Pizza is a very personal food. People like it many different ways, so I hesitate to recommend pizza. That said, I enjoyed the pizza served here. We went with a group of 14 to The Handsome Hobo. It is a pizzeria and Italian Restaurant. We were seated promptly and had an excellent server, Michael. His demeanor was so pleasant and... More

The Chicago (deep dish style) pizza was excellent and so was the New York (meaning normal hand-tossed crust pizza). Our family really enjoyed just about everything we had at this place. The price was more than expected being that we were in Muskegon and not Chicago or even Detroit-area where better Pizza places do cost 2 times a standard bearer... More

I live in the USA since 1987 and that is the best pizza I ever had by far. As good as an European pizza. Good service too. They have a local brewed beer that is delicious. I am from Vegas visiting family.

We ordered from The Handsome Hobo because they would deliver to the Duck Creek RV resort and we were starving after a long day at Michigan's Adventures. The pizza was to die for and they delivered well within the 40 minutes they quoted which was awesome since it was about a 10 minute drive to the rv park. We were... More

Took the family to Hobo's for pizza. They have a kids menu with "build your own" pizza or pasta. The pizza was pretty good - many choices for specialty pizzas. The sauce was mild and the crust was not particularly memorable. The service was friendly and fast (too fast actually). Bread sticks were good. House salad was like a Greek... More

We ordered a couple of pizzas for carryout - one regular and one deep dish. they were both really good, but I have to say, the deep dish was outstanding and as good as any I've had in the city. The atmosphere is fun, and the noise on the weekends is high, but it adds to the festivity of going... More

This is a cozy restaurant and Hoby Thrasher got the atmosphere right again with this restaurant. The food is pricy, as it is in all his restaurants, but of course tastes good too. It's just not a place we go all the time because it's kind of expensive. I love the gas fire "pit" in the middle of a bar... More

LOVED the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. I would highly recommend this to anyone! Flavorful and delicious. I will be ordering it again! I've also found a great love for their Itailian Sodas. Order all flavors except for Peach, it's a great combo of flavors and you won't be dissapointed. I wasn't as impressed with my pizza this time around- but... More

We tried this restaurant because of a Groupon and could not have been more pleasantly surprised. we had heard it was quite noisy but just the opposite was true, perhaps because it was a Thur. night. Our waitress did an excellent job as did the mgr. who came by to check on things. We had the Bang Bang shrimp for... More
