We aren't just down on the farm, we were born on one. It began in Rio Grande, OH when Bob Evans opened a 12-stool, 24 hour restaurant serving hot, home-style meals at a good value. Nearly 60 years later, Bob Evans restaurants continues to provide farm-fresh goodness for breakfast, lunch and dinner at our table or yours.

Currently headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Bob Evans Restaurants has grown to nearly 500 locations in 18 states. Bob Evans believed in treating strangers like friends and friends like family; and those principles are alive today at every Bob Evans Restaurant.

As a private company owned by Golden Gate Capital, Bob Evans Restaurants is focused on providing quality food and hospitality to every guest at every meal, each and every day. Our success is built on the basics: high-quality food and heartfelt hospitality. In the words of our founder, “Everybody is somebody at Bob Evans.” We invite you to join us for a meal as we bring the values of the farm to the table by providing, flavorful meals at our place or yours.


The Bob Evans Farm in Rio Grande, OH was home to Bob Evans and his wife Jewell for nearly 20 years. Today, you can still visit the homestead where they lived, grab a bite to eat in the spot of the original location or spend the weekend at the annual Farm Festival held every fall.
