What better place for a double-deck hamburger than Bob’s Big Boy family restaurant in Burbank?
And what better person to enjoy it with, than Mark Frauenfelder, the guy who launched BoingBoing and Make magazine.
Built in 1949, this is the oldest Bob’s still standing. According to a bronze plaque out front, “it was designed by respected architect Wayne McAllister, incorporating the 1940s transitional design of streamline modern style while anticipating the freeform 50s coffee shop architecture.”
