I grew up on Hobo, but I am not sure what is wrong with this one. They seem to have ample staff, but are always in disarray. The food takes much longer at this one, than any other Hobo I've been in. The past few times the bread was dry and not very good. The sandwiches have really lost their... More

I like going here when I'm hungry for a good sub or a baked potato with various toppings. They also have good cake slices or cookies for my sweet tooth.

My family and I just moved back to the Quad City area. I had to order a potato from Hungry Hobo. Of course the sandwiches are delectable as well but their is just something about that potato. Anyhow, I order a #29 substitute the chop cheddar for melted so I can have sour cream with. The meal came out hope... More

I had a great roast beef and cheddar here...just what you'd want a roast beef to be. Also, the loaded baked potato was great...baked, not steamed. The staff was very friendly.

Stopped in for lunch after dropping family off at the airport in Moline. Have not been to Hungry Hobo since it left Cedar Rapids. Just as I remember it, wonderful ham and Swiss sandwich and big cookie! I remember the baked potatoes were excellent too, but did not have one this time. Will definitely remember this again for next time!

Hungry Hobo has a very large selection of delicious sandwiches, prepared to your order. My favorite is the grilled steak, served plain, with waffle fries. Their breads/buns really finish off the sandwich with a delicious, tender taste. You surely can find something for anyone's taste.

Hobo #11 with onions and peppers is the best. Great deli meat with a vinegrette dressing. The taco tater rates #2 for me.

Nothing fancy but good sandwiches and waffle fries if you're not in the mood for typical fast food. Got take out while helping my brother-in-law move and it hit the spot.
