    in the middle of nowhere (buckeye, az) stands "hobo joe"...just to give you a sense of how big this bum is...check out the haybales and dumpster to his lower right.

    to make it even weirder, he's on the property of a nasty, dumpy looking slaughterhouse/rendering shack...you can see animal bones/skulls on the "roof" of the corral.

    Thanks

    I always wondered what happened to him. Hadn't seen him since his restaurants closed.

    Thank you...the whole thing was so surreal it had to be documented!

    No. There was a Hobo Joe's restaurant in Mesa, and other cities in AZ. The statue you found used to stand in front of it. I believe the Mesa store was near University and Stapley. Could be wrong. . . memory is not what it used to be. . .
