    Is Bob Evans a Midwest thing? Howard acted like he never heard of it...and Robin thought it was a convenience store chain. At least she knew it was a famous sausage brand (go figure).

    I'm a life long West Coaster and the only Bob Evans I know of is the old time douchebag Hollywood producer.

    They're all over the Midwest. I'm in Michigan. I assumed they would be just as popular on the east coast (NY, NJ).

    I live in Florida but I never heard of or saw a bob Evans.....maybe it's a central Florida/Midwest thing....so I can't really be critical of Howard for his "ignorance" of the chain.

    I went there once when I was young on trip to Florida. They were pushing biscuits and gravy as their signature dish. I still remember it after all these years because it was so bad.

    Yup. That's what I thought as well. And here he is, and believe it or not, its not a wax statue. He produced Chinatown and ran Paramount in the 70's.

    I always recommend the Evans documentary "The Kid Stays in the Picture" to anyone interested in showbiz of that era. He is such a quintessential jackass that the movie seems like a "Spinal Tap" brand of satire.

    We got a couple of um in southwest Florida but the food there sucks. I'd rather eat at Mel's Diner.

    There's one in South Jersey. Near Cherry Hill I think. God knows how it stays in business though. I ate there once and it sucked. You don't see them very often though

    Burger King has better quality food than Bob Evans and costs about 60% less

    Ate there once in Maryland a year ago. The mac & cheese was just like some off brand from a box.
