Bob Evans Review & Giveaway

bob_evans_rest_thumbnail Living in Minnesota I don’t always get to visit yummy restaurants such as Bob Evans. The only time we get to go is when we drive out of state and visit my mom in Virginia.

IMG_4775I was sent a great kit from Bob Evans to learn more about their Fit from the Farm meals. I’ll fess up, my favorite item at Bob Evans is their Smiley Face Potatoes from the kids menu. Guilty pleasure.

I suggested to my folks while we were visiting them if we could go out to dinner at Bob Evans. They were more than happy to go because they like Bob Evans. We got there around 7:30pm with 7 of us in tow.

The waitress seemed a bit frazzled. Maybe it was because we’d just gotten done with the holiday weekend, I don’t know. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Breast from the Fit from the Farm ® menu. The rest of the family decided to go with their usual choices.Chicken BreastOh my goodness, this was a de-lish meal! I ate every single morsel. The chicken had a wonderful seasoning on it so I didn’t feel like I was missing anything without a gravy or sauce to go with it. I had a huge serving of broccoli that I scarfed and I ate the entire potato, skin and all. My plate was clean when I finished. I would absolutely order that meal again.IMG_4783Doodle unfortunately didn’t get exactly what he ordered. He got the pancakes with chocolate chips but they just piled the chips on top and then flipped them to burn them to the pancake. Kind of a bummer so I sent them back.

My brother M asked for an omelet (can’t remember which one) but it didn’t come at all like it was described. He was embarrassed by the attention being focused on him so he just kept asking us to leave it alone.IMG_4782Dessert came and M wanted to get something so my boys chimed in. Unfortunately, the waitress came back with desserts only for my boys and not my brother.

On to our drive home. I decided that instead of actually eating at the restaurant, we’d use their Carry Out option. So, I used my Droid2 to look up a location about an hour ahead of our drive. I called when we were about 10 minutes from the restaurant.

I have to tell you, Tommy was such a kind and helpful guy. I had no idea where I was going and he got us to his restaurant without issue.

This time I decided to order the Chicken, Spinach and Tomato Pasta. I love all three of those items and combined together sounded delicious!chicken spinach tomato pastaAll of our food came up at different times so by the time I left some of the food was cold. My pasta came without the chicken. They said they had given me catsup and syrup (for my kids) but that wasn’t in the bags. Thankfully I know better than to drive away without checking so I had to run back inside a couple of times to get the needed items.

That being said, the service at this restaurant was phenomenal and the food, at least mine, was scrumptious and again I ate every single bite.

No photo because we were on the road and I didn’t know where my camera was. Sorry.

Here’s your opportunity to win a FREE Fit From the Farm Meal Of Your Choice.

Required: Visit Bob Evans and tell me which Fit From the Farm menu item sounds yummy. (you can also look under the Lunch & Dinner links on the left side for more options)
