No matter how many times we dine at Hobo's, it is always an excellent experience. There can be a 40 minute wait & once seated, the waitress will be there almost immediately taking your drink order. I honestly don't know how they do it. The restaurant will be at 100% capacity & once an order is placed, the food will... More

Hobo's has plenty of off-street parking in the rear of the establishment. The atmosphere is casual with a couple of televisions and many tables at the bar. The area, however, is not too noisy and we were immediately shown to a table. The seating is comfortable and the menu has a variety of selections, from steaks to Mexican fare. We... More

Great atmosphere. If you don't get there early you will wait, and wait. But, that is a good sign overall. You will enjoy your food. Their popularity has affected their prices though, much higher pricing than when they started.

Since I live 7/10 of a mile from Hobo's, I'm a frequent eater there. All their food is good, but my favorite dishes are the white chicken chilli , the chicken wrap and their wet burrito. I think the burrito is among the top two in town. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. Their entertainment is good, too. It's... More

We had a party of 6 and all but 1 of us received descent food. This is not the first time we have been to this establishment. We have tried this restaurant 3 times thinking may be we would get the good food on these reviews, that did not happen. Our fries tasted like they had soaked in oil for... More
