Travel back in time to the 1950's Americana! Prices are very low, and quality is great. They don't try to be something they are not, which is refreshing. I am not big on fast food, but this was great! Tip: On Fridays they host a...More

Bob's is the quintessential hamburger joint. You can still see the remnants of the car hop service bays from the 60's. Its all about the atmosphere. Very friendly staff and the menu hasn't really changed in 50 years

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.
