Originally founded in 1936 in Glendale, California, Big Boy?s flagship location initially bore the name Bob?s Pantry after owner Bob Wian. At a diner?s request, Bob piled two beef patties onto a bun to create the Classic Big Boy?an original double-decker hamburger that would become so popular that the small burger stand would eventually grow into a franchise of more than 100 U.S. locations. Legend has it that Bob named the creation after one of his most loyal customers: a 6-year-old boy in droopy overalls who would one day ascend to mascot stardom.

Though the menu has since expanded to include sandwiches, homestyle dinners, and breakfast, the eatery still serves its namesake burger stacked high with two patties, american cheese, shredded lettuce, and a special sauce. A large, overall-clad statue stands guard at every location, reminding patrons of the restaurant?s humble beginnings and that children will turn to stone should they not eat enough cheeseburgers.
