Bob's Big Boy
Westfield Parkway Plaza Mall
937 Parkway Plaza
El Cajon, CA 92020
For most of my childhood we ate at Big Boy’s in Michigan and while visiting we made a special stop at one of them just so Jerry could see how similar they really were to Bob’s Big Boy’s in California.
The atmosphere is pretty much the same and many of the food items are the same as well, but the one major item Bob’s is missing is the Slim Jim, my all-time favorite sandwich. They have a similar item that I ordered here at Bob’s but it just was not the same. I forgot what they called it but it had sliced ham, pepperoni, cheese, lettuce, tomato on this absolutely wonderful dried tomato rye sort of bread. And, even though it satisfied my taste pallet it’s just not the same.
I did enjoy the strawberry malt…
Jerry had the Super Big Boy which is still the 2 patties of 100% pure ground beef with American cheese, lettuce and their special sauce on a sesame seed bun, only bigger! After only one bite he had to put it down on his plate and begin eating it with a knife and fork, but he enjoyed every bite and the fries were so delicious, crispy on the outside but soft and flavorful on the inside.
We are going to be here for over 30 days so most likely we will be dining there again and will let you know if we try other items on their menu.
