Love the Hob Nob. It's been there forever and everyone goes there for awesome burgers, shakes and onion rings. A blast from the past and a don't miss destination when in Sarasota. Old Florida at it's best!

The best hamburgers and french fries I've ever had! Always busy especially during snow bird season. However, are lacking in the alcohol department. I like red wine or margaritas. Aside from that it's a great place to sit and enjoy good old american food!

Hob Nob (ex-drive in) restaurant does a top notch job of what they have done for 50 years - serving great burgers, beer, fries, and milkshakes in a laid-back friendly atmosphere. All the waitresses make you feel welcome and the cooks really know what they're doing. We indulge whenever we are in the area.

A hoot. Outdoor bar and tables. Real good food, reasonable enough and the off beat setting adds fun to the meal. This is not white table cloth dining. The summer heat can be too hot because you are sitting outside. Very popular with the locals obviously. This is very casual place, but the biggest plus is the super laid back... More

First ate here when i was about 3 years old. Grew up right down the street. Used to love their cheeseburgers & draft rootbeer. But haven't been back since the 1980's.
