Bob Evan’s Colonial Dressing

I’ll be honest — I don’t get to Bob Evans very often myself. I like it when I do go, but there are way too many other places I want to try. And I prefer local, Mom and Pop’s-type places to national chains, anyway.

But my Dad and Mom are huge fans of good ol’ Bob.
They go at least every couple weeks and more often when they travel. I guess it’s no mystery why you’ll find most Bob Evan’s near interstate exit ramps.
