They seem to have simple philosophy. Fresh is is best and kindness is king. We had a Blackened mahi-mahi quesadilla, Key Lime chicken, and Shrimp Hobo. All 3 were delicious. The staff was kind and courteous and definitely service oriented. The atmosphere was relaxing. They...offer inside and outside dining on the deck. Sorry no pics but, was more interested in eating and conversation.More

We tried Hobo’s last night with friends. We all thorough enjoyed our meals, and declared it the best meal we had on vacation. Our server, Miriam, was awesome as well. If in Key Largo, and you want a great meal, definitely check out Hobo’s.

We had the hognose snapper and the gator appetizer. Both were amazing. And yes, the gator tasted like chicken.

We really enjoyed our meal. The bruschetta appetizer was so good so much flavor. And both my husband and my meals were great. I had a glass of key lime cider and it was great

We dropped by for appetizers and dessert. Wait staff fast, friendly, and helpful. Comfortable atmosphere. Food was good, key lime pie was ok if you don’t mind fake whipped topping.

My husband and I were traveling to Key West and broke our journey in Key Largo for lunch. Found Hobo’s, checked out the menu and decided to give it a try. It didn’t disappoint in any respect! Nothing fancy, just a nice, clean, family-type cafe....My husband ordered the crab cake sandwich with waffle fries, I had the Key Lime fish sandwich with coleslaw. We had planned on eating ‘light’, but my gosh! When our meals arrived the portions were much bigger than expected. We could have easily split either meal and been more than satisfied. My husband’s crab cake was bigger than the bun by a good half inch and there were lots of fries. I had 2 good sized mahi-mahi fillets (fresh caught that morning) that spilled off the bun along with tomato, lettuce, onions and a pickle as well as a generous helping of slaw. This was the best fish sandwich I have EVER had! My husband was very pleased with his crab as well. I highly recommend Hobo’s and hope to return!More

To be honest when I dined there I didn’t look to see if they had other vegan offerings besides salad. Give them a call
