Bob’s Big Boy

A pretty fancy website dedicated to Bob's Big Boy returning to Pasadena, replacing Baja Fresh on South Lake Avenue


  1. Brigham, this stuff is making me hungry. :-) Thanks for the updates. You sure get around to it all.

  2. Steve says

    That Baja Fresh was a small place and in a strip mall. It doesn’t strike me as a good place (or big enough) for a Bob’s Big Boy.

  3. Robbie Brody says

    Brigham! Thanks for the updates. I’m sorry to see that Baja Fresh go, as that is a favorite of mine. It always seemed busy; I wonder what happened? Can Big Boy fit in that little space?

    And, finally, what are we going to do about Twin Palms. What a loss for Pasadena!

  4. Lawrence says

    It’s interesting to see Bob’s make a comeback. I’m curious about Papa rich and I’m looking forward to trying Choza Mama.

  5. Cindy says

    Thanks for the updates! I’m also sorry to see Baja Fresh go – there’s still the one on the east side near Ralphs on Foothill. I assume Bob’s Big Boy has to be combining some space from either side? There’s the mini cell phone place, dentist and the Pampas furniture around it. Weird change. Brigham, let us know how if you find out h0w the space is situated.

  6. It’s hard to keep up with all these restaurants openings & then closings. If you wait too long, they’re no longer open!

    Anything new opening in the Paseo area on the north side?

    • Nothing really new except a tie store and a new GNC (nutrition) coming to Paseo. I am still watching the Miche Bakery closely, but it’s slowed down significantly in build out.

  7. Hi Brigham!

    Thanks so much for the exposure! We really appreciate it. Next time you see us, come by and say hi! We’d love to feed you some delicious food! :)
