Tijuana's Big Boy: Iconic Hangout Turns 45


The architectural history of Baja California and California is closely linked.

I remember JB's Big Boy as a kid... didn't they go on to become a major burger chain? I'm thinkin' Hardees or sumpin'...



If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.
