This chain restaurant is always clean, friendly and efficient. The food is plain and simple but always tasty. This is a place that we always stop when traveling between Chicago and Louisville. A fine breakfast or lunch is predicable. If we had time, I would delve into Lafayette and look for a nice hometown place, but when traveling past on... More

We live in Michigan City, IN and travel to Indianapolis, IN frequently. We always make it a point to stop by this Bob Evans. We have always had such great service and great food here, even when they are super busy. From the minute we walk through the doors to the minute we leave, the staff is very courteous. Love... More

For a restaurant claiming ties to a farm, the sliced tomato I had with breakfast tasted more like a plastic factory.

We take our Mother here whenever we visit. She loves her fried mush. This is the only place that I know that serves this. We visit the restaurant on SR 26. Staff is friendly and helpful. Biscuits and gravy are delish. Had the candied bacon, I would have liked it a little warmer, but it was good.

We were looking for gluten-free options for breakfast, and while the Midwest is not exactly on top of this trend, we found happiness at Bob Evans. Clearly part of a chain in this part of the country, this was our first experience. It shares a parking lot with Denny's and we're glad we walked over here instead of there. As... More

We arrived around 800pm and were sat immediately-then after 10 minutes we ordered our drinks but then the waitresses were confused and both came up to the table but neither would take our order. Another 15 minutes and some tracking down the order was in. The food was well prepared and correct with good flavor. The pot roast and chicken... More

Family All had something different. Hot cakes, chicken pot pie, breakfast dishes and all were great. Wish we had these in Louisiana!

Bob Evans has the worlds best sausage hands down! Having lived in Ohio for many years and enjoying it when ever I wanted it I can only get the sausage now on road trips to the Midwest. I enjoyed a great breakfast at their small bar area. The server was absolutely fantastic for early in the morning and was constantly... More
