Eat at Bob's

I've been a big fan of Bob Evans. No matter what time of day I go, I can find something on the menu I enjoy. But I especially love the Wildfire Chicken Salad. The dinner is stacked with lettuce, corn, grape tomatoes, tortilla strips, cheddar cheese and chicken strips coated in barbecue sauce, with the restaurant's special Wildfire Ranch dressing on the side. Several of us at The NH frequently get this when we order out, and if you've had it, you know why. If you haven't had it, I would definitely recommend trying it.

And, after a recent, incredibly positive experience, I would recommend you order it from the Bob Evans in Willoughby (Interstate 90 and state Route 91).

I was heading to my boyfriend's for our regular mid-week TV night. I had a while to drive because I was across town, so I asked him to call and order me a dinner-size Wildfire Chicken Salad with rolls on the side -- my usual order.

When I got to the restaurant to pick the meal up, the woman helping me was putting an extra bread container into my bag. She smiled at me and said, "This is for your friend." I was a little puzzled because my boyfriend had said he didn't want anything, and I must have looked it because she asked, "Are you going to see him?" I said yes, hesitating, but she smiled and said, "This is for him." She handed me the carry-out bag and receipt, and I saw that I was not being charged for the extra goody she had given me.

When I got to my boyfriend's place, the first thing he said to me was, "DID YOU KNOW THEY HAVE CHERRY BREAD?" He said when he placed the order, the woman listed all the types of bread they had, and he asked her about the cherry bread and remarked how good it sounded, but told her I had wanted rolls.

And what was in that bonus container I walked out of the restaurant with? Two slices of cherry bread.

I really appreciate this customer service. The server had no reason to give me an extra serving of bread. Because she did, you can bet I will be patronizing the Willoughby location and encouraging my friends to do the same.
