I love finding a new favorite restaurant. Eating out has been more of a luxury these days, so I love it even more when my new favorite restaurant not only has good food, but also affordable prices. Last night, the “fam” and I drove up to a nearby Bob Evans. Since I’m not originally from the east coast, Bob Evans was a new adventure for me. I’d seen their branded sausage products in the store, but hadn’t eaten in the restaurant.
We walked into the restaurant and were greeted by the hostess who sat us at a large table. We were eaters on a mission to sample some of the 10 meals from the Bob Evans Farmhouse Deals Meal menu. The Farmhous Deals Meal menu includes:
It was difficult to choose which to eat since they all looked so tasty. After much pondering we ordered and then sat back to observe the restaurant. We were all impressed by the “vibe” of the restaurant. The music wasn’t too loud, it was bright, clean, and homey. The food came out very quickly – piping hot and looking delicious.
From the left going clockwise, you have the Sausage Biscuit Bowl, the Homemade Meat Loaf Knife & Fork Sandwich, Chicken-N-Noodles Deep-Dish Dinner, and my plate of Spaghetti with Meat Sauce. Once the pictures were taken, we dug in.
The food was amazing. Everyone was totally impressed with how fresh the food tasted. I loved that my meat sauce was made with Bob Evans sausage and had real chunks of tomato in it. The pasta was cooked perfectly as well (which isn’t a given for many restaurants.) I also tried some of the Sausage Biscuit Bowl and discovered why Bob Evans’s famous “sausage gravy” is famous. It’s GOOD. Try it and you’ll love it too. It’s a savory gravy with chunks of sausage mixed in. Take that on top of scrambled eggs, more sausage, and a fresh biscuit and you have a delicious breakfast for dinner.
I didn’t hear too much about the meatloaf sandwich, although I think that’s because our tester was too busy eating it. By the time I had put the camera away, the sandwich and mashed potatoes were half eaten. Our tester said it was a hearty dish that was so good, he’d order two next time. Finally, the Chicken-N-Noodles Deep-Dish Dinner got rave reviews for tasting like a chicken pot pie. Biscuits, mashed potatoes, and chicken noodle soup created a tasty dinner.
Don’t those all sound delicious? They were. The portions were generous as well, and would satisfy most adult-sized appetites. I only ate half of my spaghetti (the rest I’ll be eating for lunch today.) Just to show you how we practically scraped our plates clean:
And remember, all of these were just $6! That means we fed an entire group of four for just $24!
This morning I overheard two of the testers planning their next trip up to Bob Evans. It truly was an amazing experience. Good food, good environment, good restaurant. If you’re looking for delicious and affordable dinner options, definitely check out the Bob Evans Farmhouse Deal Meals where you can choose from 10 meals for $6.
