Restaurant Guide - Bob Evans
As regular visitors to Florida over the past 5 years, we are used to dining out regularly (it is so cheap compared to eating out in the UK) but hadn’t really found the “perfect” place for breakfast but I’m pleased to say that we have now found it!
Following on from recommendations from friends, we decided to try Bob Evans on Highway 27, just south of exit 55 off the I4.
We walked into the restaurant and into what felt like a different era! Gingham check curtains at the windows and glass cases of apple pie and other goodies told us that it was going to feel typically American, which is exactly what we were looking for.
We got there at around 9am and were taken immediately to our table and then spent the next 15 minutes trying to decide what to have from the very extensive menu! We got very engrossed in the history of the restaurant chain, discovering that Bob Evans used to serve breakfast from his own homestead and it was only when he couldn’t find a good range of sausage meat that he decided to make his own and the rest, as they say, is history. The quality of the food and the service quickly meant that Bob Evans became a very successful business and a popular place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
All the menu items sounds like Mom’s home cooked food and it certainly smells and tastes like it too.
Everything you could think of was on the breakfast menu – pancakes, eggs, sausages, bacon, fruit, great food galore!
Having seen some enormous platters of food go past our table, I decided that I needed something small, plain and simple, so went for the Mini Sampler. This included egg, home fries, sausage, bacon and biscuit. Yes, I know it’s called “mini” but don’t let that fool you, it’s still a huge plate of food!
It was served promptly and was hot and tasty and filled me up for the rest of the day. I couldn’t eat anything else until dinner time! It’s a great way to stock up on energy before visiting a park or going out for the day. My husband tried the pancakes and his plate was equally as large and tasty.
What I really liked was the variety – you could have eggs every which way but loose! The omelettes looked enormous and came with all sorts of fillings. You could have oatmeal if you preferred, or fruit or toast or indeed any combination of any of the menu items. They also do a low-carb menu, a kids menu and an over 55s menu – so there’s really something for all the family.
Although we always visit the Bob Evans on Highway 27, there are 2 further restaurants that we know of on the 192 and there’s bound to be a restaurant conveniently located near you.
You should give it a try, I thoroughly recommend it. We're certainly going to try it for lunch next time we're in Florida, it's a firm favourite with us now.
You can find the full menu range on their website (www. bobevans. com) where they also have some great recipes to try out.
