We ate a great quick meal at Hobby. The waitress was aware of the food prep times and delivered. The meal was colorful and tasty. They use a lot of ice in drinks, so beware of a potential brain freeze!

Good drinks, must try the combo fajitas, enough to feed 2 or 3 people. Great atmosphere and good service. The salsa could use a little more spice.
