At breakfast you always feel rushed because there are usually so many people waiting but I didn't feel that way at Bob Evans. Our server, Kyonna was very friendly and made sure everything was just perfect. Kyonna and the other server handling part of the same section worked great as a team to ensure everyone always had a full glass... More

I came here after a night stay at the red roof inn in early July and have some great old fashion food. Very clean and great service!

Service was good, cheddar potato soup was filling, delicious, hot, and well topped. Rolls were fresh from the oven. Pot roast was home-made good, ample enough for me to box half up to take home. Dessert pick was a hot fudge sundae which was a perfect small size. The 3 course meal was under $11, plus we had a coupon... More

We loved eating here. Very clean, fast service and lots of food options. The price was reasonable too! It was close to our hotel. Glad we went there!

Ordered coffee, oatmeal bowl, egg white omelette and pancakes. Service a bit slow considering not many customers but food was hot and tasty.

We stopped here on our way to New York for breakfast. The meal was expensive, but good. The service was good as well! We would stop again!

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.
