If you're OK with eating classic diner food outside next to a very busy intersection, then do check out the Hob Nob. We got served our buger, hot dog and crinkle cut fries within minutes of ordering and then were offered free refills. The food was fresh and well presented with care given to the humble burger and fries even... More

We went here for dinner after visiting The Ringling's Art Museum. My brother who lives in Sarasota had been looking for it. It's a 50 style dinner that serves burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and breakfast. I had the Pattie melt, my husband had the Hob Nob Special, and my brother had the regular hamburger. Everything was very good. My husband... More

This place is too cute and rustic! We are food snobs all the way but love it here! Open air dining right at a busy down town intersection. The cheeseburgers are griddle fried and super tasty. Paired with fries, Cole slaw and a mm milk shake and you are instantly transformed to the 1950's! It's too cute and tasty to... More

1950's retro diner,cute on the highway with very bland food.Many better choices in the Sarasota area..We were in the area before leaving for the nearby airport and decided to stop.Burger and greasy fries but a very good shake.Nice from the outside,but a killer inside.

I've only eaten here a couple of times and the last time was many years ago. I remember really liking it then, but I went there today and ordered a regular burger and fries and I have to say that I was not impressed. The burger was larger than I remembered that it was before, but less flavorful. And, I... More

I was a little concerned about out waitress ... as she was drenched in sweat and looked a little strung out. Haven't been in a few years and stopped in during our recent vacation. Still good food...but watching your waitress take out the garbage and come back and bring your food without washing her hands.. a little off putting.

A diner on a busy street-you will hear traffic noise, expect greasy food,shakes and or beer and wine. I ordered Coconut Shrimp but was served regular Shrimp. The server gladly recognized the cooks error and the Coconut Shrimp was brought out in no time at all. Our server was pleasant and very efficient. There were ashtrays on most tables, having... More
