First off, we love a good Bob Evans and seek them out on our roadtrips. All the ones near us in the Chicago area have closed. Anyway, We stopped in at this one on our way to Nashville and it did not disappoint. Good food, fast service and friendly staff. All good! Keep it up!

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Mt. Vernon. Although they serve breakfast all day, I eat here for lunch occasionally. Prices are a little above average, but its always quality food. The grilled salmon is served with broccoli that is always cooked perfect and that's hard to do! Friendly staff and quality food!

Stopped for breakfast before my meeting. Not many cars in parking lot should have been a clue. Over cooked biscuits and sausages. Waitress was exceptional how and brought me property cook meal. Not what the advertising portrayed.

Bob Evans is one of my family's favorite places. I was kind of cool on the menu (my tastes, like i said, family loves it). but I feel they have expanded it in the last year. I really like the pot roast though it is a tad greasy and was a tad smaller than I remember. Although to be fair... More

I had never been to Bob Evans for breakfast but this won't be the last time. it was an absolutely delicious meal. the variety was huge and we probably tasted almost everything. this particular Bob Evans had a very friendly waitress and the food came very quickly and we were very happy.

The best value when using or not using coupons. The quality of the food is good to great and there is no lack of excellent service.

We don't have one near us so any time we see one while traveling try to stop once and this was it for our week long trip to the Smokey Mountains. Ordered breakfast in the late evening for dinner and it was perfect - hard to mess up an omelet. Server was friendly and helpful. A kid ordered from the... More
