We stopped here for dinner. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. We ordered and waited almost 25 minutes for our meal. I could hear our waitress yelling at the cooks about taking so long. Our servers tried their best but something is wrong when it takes that long. I wanted to rate them poor but everything was fine except the... More

I said "If we are shopping in Mount Vernon we are eating at Bob Evans's. I can get the border scramble omelet, fresh fruit cup and French toast. All delicious. Coffee good when fresh. Hubby going for crepes. Can't go wrong there. It's just off I-57/I-64.

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

Great waffles and service. Really attentive service in fact even though it had just opened. Worth visiting.

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.
