Big Boy of the West.

Bob's Big Boy

One of only five remaining restaurants of this once-abundant chain in Southern California, the Norco Bob's Big Boy is unique for being the only one with a modified statue. The Boy wears a cowboy hat and boots in keeping with Norco's designation as "Horsetown USA."

The restaurant displays several standard issue Big Boy statues, but only one cow-Boy. He stands outside the entrance, on the north side.
