Los Angeles Ad Town: Sensa at Bob's Big Boy in Downey
One of the bigger architectural conservation victories in recent years was the restoration of the former Johnie's Broiler in Downey. Now Bob's Big Boy Broiler, the whole building was halfway torn down when concerned citizens and politicians put a stop to it. A rehab has helped give the building a new sheen and make it one of the most filmed buildings in the region (including "Mad Men"). We visited Bob's Boy Broiler last year and filed this report/restaurant review; read it here.
And in the meantime, here's a recent commercial (from Sensa) with the Bob's in the backgroud.
And here's a pic from our visit in 2011:
