It was close to our Motel. It was right down by the river. There was a great view from the sub-shop. We had to drive through road construction to get to it. The sandwiches were so-so, the potato salad was bland, but the cakes were delicious.

Nice little restaurant serving burgers, baked potatoes and salads. For a quick meal this bis hard to beat in Le Claire, over looks the Mississippi river so great views too, all at a reasonable price. Will go again if in the area.

First time eating here, im not disappointed. Food was good, just wish they had a few more selections but you cant be too picky, it is a sub shop! But i left happy, completely addicted to the waffle fries. only tip: you could probably drain more grease off the fries before serving first.

First let me say that I love Hungry Hobo subs. The LeClaire location was clean and the servers were quick and pleasant. But, yesterday I bit into the worst King 11 I have ever received from any Hungry Hobo. The bread was hard, the meat had a bad taste and I made the mistake of choking it down. I still... More

Menu choices were many but food was cold, and lacked flavor. View from the restaurant was of the Mississippi River and very nice. We would not return here to eat even though we always make Le Claire our overnight stay when we travel in the area.

Wow, I have been to several Hungry Hobos in the QC, but this one really needs help. Men's room was filthy. For a slow night the staff should have considered taking time to wipe down the tables instead of standing around chatting. Not very helpful, rude, and should try a smile.

.It's never a good thing when you walk into a sandwich shop and they don't know what a turkey club is.

The food was great. We tried the new mobile app. For the first time and ordered while en route. When we got there the food was not ready, they just got the order. Other than the technology glitch they got the food made up real quick for us. Keep up the good work and food!

I know people who go nuts for Hungry Hobo, but I wasn't impressed. The prices seemed high for a sub shop, and the sandwich wasn't especially flavorful.
