    I go to the one in Hollywood quite often and I would say that the place is always at least 70% families. Granted...it is in the middle of a tourist area and most are probably families on vacation, sight-seeing...but I've been to the Hooters in Santa Monica as well and it was full of families too.


    Yes...Hooters IS a family restaurant. Maybe not for all families...but to try to paint it as anything other than it is is dishonest.
    I mean like yah....
    I expect to watch UFC Championships, See these bikini clad women, and pics like this

    in all "family" restaurants. Anything else is just craziness.

    Your distortions here epitomize those who don't have a clue about Hooters restaurants.

    The picture was pulled straight from their web site, as was the information about the Hooters calendar tour and UFC fighting. Like I said before Hooters is more a sports bar than a restaurant. Even their menu of chicken wings, hamburgers and curly fries is indicative of sports bar. I have been to plenty so I am well aware of the atmophere.

    None most likely, the point being this is what Hooters represents, their brand if you will. I personally don't have a problem with it but I can see where others would have a problem with it and not what their kids to go there. I wouldn't want my under 16 child, male or female going there. I also think it's disingenuous to try to brand it as "any other restaurant".

    So because Applebee's or Chili's (which also show fights, games, and other sports especially at their BARS) hires men too and has drab outfits, that makes the difference between "Sports Bar" and "Family Restaurant"?

    Hooters.com
    Yep, totally a sports bar menu. No salads, specialty entrees, or healthy food choices here!


    Your opinion makes the Hooter's waitresses cry.

    The calendars are right there on their menu.

    There ya go. You figured out the difference. Other restaurants incidentally show sporting events in their BARS, away from the main dining area. Places like Hooters, the whole place is designed toward being able to view sporting events.

    Why do you think they don't realize why they are employed at Hooter's?

    If so, I'd say that the teacher showed such bad judgment that I would question her suitability for being a teacher even if I didn't find the act offensive, myself.

    What a stupid thing to do.
    Some Hooters are in the more enlightened areas; in York county, they are semi-topless.
    The teacher showed poor judgment?
    Maybe.
    Suspending him is the true "poor judgment"; allowing one child to have that much power.... We do have a shortage of men.

    Re: Hooters - should this teacher be suspended for this?

    I would have taken them to a different place but that is a personal decision to avoid any possible or potential controversy.


    I voted no anyway.


    I have been a few times over the years and I do not recall outstanding food or even what I ate.

    What I do recall are the hotties...




    The ones I have seen in the North and the Northeast did not have nearly as good looking girls as the ones around Texas however. No contest.
    Thank you

    I would agree that Yes...it does have a "Sports bar" feel....but no more than many similar restaurants in the same vein...ESPN Zone, BJ's Brewpubs, ....
    All "all age" restaurants.
