Hooters sucks

Tonight was the first time I've been to a Hooters restaurant. Ever. I was strong-armed into going with a group of other hockey dads. And let me just say that it surpassed all expectations I had.

Here's why it sucks:

- In Nashua, they let you smoke in the Hooters. Our table enjoyed billowing clouds of Winstons across a divider.
- The waitresses are skunky. And really, a costume where the bottom of your ass cheeks hang out for hours at a time has to be some sort of health hazard.
- The service sucks. It took them over 90 minutes to get us the damn wings.
- The food is godawful. "Oh, they have great wings" everyone said. The wings showed up. They had half an inch of grease on the bottom of the plate. But it wasn't grease, oh no. It was "butter-based sauce." Outback Steakhouse has wings that are an order of magnitude better. They offered a choice of dressings on their salad, and said choices came in the same handy sealed plastic cups they give you on airplanes.

The atmosphere is depressing, and the food is about as good as you can find at a skating rink. And who needs to stare at half-naked women you can't have? That's what the Internet is for.

They do *not* have good wings. Their wings are terrible. Their food is terrible. Their food is not worth consuming, let alone converting to feces and propelling forcefully out of ones body.

I've heard the Hooter's chicken nachos are "to die for". TO DIE FOR.

Jon said...

I thought that was that other place that are to die for. What is that place called again?

The fine establishment you're referring to is named "Doucher's" and it is located in Renton.

I agree with you 100% the food is terrible! I went there one day to apply for a job as bartender for some extra money through college. Now i know im in good shape 5'6" 120lbs and ive been told i should try modeling. The manager set down with me to interview me and told me they were not hiring because they were closing in three weeks for renevation. I called 3 weeks later and the hooters girl on the phone not only didnt know what i was talking about was also excessively rude. So if you ever apply for a job there watch out for the prick managers!

Why don't you post your picture here, and we'll be the judge of whether you can make it in the world of high-stakes Hootering. Well? Are you scared or something?

Lol, let me first start off ny saying that I am a "retired" Hooetrs Girl (7 years with HOA!)First off, the only people that ever complain about Hooters, are cheap, bald, or fat obnoxious men that that we avoid like grim death. Or bitchy fat woman! We can see you coming a mile away, you are spineless, and cowardly, or overly arrogant (for no good reason) because you feel like you can talk down to us. Why do you do this.....Because your wife has your balls in a jar next to her makeup. Why not, you aren't using them! You need to complain about a place where yet another woman ignored you. It makes you feel superior. But trust me baby, you can dog on the food, or the girls all you want, bit we ALL know why you are bitter, and it doesn't have a thing to do with "wings" or "service", lol, but keep telling yourself that. Have a Hooterific Day!

Yeah, hooters girl, nice insult, but seriously, i love how the fat rolls look on you ladies. You think that because you wear daisy dukes with a tight ass t shirt that somehow makes us not see your stretch marks and fat rolls. somehow that excuses shitty service and making us wait for 30 minutes for the damn bill.
You're glorified strippers whether you know it or not. Have a hooterific day!

I took my son for his 16th b-day with a friend of his. The girls were nasty, the food even nastier. They must marinate their food in grease for weeks before they actually cook it. The Hooters girls working this shift were clueless and not attractive at all. The pantyhose they wear with those shorts are so outdated. I guess it's like sausage casing to hold in the girls fat. AWFUL FOOD, AWFUL WAITRESSES with NO customer service skills whatsover. Won't ever go back!

my nineteen year old has worked there off and on for 3 years, their store in Sanford, Fl. got a new GM and he decided that my 5'8, 125 lbs, abercrombie model...daughter was too fat and ugly to work for Hooters and cut her schedule back to no days to force her to quit...pretty arrogant for an establishment who caters to job hopping, emotionally unstable, 20 something men....

Wow. Man, yall can sure be ridiculously rude about women who are honestly doing their best at their job. If the food is bad in your opinion, then just don't come back & most most definitely do NOT blame it on the Hooters Girls. (1) Just because one Hooters is bad in your opinion it doesn't mean that the whole world's Hooters need to go down too. (2) Remember, Hooters Girls serve, they don't cook. SO, maybe its time for you to stop picking on them for every little thing. Now, I'm not a Hooters Girl & I never was one, but I'm thinking about it. I think it will be a great experience for me as well as help me out with college money. Maaaan, I really hope you all stop looking down at the Hooters Girls as if their different from any other server anywhere else you go. Just because they dress in shorts & a tank this does NOT automatically make them "sleazy" or "stripper-like." Its JUST a uniform guys. Calm it down a bit. Maybe we all should take a field trip down to Tokyo, Japan so yall can see that japanese women dress even more revealing than that & it STILL isn't considered "hoe-ish." ITS JUST THE STYLE. Everywhere you go there's gonna be a different style. If you don't like the Hooter Girl style when you first walk into the restaurant, then just turn around & walk back out. They'll respect YOUR decision so why can't they go without your ignorant comments. Honestly. No child-ish remarks necessary. UGH! Its just ridiculous to me that I (19) have to tell a bunch of grown anonymous men & women how to act & speak when it comes to simply respecting the Hooters Girls & their job. I mean, I'm sorry your experience wasn't the best when you went, but really. That's all you had to say. OH! & stop doggin on the way the girls look & how they hold themselves. That especially pisses me off! I'm no Hooters Girl, but everyone has feelings. Don't talk about "fat" that's not there & the way they look. I don't believe in the word UGLY unless the word is being used to describe a persons attitude OR just all of your comments. I'm very passionate when it comes to telling other women they're beautiful. Its just so horrible how people see no problem putting other women down by commenting horribly on their appearance. Seriously. I think I'll leave it at that. AND TO ALL THE HOOTERS GIRLS.. Don't stress about these guys, their just jealous (:

Ate at Hooters for the first time today. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was excellent. But the food sucked. I actually got sick a few hours after eating. Steamed burgers and boneless "wings" made from white meat? Keep the girls, keep the nice family sports-bar vibe, but improve the food.

Maybe it's time for Hooters to get with the trends!!!

I hate working here.

As to what I do...
If I'm not a Hooters girl, what am I?

I ate at a Hooters once and only once while in Green Bay, WI.

The waitress was a waitress, she wasn't overly friendly or beautiful. She wasn't worth looking twice at.

The Hooters I ate at reminded me of a fast food joint or like a Culver's. It wasn't the most comfortable establishment I ever ate at.

We order some wings for appetizers and then I ended up getting a chicken sandwich.

The wings were far less desirable then I ever imagined. I'd rather eat Pizza Hut wings.

The sandwich was OK, but nothing I'd tell anyone about.

I also felt they were rather expensive for their sub-par atmosphere and food.

I'll never eat there or any other Hooters again.

As for all the folks telling people to lay off the girls, there's no need to. They took the job, they know what that entails, I've worked both food service and retail business for years and know what it's like.

More importantly any woman going in to apply for a job at Hooters who isn't aware of what "kind" of restaurant are either stupid or in denial.

You are food strippers, get over it.
