Good vegetarian breakfast

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

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!

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.

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
