At Bob Evans Restaurants, road trips are even more meaningful, as they are one of the reasons that Bob himself started the business. Known for his hospitality, Bob always told the people he came across to stop by the farm for a bite to eat if they were on the road. All the more reason to celebrate! 

Building on Bob’s road trip heritage and as a special touch this summer season, Bob Evans Restaurants has added new items to its menu to make sure everyone is “fueled up” along the way.

Seasonal fan-favorites, including Strawberry Supreme Pie and freshly baked Lemonade Bread are also back on the menu! 

 

In addition, Bob Evans has partnered with the Ohio Board of Tourism and Marathon and are asking consumers to share their favorite Ohio trip moment for a chance to win restaurant and gasoline gift cards along with other fun Ohio gear.
