Ahhhh I miss this place in Cedar Rapids!

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... read more

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

I just spent a week in Moline, Illinois, and like always, we had a party with Hungry Hobo sandwiches. I'm sorry...I know my whole family who lives in Moline thinks this is the best sub sandwich ever...I think it is nothing but average.

I "transplanted" my husband from the Quad Cities to central Illinois and he was very disappointed that there were only Subways down here and no Hungry Hobos. He cut his teeth on Hungry Hobos and no Subways, with their skimpy portions of meat, can compare. Sure, it's just a sandwich shop with a limited area for dining in, but their... More

I would give this a five because it have some really fresh food and that is critical. I had chips and tuna sandwich which is really fresh and nice.
