Oh no! That is so sad! Been going there for 20+ years. Wishing them well on their new endeavor.

No!! We moved here last year, and Hobees is right across the street. It became our go-to place quickly and had become a symbol of calmness and stability for our hearts in an otherwise stressful time. Reading this news feels like we are going to lose a close friend. So sad!

Two Mountain View Hobees, on El Camino and one on Central Exprwy. I assume the ECR one but would like to know for sure which one.

Jeff, it's the one on Central Expressway & Rengstorff. That's the only one in MV.
There's one on ECR near Arastradero that's in PA.

The original Hobee's is literally accessible from my back yard. We and our neighbors slip out the back gate to Hobee's several times each week. Wishing them well in San Jose, and hoping a new Mountain View location crops up in a year or two!

@YourNeighbor (I guess you are;) I just ate there today and saw someone open a gate in the fence next door and walk through! Maybe it was you?

@Neighbor,
You got it! Met a friend for last visit to Hobee's original site!
