When The Beatles became a worldwide sensation in the 1960s, one would assume that they would only dine at the most expensive and luxurious restaurants. But on their 1965 American tour, they made an exception. They wanted to eat at an authentic American diner.
They spent those four days hosting parties and relaxing by the pool with friends at the house they were renting in Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills. The lads (minus Paul) were also experimenting with LSD. On the night of August 27, the Beatles finally got to meet their idol, Elvis Presley.
In recent years, the restaurant has revived 1950s nostalgia with the ongoing “Classic Car Show” on Friday nights where collectors gather at the Bob’s Big Boy parking lot to display their cars. Local resident and car aficionado Jay Leno has been known to show up at these events from time to time.
