    For those oif you who dine at BOBE

    I live near the Famous Farm in Rio Grande Ohio and we go there occasionally to have supper.

    In recent months I have noticed they are using smaller plates and have cut their portions and have also had an increase in there prices.

    What I want to know is if you all have had similar experiences in any of the other locations?

    I have a friend in the restaurant biz and is very successful and he tells me you NEVER cut portions instead you raise prices!

    BTW I also have a relative that works for the sales division (He sells the sausage and other items to grocery stores and such) he tells me that the sales division is doing well!

      City Of Jackson just off the 32 exit.

    • Where is the new Bob Evans restaurant located in Jackson County Ohio?


    • Thanks for the update.

      You ever heard of a guy named Rhodes that was a big shot from Jackson. He put in some nice highways in your neck of the woods.

    • The newest Bob Evans Restaurant just opened in Jackson County Ohio And I had the pleasure of dinning there this morning.

      Service was excellent and I was very pleased for I figured that being new their would be glitches (they just opened yesterday)

      I had Blueberry Pancakes and Mrs. Dawgg had Biscuits and Gravy someone was always filling my coffee cup and the manager stopped by to ask us how our meal was which was great!

      Portion size was excellent and everything was served hot the Hash browns were even brown (pet peave of mine is if you call 'em hash browns then damn it I want 'em brown not warm white!)

      Seating in Jackson is up to 130 and they were fairly busy for late breakfast (8:45 AM)

      All in all I am pleased and I think my recent bad experiences with the "Farm" is just that, the "Farm" has the problems not the chain!

      Long on Bob

      Mad Dawgg

    • Someplace else....

    • Ok Are you a manager at the Farm in Rio Grande or someplace else?

    • Well, maybe it's an East Coast problem then. Smaller salads, crackers instead of rolls, less chicken in the wildfire chicken salad, for starters. And I never compared to Denny's of Waffle House - I sure as would not want to see them go down that route - what I said was that BOBE was the alternative to those venerable dining institutions!

    • I am a manager at Bob Evans....We still use the same plates and we use the same portions as ever.We have not been instructed to cut back on portions or order "smaller plates" if anything I think the company is cutting back on preaching food costs and gearing toward customer service.True menu prices did go up some and some of this was do to surveys that customers were willing to pay slightly higher prices for the same items......

    • Hillsdale, you're right on. "Ficoguy" is either a plant or a liar or both. For sure, he's a knucklehead. He's making this stuff up as he goes along. First, there has been no decrease in portion sizes based on my experience. And, yeah, some prices are higher on the East Coast, with good reason--real estate prices and labor costs. Ficoguy says "Strong Sell", continues to have terrible experiences at Bob's, compares it to Denny's in one Email and Waffle House in I smell a Cracker Barrell cracker in the breeze?

    • Only thing going on is looking for quality from what used to be a quality company! Maybe you got something else going on?
