy from the other direction. I noticed two things.

First, the Big Boy is a little intimidating from this angle. He brings to mind the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. Remember? "Well, there's something you don't see every day."

Second, Bob's has a drive-thru window. I remember noticing this when they opened, but I've never tried it, because I haven't figured out how it works. I mean, I know they can package up a dinner to go. I often order food to go. But this isn't fast food—they always tell you it'll be ready in 20-30 minutes. So what do you and all the others do after you place your order into the Bob's Big Boy speaker? Do you all wait in line for the next 20 minutes? And what if you get behind the guy who ordered that dinner that takes forever?

 I guess I'll have to try it out soon and find out. And get a bobble-head too.


  1. Being a Bob, I couldn't pass this up. If I ever look like this I'll get a referral to a plastic surgeon. I've made a couple of joke photos over the years with my son in front of Bob's, particularly the one on Wilshire in LA.

  2. I haven't seen one of these in years! Yes, I can't imagine doing this restaurant in a drive through - interesting.
