Bob Evans fries in soybean oil. That eliminates a lot of food on the menu.
I salute Bob Evans in the fact that they tell you up front that they use Soybean Oil for grilling and frying. In some restaurants, it feels like it takes an act of congress to find out what they fry in. Even worse, restaurants state that foods are soy free even though they are fried in soybean oil. In their minds since “soybean oil is technically not an allergen” they don’t feel that they have to list that all of their food is full of soybean oil. So “Thank You!” Bob Evans for giving us accurate information.
*Oil used for grilling & deep frying consists of soybeans. Although soybean oil is technically not an allergen, due to varying sensitivities, Bob Evans has chosen to include items that are cooked in and/or contain soybean oil.
What we order:
Kid’s meal Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and steamed broccoli. It always amazes me that for non-health-food that Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is, that it has absolutely no soy. Fruit and Yogurt plate, scrambled eggs and sausage. Hungry kids, huh?
Other things we could order:
- Scrambled or Hard cooked (I assume fried over hard) Eggs — maybe hard boiled, have to find out.
- Fruit & Yogurt
- Sausage Breakfast Patty
- Plain Baked Potato

I'm trying to track allergen information for every restaurant that we eat at. With my son's soy allergy, each time we eat at a restaurant, it can take up to 30 minutes to figure out what he can eat. Especially since most restaurants don't accurately represent their usage of soy.
We're tracking what soy free (including soybean oil free) foods our son can eat at all restaurants we go to. If you've got a soy allergy in your family and have any information you can share, please contact us.
