Good food and Service

An oasis in a rough area. Ate her twice on breakfast on our trip. Waitresses were friendly and service was great. Good breakfast options that tasted good.

This restaurant service has really declined. You have to wait to long for the food ad the staff seem little to not interested and providing quality service. My opinion dine down the street at Bakers Square the service is lot better.

The Red Roof Inn Joliette does not offer breakfast and this was next door. Bob Evans has always been a favorite spot for breakfast foods. I had blueberry pancakes with blue berries on top with a side of Turkey sausage and it was delicious.

Have not been to a BE for maybe 2 years. Went there for breakfast last Saturday AM. I went in hungry but sure didn't leave that way. The bottomless coffee cup was only the start and I enjoyed every bite of my breakfast!! Usually my breakfast consists of a yogurt or cereal but this was anything but. Great pancakes, over... More

We have eaten at many Bob Evans Restaurants over the years and were happy to see it located right beside The Reed Roof Inn where we stayed. It had been a long day of driving and we needed a good meal. This Bob Evans was one of the best if not the best one we have ever been in. The... More

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.

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
