“Inexpensive, homey food with spotty service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Good gravies, sauces on entrees ordered. Fine, inexpensive selection on children's menu including lots of healthy side options. Reasonably-priced foods. Received a friendly welcome--but inattentive service overall. Had to ask for straws, silverware, etc.; did not receive salad promptly; did not receive opportunity to order dessert. It was difficult to determine the cause for the challenge, as the restaurant did not seem busy and looked fully staffed. Slow service delayed our arrival home and made the meal more challenging for our child. Our first experience at this restaurant (both with the site and with the chain).

“A good turkey dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

When I have a taste for roast turkey and dressing this is my go to place. The food is good, the wait staff attentive, and the pricing is reasonable. The only complaint I do have is that occasionally when I have a salad, the dinner is delivered way before I'm done with the salad, but they are very accomodating about putting it under the heat lamps until I am done.

“Always Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Try the Pot Roast sandwich. You won't be dissapointed. Ask for gravy. Turkey dinners are great also.

“A complete meal for under $10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We visited Bob Evans a few weeks ago for my brother in laws homecoming. He just returned from Afghanistan and wanted home style food. We noticed they had an apple pie special where part of the proceeds got to veterans then the assistant manager asked what we were celebrating and when we told him our story he offered a free meal to the veteran.
For $9.99 you get a soup or salad, fresh bread of your choice, an entree and a choice of selected desserts. What a deal and so delicious.
Thank you Bob Evans for supporting our Veterans and thank you Lynchburg for outstanding customer service.
