I fully agree about the carpet! That is why we have done some remodeling since Aug. 2005. We now have new carpet, new entrance, and effective Jan. 1, 2007 we are a smoke free restaurant. The menus are based on the original Hobo Joe Coffee Shop, as the owner Dale Randles, Sr. was a very big part of the original 1965 Hobo Joe business, and the Humpty Dumpty business that followed. Most of the menu is still based on the original. Many people come to Hobo Joe's to reminisce about the old days, and see one of the original statues, inside the restaurant, along with other memorabilia that my husband and I have had since 1965. The omelette's are still made the french way, and are absolutely wonderful. Our burgers are cooked to order, just the way you like them. Our servers are probably, I feel for sure, the best in Cottonwood. They are friendly, attentive, and professional. We started the business in 1993, and have never looked back! We have seen many restaurants come and go, but we are still here, and plan to keep going. The "Where Friends Meet Friends", means that most of our customers have actually made new friends at our restaurant, and keep their friendship outside of the restaurant. We are a very family oriented restaurant, because we are all family--our employees and customers.
