Interesting idea. Men's Club moves it up a notch or two by having naked women instead of college girls in shorts yet serves one of the best buffets on the planet. I would pay double what they charge for the food. They expect alcohol sales and lap dance business to make up for the low price of the food. For 80% of the patrons this works but not for me.

But this is a description of the dinner menu...same idea however.

So they have to stoop to showing half naked girls to get anyone to eat their food. It's no wonder, the wings are horrible. A friend gave me a taste and that was just gross. I've not been in the place and won't ever step foot in one for personal reasons. And dh won't go cause he likes being married.

I once ate at the Hooters near Underground Atlanta (might have even been IN UA, but it was a while ago). I had okay wings and had fun speculating out loud which waitresses had fake boobs, much to my then-boyfriend's embarrassment.

My wife reminded me that the preacher of a Baptist church in Charlotte was fired for eating lunch at Hooters. He went w/ a group of preachers from many different faiths, some kind of convention, but he was the only one fired. The Presbyterian preacher choose the place and simply commented that the Baptists needed to consider more important things in life.

Hooters serves food???

"Hey, honey, no really, they have great food and stuff. We should really try it."

Last time I drove through my home town I noticed that the (long-gone) Lums was converted to a Hooters. I guess there's some logical progression there (like from beer and dogs to boobs and dogs) but it made me kind of sad.

SOS is good slop! It's like liver. You gotta do it right. Start by draining all the fat off the beef and it's downhill from there!

Ate at a Hooters in downtown Milwaukee after a Cubs Brewers game. Had more fun telling all the Brewer fans how I got to Miller Park (for the record, I walked) than Hooters. Food wasn't bad, but $30 and I was alone? Never again!

Many countries emulate the United States, especially their younger generations. Satellite television has brought American clothing, music, cars, food, and life styles to every corner of the world. The more they see, the more they want. Unfortunately, the relocation of US manufacturing to China has hurt the American work force.

When I worked for my local Community College, I made friends with a Chinese student, we had a lot in our ESL program who came via Fermi Lab and some of our other research facilities. She told me that American "lore" is so very popular in China that many young (20 somethings) are getting operations to make themselves taller in order to emulate Americans more. Our movie are huge there, gracious..... a world where Tom Cruise is a god! Shutter! The Hooters news clip I saw yesterday was awful, bad English version of the hoky poky done by young Chinese women who had no figures what so ever!

I am sure it will do as least as well as their airline:

Or, their first hotel, in Lakeland, FL.:
http://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/stories/2002/02/11/story1.html

I tried to find a review on TripAdvisor, but NO ONE has written one. I have driven past there on more than one occasion, and I would never stay there, but I tend to be pretty picky about my hotel choices.


I went to Vegas at the end of April w/ a couple of friends to help one of them celebrate their 40th b-day. We stayed at Hooters for 3 nights (WED-FRI), before taking the red-eye home to Boston late SAT night.

Quite honestly, it was a great place to stay. (It is the old "San Remo" casino, next to the Tropicana and across the street from the MGM). For a hotel room in Vegas, I'm mostly interested in the sheets, towels & room being clean, the A.C. in working order, and the water pressure enough to shower. It vastly exceeded those minimal requirements.

The casino is small, but very homey. We had the same dealers, the same bartenders, the same waitresses. All on a first-name basis after our 3-days. The pool area is nice, but packed on the weekend. Several times, as my friends and I were out & about in some of the larger casinos, we would nod to each other in disapproval and merely say that it was time to go "home" - back to Hooters.

In addtion to all the "guys" staying there and/or gambling there, there were also a lot of couples, some older, and some families all staying there. The Hooter girls were almost an afterthought. Almost!

Of course, there's a Hooter's restaurant, and for lunch it wasn't bad. I'm not a big fan of their naked wings, and absolutely despise any breaded wing, but the burgers, fries & such were perfectly alright for lunch.

The small 24-hour cafe had a pretty good breakfast buffet (from what I can remember of it!), with the most scrumptious bacon I've ever had - thick cut, seasoned w/ a spicy brown sugar/maple coating. I probably had 2 lbs. of it that morning.

I found out that there was absolutely nothing wrong w/ sitting at the casino bar at 9am, nursing $5 in the video blackjack machine, and being served one free bloody mary after another by a very attractive bartender. There are worse things to do in Vegas on a Friday morning.

My wife is a HUGE Hooter's fan, so from time to time in order to accumulate brownie points, I take the family there. I think the wings are fair (I get them plain - no sauce) for what they are, and she gets them with the hottest sauce they have. It's a win win thing for us. I get brownie points and a (relatively) decent meal, my wife gets her fixation satiated, and we're in and out pretty damn fast.

Marriage can be a great thing sometimes. You, the husband, RECEIVE brownie points for taking your WIFE to Hooters. I need me a wife like that!

I guess I would qualify as a "Huge Hooters Fan". No I have never been into a Hooters Business establishment. It is true that I have no plans ever to enter a Hooter's Establishment in the future.

But I AM a Huge Hooter's Fan.

I used to take the young Japanese temps (we got them for one year to train before they rotated back) to Hooters. I would excuse myself and tell our waitress it was the young guys birthday. The entire waitress staff will then come to the table, surround the "birthday boy", and sing some silly song. TOO much fun for a lunch.

Tara,

Now that is funny!! But those aren't HUGE Hooters!!

Here is my one contact with Hooter's while living in the High Desert of SoCal. She was LARGE, at least 30 inches tall ! Would you call this "Desert Hooter's?"

GAWD, we have a wonderful Hooters here in Towson, Maryland.

I go there OFTEN (whenever my wife is out of town on business) to get wings.

I HATE chicken wings . . . they are "food" fit only for the plebes (and yuppies with SUVs).

NOT THE POINT! I go to Hooters to get chicken wings . . . YEAH RIGHT!

Darn, do I hear that bulldozer running again?

I thought I had the keys in my pocket!
