A tale of one city, two restaurants. More often than not, people choose Bob Evans over a great local place with character. Why, oh why?! Bob Evans arranges the food on your plate according to a diagram hanging on the wall! Also, ugh at this quote:
"Going out to eat is risky," said Steve Govey, the Bob Evans regional manager for the Ohio Valley. "You never know what you're going to get. But at Bob Evans, that's not true. Our strategy is being completely predictable, something people know they can count on."

This must be why one of the Bob Evans patrons said he would vote for George Bush because it was "just too dangerous to change stride now. It's best to leave well enough alone."

Also, why are American diets so faddish? Why will Americans drop carbs at the drop of a hat?

And, some regional dishes reconsidered by six writers from across the U.S.

Finally, food on the campaign trail, or eating burgers in public and Indian in private.
