An old photo, by my dad, Michael G. Stewart, of Bob’s Diner, Fairfax, VA
The diner was originally known as the Streamliner Diner. It changed its name to Bob’s Diner, named after its second owner, Bob Parcelles, who had run the 29 diner in 1952. A large addition was added to Bob’s in the 1970s and the name changed to Bob’s Beef House. It went out of business in 1985, was remodeled and reopened as Mama’s Italian Restaurant.
