We had 2 of the fit breakfasts, it was so delicious, and they really love to give you lots of coffee...even one to go!

I've been to this location numerous times for breakfast with good consistent results. I'm visit for business and the tables allow me to spread out and read my newspaper while I wait and have my meal. The waitstaff is good and friendly.

Overnight stay in motel behind Bob Evans. Convenient location. Staff pleasant, but despite being there during a not so busy period for late supper, we waited an extremely long time for our food. Staff was apologetic.

Always fast and good food. I've been a fan of Bob Evans for years. This one is excellent. Will continue to patronize on future visits.

We ate there twice while staying at a hotel in Independence. Parking is sufficient. Physical makeup is standard OK. Waitresses are good. Good overall service. This location also sells pastries. We bought some and it was good. We will go again if in the area.

Went for breakfast and has Buttermilk Hotcakes with sides of bacon and sausage patties. The hotcakes were dinner plate size, which was nice (and I couldn't finish it). The sausage patties were okay and bacon was a little too crispy for my preference. Our server was amazing and addresses a bill discrepancy very quickly and with a very friendly attitude.... More
