The Spicuzza's have refocused the Hob Nob's menu back to the basics - burgers and hot dogs, the classics that make the drive-in what it is. The hand-made milkshakes, floats and ice cream cones have been brought back as well. Salads and other health foods were added to round out the menu. There are daily specials featuring the local foods and markets The Hob Nob's casual and friendly atmosphere is what makes it different as a Sarasota eating establishment. Their happy employees make happy customers that come from all walks of life. Working men and women can sit by the rich and famous to get a good meal at a moderate price. The Hob Nob draws a diverse mix of locals and visitors that makes it a favorite of all ages and walks of life
great open air place to eat. as any place thats been around for awhile. the tall blond mgr walks around like she is the mighty queen and to good to mingel with quests. the asst mgr. is always so uptight. you can feel her stress by the way she address employees in certain situations. and she is real quick to tell you how many years shes been there. Well i wouldn't want to tell the world that i can't do any better for myself.I ASK MYSELF? IS IT 1 YEAR EXPRIENCE 9 TIMES???? And they hire girls from the drug rehab center right up the steert. I've heard several times asst. mgr complain about wait staff. One older gentelmen said it's a self made problem.I do agree!!!! remember all this while i've been sitting there as a customer.
I live here in Sarasota and I have been going to Hob Nob since I was a kid and have taken my kids there also. It' s a place that gives you memories. My dad use to take me there and it was some of the best nights that we as a family spent together. You must try it out and believe me you will come back and tell others about this place.
Great place to share with friends! By car or by motorcycle! Went with Haps Gulf Coast Riders one time and another with our Motormaids. Neat old time atmosphere of enjoying the outdoors while watching the traffic go by. Their Hob Nob Burger is a double patty with all the fixins - super. And I couldn't even finish my Chef's Salad.
We went to The HOB NOB restaurant on July 14th. It is a place you must try. They have been in business 50 years. The food was good. The service was a bit slow even though the place was basically empty. I recommend it because it is always nice to try local restaurants anywhere you travel. Stay away from the usual Dennys or Perkins; you can go anywhere for those places. The waitresses have been there quite a while as well. They were friendly and accommodating. Try it... you'll like it !!!
Absolute best of the last open air burger places ! Outdoor tables, old chrome stools to sit on at the bar, a knock out burger and a hot dog like hot dogs should be. Plus a wide range of beers. Red Stripe included. Don't miss this place. It may be taken in by the ways of the world soon. Enjoy the fun.
Tasteless burger. Okay fries and onion rings. They charge too much extra for fries/onion rings and a condiment size serving of cole slaw. 2 Diet Pepsi, 1 cheese burger basket, 1 hamburger basket, came to almost $18.00. Burger King and McDonald's burgers taste better. First and last time for us.
You would NEVER think about stopping by there when driving by but lemme tell ya, they have the best food in Sarasota !!!!! There tuna melt is to die for as well as there blackened grouper sandwich!!!! The only problem is they only take cash. I would eat there A LOT more if they accepted Visa/Mastercard/Debit cards. I never carry cash. I have been there when I do have cash (about 10 times) and ALWAYS had great food !!!
