We’ve long appreciated heading to Bob Evans for their consistently hearty and filling fare. It’s the place to find all sorts of comfort foods: stacks of hotcakes, country fried steak, buttery biscuits, giant burgers, tender pot roast, even a zesty taste of Dang Hot Chicken or seasonal Fresh Berries.

The nice thing about Bob Evans, too, is the bang-for-your-buck you get out of your meals. You’ll find delicious food at a budget-friendly price, with options to please everyone in the family. Enter: the new American Values menu. Each portion of Bob Evans’ menu – breakfast, lunch, and dinner – features a section titled American Values that features inexpensive-but-no-less-filling options that cover all your favorites.

When you’re scanning the menu, just look for the sections labeled American Values! On the breakfast menu you’ll find the Sunrise Savers, a collection of meals priced from $4.99-$7.99. You’ll see it incorporates everything from oatmeal to hotcakes, country biscuits to brioche French toast, sausage gravy to classic samplers.

My 11-year-old Owen, who was my dining companion on our most recent trip, was in a breakfast mood, so he ordered the Classic Breakfast: two eggs cooked your way, a choice of breakfast meat, and your selection of bread. He was a man after my own heart: over easy eggs, sausage links, and biscuits.

The American Values menu also includes the customizable Pick 2 Combos. Priced from $6.99 to $8.99, the combos let you mix and match pairs of Premium Salads, Slow-Simmered Soups, and Signature Sandwiches.

The possibilities are endless, with four different half-sized salads (I love a good cobb salad), a duo of half sandwiches like the All American BLT or Double Cheese Pot Roast Rip, plus a couple hearty soups like Chicken-N-Noodle or Cheddar Baked Potato.

I’m a big fan of pot roast, especially any dish that makes good use of the rich pan drippings, so I tried the Double Cheese Pot Roast Dip, which comes with a small cup of brown gravy. It was the perfect pairing with a comforting bowl of Chicken-N-Noodle soup that overflowed with noodles and diced chicken.

The chicken noodle soup is good for any mood or any time of year, and the pot roast sandwich brought back memories of French dip sandwiches my grandma used to make for Sunday dinners when I was growing up.

And last, but certainly not least, on the American Values menu are the Dinner Bell Plates priced affordably at $7.99. The menu features seven items that cover all the classic comfort foods: country-fried steak, turkey and dressing, chopped steak with mushrooms and onions, grilled or fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes, hickory-smoked ham steaks, and lemon pepper sole fillet with home fries. All of these meals are topped off with your choice of fresh-baked bread.

I’m never one to turn down fried chicken and mashed potatoes, so we tried the Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken Breast. The photogenic dish features a juicy piece of chicken, a giant scoop of mashed potatoes (with your choice of beef or chicken gravy), and a side of corn.

I mean: it’s comfort food on a plate, am I right?!

The same goes for the smaller portion of the Turkey & Dressing. Even though it’s dubbed the smaller size, it’s still plenty filling: a couple big scoops of stuffing topped with slices of turkey, a big dollop of mashed potatoes and gravy, and a side of cranberry sauce. I LOVE Thanksgiving dinner any time of year, so it warms my heart when I can find great turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing on the menu.

It’s nice to know you’ve always got a budget-friendly option to feed your entire group and leave them stuffed!

You’ll find the American Values items on Bob Evans’ menu every day!
