I was stranded in Florence Kentucky one time and the one saving grace was a Big Boy next to a liquor store. So I went in there and there was a family of four with the mom and dad both smoking, blowing smoke right into their kids' faces and the mom was pregnant. The waitress was maybe 18 and had a face beautiful for the pictures. I hope she made it. I went to that liquor store and drank a lot of vodka. That's what I remember about Big Boy. I don't think they have them in my neck of the woods.
Last time I went to one I was a little kid and it was still called Bob's Big Boy.
There's maybe a hundred left in America, sans Bob after the original company went bankrupt. They are huge in Japan though.
I'm surprised there's not more crossover with restaurants. Sure, it's easy to find anime and Japanese restaurants and things in the states, but attempts like Todai have pretty much gone tits up, whereas Hard Cock Cafe and Big Boy, KFC and the rest seem to be flourishing over there while they barely seem to exist over here. I for one would like to see more Japanese chains make it over to the states. That's why we have the Sister City program. You get our shitty food and we get yours!
Huge in Japan?
The only big boys I've seen are these:
I'd really like to see the high end dining experience of Japanese Denny's in the US. I hate it when the boss takes us to Denny's state side.
Seriously, just look at this menu: http://www.dennys.jp/menu/
Sadly prices are kind of high
Allow me to clarify.
There are 2.5 times more Big Boy restaurants in Japan then there are in America.

I've always loved Jonathan Winters and I had forgotten about these big boy ads. I'll never forget when he showed up on The Tonight Show with Robin Williams. I thought for sure Carson was going to keel over from laughter right there on the set.

"Big Boy Blooper" can mean so many things on the Internet.

We have a Big Boy, it has a breakfast buffet and a large statue outside of the mascot, known locally as "The Statue of Liberty for Fat People."
