    We mostly go to Bob Evans for breakfast but also have been there for a few lunches and at least one dinnertime.

    They have a wide assortment of foods and meal sizes for breakfast so you can get something that suits you whether you are skimpy in the morning like me or a hearty morning eater like my wife.
    I usually go for toast (whole wheat), coffee, juice, and one egg over easy.
    My wife like pancakes with sausage, golden-brown home fries and a fruit dish with her coffee.
    They also have omeletes, french toast, waffles, biscuits, pastries, muffins and hot or cold cereals. They have even added a 55+ menu to their breakfast list so that you can downsize some of the orders without having to miss anything.

    Lunches for us at Bob Evans are typically sandwich platters with diet cokes. Turkey Bacon Melt or Chicken or Turkey Club sandwiches with fries or chips is a good sized meal for reasonable price.

    The Dinner menu is probably the most extensive with everything from salad platters, soups and salad meals to meat loaf or fried steak. I've had their open-face beef sandwich with gravy au jus and it was pretty good ( a bit filling though). My wife chose marinated steak tips, with grilled mushrooms on egg noodles. Everything was delicious.

    The store itself has a gift shop in the entryway. You are escorted by a hostess into the dining area where they mostly have booths but also have an alcove with larger tables. The booths have high walls with frosted glass separators to reduce overall noise in the area and give you some sense of privacy. The staff (waitress, helpers, cleaners, cashier) are all pleasant.

    We look for Bob Evans when we are on vacation because we know we will get good food in a nice sit-down environment without any hassles.
