Good choice !!

Even though it is a little hard to find unless you know it is there it is a good choice for a reasonably priced meal. You have to self order and you have several choices of hot or cold sandwiches or a baked potato. Our service was prompt and our food was good. As a plus you have an excellent... read more

Although most visitors were choosing sandwiches we choose soup and chili topped backed potato. The soup was very good and the view of the Mississippi River was worthy of a high end restaurant.

With not much else open on a snowy night we ate at the Hungry Hobo. The king sized sandwich was huge and very good, the bread was great (fresh) .... Also had the chili which was a pleasant surprise as to how good it was. I would eat here again

While staying at a local hotel, we needed to find a place to eat for supper. I had taco salad, and my wife had a bread bowl soup. Both were good. As vegetarians, we didn't have much choice. Even though we didn't order this, I would eat a sub sandwich if I ever returned here.

Had the taco potato. Can't really recommend it. The food here is average because it is inexpensive. The ingredients such as "cheese" are pretty down market--it's really cheese sauce rather than real cheese. Think "processed cheese food" as in Velveeta-type products. The place is clean and the staff is friendly without being particularly helpful. I would certainly return because I... More

I've been going here for years, great place to get a quick lunch. So much better than Subway, I think its the bread. We don't have them where I live now so its always a stop when I'm home.

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.
