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

For 40 years Hungry Hobo has been serving quality sandwiches, soups, cakes, cookies and baked potatoes. Great variety to choose from.

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.

'buff said. This place doesn't really need another review. Everyone knows it's great. Get the #11 King with EOP (everything, onions, peppers). Their baked potatoes and soup are good too.

Number 11 is my favorite. Basically a combo with all the meats and cheeses. Onions and peppers extra. Generous portion of carrot cake too. Loaded baked potatoes good on a cold day
