First off, I dine at hungry hobo often. The experience I had today will make it so I wont visit again. I put in a simple order for carry out and while waiting for my food I listened to the entire staff complain about customers audibly enough for me and any other customers there to hear it. And upon arriving... More

I love their sandwiches, cheesy fries, and their taco salads. They had salads, soups, and sandwiches. All of which are delicious.

I used to love this place but last time I went I was given a veggie sandwich that was 80% bread with the filling hardly reaching half way to the edge. My husband had a grilled sandwich and was also disappointed. Air conditioning is freezing as always. Waffle fries are still good.

Here is what we liked and did not like. Liked - clean place and we'll kept - Lots of sandwich choices - reasonable prices - next to whitey's ice cream shop - no pictures of the sandwiches on menu - they bring the food to your table as it is ready Disliked - bread was too soft and squishy -...

Visited this location on a Thursday night (July 23rd) about 5 minutes before closing with my family of 5. The girls working here that evening were more than nice. Typically, when you walk into a place that close to 9 pm when they are shutting down, you get a lot of dirty looks and poor service. Not here, they told... More

I normally go to the East Moline location but this time I was staying with my sister in Rock Island and this one was around the corner. Very clean inside. Order taker and cashier was quick and efficient with a pleasant smile. I ordered the K#6: EOP-T with cheddar fries as I always do. Great tasting sandwich and fries cooked... More

Great soft bread. I recommend the Taco Potatoe & Taco Salad (King size). If you love sour cream make sure you get some extra! Use the Taco sauce that you can ask for at this fast food eatery. The waffle fries are just as amazingling filling. Make sure you get the cheese dip (comes on the side). Great filler! Come... More

Awful experiences, yes plural! Wrong sandwiches, no fries, wrong stuff on the sandwiches. Its Hungry Hobo not rocket science, do what you get paid for & stop running your mouth & being rude to customers.
