Bob's Big Boy, Downey, Calif: Reborn diner

t was gone. Bulldozed into a scrap pile like far too much American history. Johnie's Broiler was just an old fashioned drive-in restaurant, wasn't it? It was more than that to the city of Downey, California. This was part of the town's soul, a beautiful jewel from an optimistic age, a landmark whose googie architecture had delighted area residents for generations. And it was gone.
But sometimes, miracles happen. Due largely to the efforts of dedicated individuals, the Modernism Committee of the Los Angeles Conservancy, and the City of Downey, an irreplacable local landmark has risen from the rubble of the wrecking ball...

Well,
This finish line is seriously in sight! Oct 19th Monday is Opening Day!
We have almost done it! Cruise Nites will be happening on Wednesdays just like in 80's-90's. The lights are lit. training is taking place
and people keep walking in and asking if we are open yet!

So bring your Mid Century Modern Motor-vator and come get served by by dazzling dolls in your car under the canopy. Its what we all have been waiting for! Come welcome a Bob's Big Boy Broiler for a new millenium.

I'll say that its spooky looking around it,cuz one would think and feel that it was built in 58 still.

Thanks, Chris, need lots of positive thoughts and prayers so I can heal and get back over to Harvey's/Johnie's/Bob's! If you blink your eyes and glance back at these pix, you can't help but smile...it's just business as usual!

Since I can't drive or be up and about, I would like to ride over to the Broiler on Halloween night in the Ghostbusters ambulance!! That would be too cool, to just lie there under the car canopy with a drive-in tray clipped to the side sipping a Silver Goblet milkshake!!!!

The last time I talked to the Ghostbusters guy was at Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake during the Red Cross Blood Drive...does anyone have his contact info???

I have to be there.

DOWNEY - It was hard to tell the hipsters from the squares Monday, but owner Jim Louder was more concerned about the smiles on their faces.

"The support we've been getting is really touching," Louder said. "We're going to be here a long time."...

The old "Fat Boy" mascot from the Johnie's days is up again at the Broiler and he's HUGE.

I had tried to post from the Broiler, but somehow screwed it up. So I got to go there Saturday and it is indeed awesome. The architecture is very cool and I really love the sparkling ceiling with the atomic lighting!

I was never there when it was the Broiler (didnt live in LA then) but I would imagine it would make any Broiler fan happy. I think the architects did a great job!

:D Thanx, Happy Bunny,
We as Coalition To Save The Broiler Members along Fmr Mod-Com Chair influence will gladly take that compliment. It was a very long and hard road to travel down and at times it almost looked impossible, but there was never a time that we didn't "feel in our hearts that it wouldn't get done". Merry X-mas and hope that you visit it many times again in the coming New Year.

Finally got there. One thing that surprised me was the large "STEAKS SHAKES PANCAKES" lettering inside, apparently from one of the old 1950s/1960s signs. I remember that from the old Culver City Bob's, and I think either the Buena Park or Anaheim had it on their sign as well. The manager didn't know where that came from, or even that Bob's used to have that on their signs, but he said that the letters are made from tin, and that they were rusty and painted white when they arrived, so that sounds like they're original. And he sold me a copy of Adriene's book. :D

My only quibble is that the "Bob's" lettering on the big sign doesn't look quite right. At least it doesn't quite match the Burbank/Toluca Lake font, which has slightly thicker letters. Oh well.

And because I just happened to come across it today, here's an old photo of the Eagle Rock Bob's.

"reBobinated"

Is that the technical term for reversing a Bobectomy?

Either that, or for one that's become discomBobulated.
