As the home of America’s Farm Fresh, Bob Evans Restaurants knows when fruits and vegetables are in peak season and taste their best—that’s why it is introducing its new Fresh Berry dishes just in time for National Strawberry Month in May. Perfect for spring and summer, the new strawberry dishes will sweeten up mealtime and satisfy guests’ berry cravings all season long. The new Fresh Berry dishes reimagine Bob Evans’ classics, like their farm-fresh breakfasts and salads, by pairing them with vine-ripened, hand-picked strawberries that are full of freshness and flavor.

Bob Evans’ fresh strawberries are grown on U.S. family farms and are hand-picked at peak ripeness. Once they are delivered to each restaurant, the vine-ripened strawberries are de-stemmed by hand, then freshly-sliced for each order in Bob Evans’ farmhouse kitchens. The new Fresh Berry dishes will satisfy any craving, whether you want to indulge your sweet tooth with a decadent breakfast or enjoy a refreshing salad.

“True to our founder’s farming roots and innovative spirit, we always look for opportunities to refresh our menus each season and reimagine the farm-fresh tastes guests love,” says Saed Mohseni, chief executive officer for Bob Evans Restaurants. “As part of our commitment to America’s Farm Fresh, we’re proud to partner with U.S. family farmers to bring the freshest and highest quality ingredients to our guests, including these hand-picked, vine-ripened strawberries.”

“Spring is a time for renewal, and by sweetening up our farm-fresh classics with juicy, ripe strawberries, we’re giving our guests a new way to enjoy their favorites,” adds Bob Holtcamp, chief marketing officer for Bob Evans Restaurants. “As guests gather around the table with their loved ones again, we hope our new Fresh Berry dishes make mealtime simple and provide options everyone in the family can enjoy together.”

Guests can now order Bob Evans’ new Fresh Berry dishes starting at $5.99 for breakfast, lunch or dinner at all Bob Evans locations. Bob Evans is also bringing back some classic dishes with a fresh twist for spring. The seasonal entrées available through August include:
