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.

Breakfast selections are very good. Service by the staff is very good and they are very courteous to the customers.

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.

We arrived late in town tired and we just wanted to get a quick bite and get to sleep. Our waitress was not very attentive. My drink glass sat empty as she walked by several times. Then we were sitting where we could see the meals were set to be put out and our meals sat there for quite a... More

We came in around 10 am during a breakfast rush. Sat at the counter and was amazed at the team work of the wait staff and cooks. Great job would definately come back. Food and service was quick and tasty

I ate at this restaurant on April 26, 2014 at about 4:00 p.m. There were four females behind the counter when I walked in. I assume they were all waitresses. They were in a huddle talking. Finally one of them seated me. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of soup. She brought me a CUP OF SOUP.... More

Bob Evans is a usual staple for me when travelling because it's always good food at a decent price. They left a jug of coffee on the table so we never had to worry about waiting on a refill and gave to-go cups for us as we ready to leave. Service was a little slow, but nothing to complain about.
