Bob’s Footlongs


Classic American Diner Since 1949
505 12th St, Fortuna, CA 95540

(707) 725-2016
Mon-Sat 10-8

Pure nostalgia is the best way to describe the menu and the “Happy Days” ambiance at this landmark classic American diner. Bob’s Footlongs was founded originally in 1949 at the Humboldt County Fair. The current downtown location on 12th St (with era-specific decor of coral and white striped walls) has been a staple in the community since 1967. Students who once walked here from Fortuna High (or worked at Bob’s as teens) are now bringing their kids and grandkids to Bob’s to experience the same made-to-order freshly-dipped corn dogs, hush puppies, footlong dogs, burgers and fries. Enjoy specialties like a Chili Cheese Dog, the Deluxe Cheeseburger with onion rings, or order like a local and have the Four Way Fries smothered in chili, cheese and onions. Wash that down with a root beer float or a tasty milkshake. Finish a meal with soft serve ice cream, a chocolate sundae or a banana split.

Double D Steak is a warm, comfortable “Friendly Fortuna” place to gather. The best advice you’ll get from those who’ve dined there is to show up hungry and save room for your main course. Entrees are served with freshly baked bread, an antipasto plate, cheese ravioli, soup, salad and your choice of side. Steak offerings, flame-broiled to perfection, include the classic Steak Oscar, a filet mignon with crab, grilled asparagus and lemon-caper hollandaise sauce, the Bacon Bleu Mushroom New York Strip or Surf and Turf filet medallions complemented by a broiled lobster tail. Seafood lovers order the Shrimp Lovers Trio of prawns, buttery calamari steak or fresh Pan-seared or Beer Battered Halibut. The Clam Chowder gets rave reviews, too. The menu is extensive and includes chicken and pasta specialties in addition to vegan and vegetarian options. Desserts are decadent and include daily specials. Happy hour is Tues-Sat 4-5 and Double D has a full bar, wine list and an ample selection of beers.
