In the Greater Cincinnati area (which includes Northern Kentucky), Frisch’s Big Boy uses their signature tartar sauce on their burgers. Fortunately for me, it is available in grocery stores across the Midwest, including my new home, Illinois.
From bottom to top, their burger is constructed like this:
Bottom bun (toasted)
Pickles (3)
1/8 pound burger patty
American cheese slice (1)
Middle bun (toasted)
At least 2 TBSP. Frisch’s tartar sauce
Shredded lettice
1/8 pound burger patty
Top bun (toasted)

I've lived in Ohio and there was not blue cheese dressing on these burgers. It was a mayonnaise base with relish. My favorite burger still.

As others have noted...there were different versions depending on the state the franchisee was in. In my home state of Michigan, it was Elias Bros, and they used the 1000 Island, In Ohio it was Fisches and they used a Roquefort type sauce, and then off course the original Bob's in California where they used the relish. My preference is the one I grew up on, in MI...the 1000 Island version.

This is just one version of a big boy no need for anyone to talk bad about cause it isn't what they were use to. They change a bit from state to state.

I too worked for Bob's Big Boy and one ingredient you are missing in the relish is anchovies! yes for all you Bob's fans out there they put anchovies in the relish that is why some of my family members who also worked at Bob's at different times wouldn't eat the relish!

I was eating the big boy since the early 70's in arizona and they always used 100 island dressing. The burger Recipe was very good. It has been a long time since one.

I worked for Bob's Big boy for 3 years in the late 70's. The bottom and middle buns are spread with mayonnaise. The top patty gets red relish and a dash of salt. There are other Big Boy franchises around the country that have used 1000 Island dressing instead of the red relish, but that is how the original was made in California.
