Some diners at the Bob's Big Boy Restaurant in Burbank were skeptical when they discovered Tuesday that the state may designate the 43-year-old restaurant an official "California Point of Historical Interest." "What a joke," said Jerry Abrahmson, a native New Yorker, who was eating a piece of apple pie at the counter.
