Did you know there's an actual Bob Evans Farm?

I had no idea - and even less so that it's not all that far way.

Located in Rio Grande, Ohio, the farm features historic buildings, a windmill, and, of course, a restaurant.

"Bob Evans, founder of our company, lived on the Bob Evans Farm in southeastern Ohio for nearly 20 years. He and his wife, Jewell, raised their six children in the large brick farmhouse known as the Homestead. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Homestead was once a stagecoach stop and an inn. Later, the Evans family opened The Sausage Shop in their front yard, which later became the first Bob Evans restaurant, still open today. The spirit of hospitality is deeply embedded in our company's history. Today, the Homestead serves as a company museum and historical center."

Some areas of the farm are closed still due to COVID-19, but they do have a festival here which is coming up soon!

While driving through the area, I just wanted to check out the original Bob Evans. And really, it's like any other Bob Evans, but maybe on a more scenic landscape.

The menu was the same - but that doesn't mean it was bad! I had a turkey dinner, which was a treat. It was like a mini Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, carrots, mashed potatoes and rolls. I was just missing the pumpkin pie. Decent homestyle food overall.
