Rude rude rude. I'm shocked. I thought the customer was always right. That's how I run my business. Honestly I did not know getting my own cup was a crime. I did tell them to kiss my batuty after I was confronted. The waitresses were almost as cold as the restaurant. Never again will I go there. Went down the... More

We don't have a Bob Evans where we live, so we always try to stop at one when we travel. The food is of good quality and the baked goods are amazing. We have never had a bad meal at Bob Evans. The staff at the Joliete, IL location were the friendliest we have come by.

You can't really expect much when going to these off the highway kind if places. However, you expect something. I expected to get a real egg omelette with vegetables, not dried out rubber powder eggs. I normally try to steer away from these kinds of places because the results are typically along these lines.

If you’re in a hurry and you’re craving a good turkey dinner with all of the trimmings, this is a good place to go. And it comes with a desert.

We had never been to a Bob Evans but knew the breakfast at our hotel was awful. We stopped because a couple in our group had been to the chain and liked it. We had a bad meal in this town the night before at a Chinese restaurant and were not sure what to expect. Shortly after we arrived, the... More

Stuck in Joliet close to this restaurant so gave it a whirl. Big mistake. Service was OK but slightly grumpy and it looked like the chef was on his lonesome ownsome. The restaurant was not even half full but we had a long wait for our potato-covered flounder (tasteless) with rock hard broccoli and soggy, sweet carrots and the pot... More

Service was good, even when they were busy. Carmel Latte Cappuccino thing was worth it. We went here for breakfast 2 days in a row. It was easy to get in and out of, and even though they were busy they seemed on the ball with everything.

As far as Bob Evans is concerned this is definitely not the best one. But we have actually had worse. Wouldn't stop here again.
