The amount of fat and butter will sit with you all night. I had no car and walked from the nearby hotel to have dinner twice here, because it was the only option that wasn't fast food or a buffet place. First night it was kind of scary with the guy from the kitchen who kept coming out to the front wearing a ball cap backwards looking like a bubba from "Deliverance". Had the 3 course dinner with hearty beef vegetable soup -- it was tasty; the slow-roasted pot roast with mashed potatoes, carrots and raw onion slices. Heavy load of mashed, onions were bitter because they weren't sauteed first. The gravy was tasty. The second night I had the chicken-fried steak with mashed and green beans. I asked for an additional side of onion petals. Server misinterpreted and substituted the onion petals for the green beans. I let it go. The price is right, but the atmosphere and interior ceiling isn't loved by anyone and the focus seems to be loading up on mashed potatoes. Bubba must've had the night off.

Bob Evans chain used to be our favorite. This location is clean and very well kept, but the food was a bit overpriced for the serving sizes. The blueberry crepes had to go back since they were rubbery and smothered in a two sweet blueberry sauce. We found that the Cracker Barrel just down the road was a much better bargain. BE still makes great chili though!!

Great staff. Food was a little undercooked - not what I normally expect from this chain. Biggest issue is that it is long past time to replace the furniture. Glad I was wearing pants otherwise the cracked pleather booth seating would have been even more uncomfortable than it was.

After a long day on the road we decided to get our meal to go to take back to the Hilton Garden Inn just up the road. The restaurant was very welcoming and would also make for a pleasant dining experience.

The order was well packaged and the food was very hot. You can't beat the biscuits and gravy and the Sunshine Skillet was every bit as good. The tomato basil and cheddar baked potato soups were hot and very tasty.

Banana bread can be substituted for the biscuit on any of the meals and it is always fresh and delicious.

Well worth your time for any meal.

On our way to Smith Mountain Lake during the summer season we always stop at Bob Evans in Lynchburg, VA. This location is just off Rt. 460 near Liberty University. (On a side note the grounds are manicured to the max and never are in need on care.) The restaurant is very clean and you are greeted with a smile and seated quickly. The staff is on the ball. They are quick and keep an eye on you and even offer you a drink to go at the end of your meal (sometimes you need to ask). The menu has a lot of sections but easy to make a selection without confusion. Seniors even get their own section. Food is well prepared, fresh and lots of flavor. The season will dictate if you get banana bread or pumpkin bread or you can select rolls or biscuits. I would recommend the pumpkin bread in the fall! you can also buy a loaf to take home. I like the salads and the grilled chicken is very good also. Turkey and dressing is also great with real turkey not pressed. Coffee and ice tea are excellent. Breakfast is hot when you get it and the eggs are prepared perfect any way you want them. Grits are not instant and prepared well. In fact, nothing is instant in this place. Have not tried the desserts but other people say they are great and you can buy whole pies (Strawberry, pumpkin etc.) to go. You can also buy whole dinners for $20.00 (dinner for 4) and can call ahead for pickup. Everything is good and the prices are great! Will go again and again. Highly recommend! Good for singles, couples, families, friends and businesses.
