Friendly staff

As with most chain restaurants we got exactly what we expected in the way of food, so that was good. Our waiter was very pleasant and thoughtful, being there with what we needed before we asked for it. A pleasant visit.

Anytime I am home (I now live in Dallas), I stop at Bob Evans for breakfast with my family. The food is always done well and quickly. I have rarely had a bad experience there, and will continue to come here, as it is part of my definition of home.

Sausage gravy and biscuits are classic and delicious, many options and a special menu for restricted diets. Friendly staff.

Not all Bob Evans Restaurants are created equal. This location has a great staff from a supportive management to the friendly servers! We really enjoyed our visit. Dana P. was our server and took care of everything we needed. She was even patient and kind when we forgot to ask for something. We had breakfast. I love asking for pecans... More

Bob Evans offers great food at reasonable prices with excellent service, so you can't lose. This Bob Evans was very clean and comfortable. The food was great, we ate here both days that we were in the area. The Strawberry crepes were amazing!

The menu options allow for finding something for everyone. I like a good, home cooked type meal. I was able to get that at Bob Evans.

Growing up in Ohio, Bob Evans was a mainstay. In the 26 years I've lived in CA, I doubt there has been a trip "home" that didn't include a visit to one of my favorite places! Breakfast, lunch or dinner it's all great! My favorite breakfasts would be a toss up between the famous sausage gravy & biscuits or the... More

The last two times I called in for a family breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings I was put on indefinite hold by the same man, until I had to give up on waiting. This is too bad, because the carry out family breakfast was a good option our kids enjoyed previously. A couple of the people, not all, working... More
