There are Bob Evans throughout Ohio (and many other states), and they all have pretty much the same fare. I am not a fan of their home fries. The potatoes were obviously previously frozen before warmed on the grill. That's right; I said "warmed" and not "browned" or "grilled." Often the home fries are mushy inside. I like my eggs poached, and every time I order poached eggs at Bob Evans, I am told that they do not poach eggs at Bob Evans, but they will baste them for me. Not quite the same thing, but does the cook really go that much out of the way to throw a couple of eggs in a pot of boiling water? As for grits, they serve them on weekends until 2 pm. If you are hungry for grits, go to Cracker Barrel or Waffle House. Grits are not Bob Evans's forte. I also like the fruit plate, but it seems very overpriced, at $7.99, for quantity. The pumpkin bread is incredible. There isn't enough vegetarian fare on the menu, something the restaurant should look into.

Bob Evans is a local chain. The phone book lists 28 of them in the greater Columbus area, and they're all much alike.

The big plus is that they're open early enough to allow you to eat there and still get to work by 7:00am.

The decor is imitation early American, though there are copies of historical photos on the walls, and these vary by store. It isn't enough, though, to make any single restaurant distinctive.

The prices are especially reasonable on weekdays, when they have specials. A breakfast of one Bob Evans sausage or two strips of bacon, one egg, and one slice of french toast is something like $3.99. (Bob Evans sausages are excellent). The "light" breakfast of one turkey sausage (which is surprisingly good), imitation egg, a small bowl of pineapple, cantaloupe, and grapes, and two slices of dry wheat toast is something like $4.99. Jelly and apple butter are in little packets on the table. They have a full menu of fancy omelettes, french toast, pancakes, oatmeal, skillet concoctions, but no grits.

Coffee is by the cup. The waitress refills it pretty often.

The restaurant chain is gradually moving toward a no-smoking policy. This particular restaurant still allows smoking in a few booths toward the back of the place, while others in the chain have eliminated smoking entirely.
