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

Hob Nob's is the old school type drive in but it has covered seating. Deep fried food so it is fast and hot. I had a plain burger, comes with lettuce and tomato, along with onion rings. Convenient location right on 301. Place is nice and clean though and service is very good. Cash, Visa and MC only.

The HOB NOB is the very first meal we enjoy when we return to SRQ for the winter season. For the past 50+ years this drive-in is a favorite of the locals. Burgers and baskets are wonderful and a great value. The meal is not complete unless you breathe in whiffs of diesel fuel as trucks are idling at the... More

Get off the beaten path and grab a meal, or just an amazing chocolate shake, at this old fashioned eat in/drive in. I found it by chance, but it was the perfect place to order a treat after a hot day on the beach. The staff seemed to know everyone by name, and all kinds of folks came through in... More

I have heard how good the food was. And I would agree. Very good burgers. But it is located at a very busy intersection. There were times we could hardly hear each other talk. And it was quite breezy and you eat outside. We had to hold onto things so they wouldn't blow away. I was glad I went once.... More

I don't get the attraction. This place has greasy food, expensive beer and is in a crappy part of town. The road noise is loud, atmosphere is a busy road. It is old school greasy burgers fries and onion rings.
