Not what you think – Hooters is not what you think. I will say that the sentence I just wrote is more appropriate if you are a regular. If you are a regular (or even a tourist, but it is more appropriate for regulars) and you engage the girls in conversation, you will realize that they are not only nice, but they are smart and they have a lot of ideas. Yes, you can have great conversation at Hooters. As far as looks go, most of the girls are very attractive.
As far as the food goes, the French Fries are not as good as they are at say McDonalds or Burger King, but they are good. The hamburgers are admittedly below average. The salads are very good. The chicken wings are good as well. You must try the mexicurley fries, that may be the "feature" food of Hooters only because you can get better salads, burgers and fries in other places.
They also have over 20 televisions and if you are at the bar and it is not too full or someone isn't watching something, you can just request the manager to change the channel and you can watch whatever game you want for the most part. If it is really slow, you may even get to watch the news if you choose. They also have UFC PPV's.
Much improved – I see many of the other reviews downgrading the females but their new staff is definitley not unattractive or manly. They have very pretty, friendly waitresses of various body types. We had a fantastic time with our friends from out of town. Great place to catch the games and enjoy the infamous wings.
Worst Ho0ters. – The entire restaurant is one big sad Irony.
No h0oters in sight. One surfboard flat bartender who was to manly looking from a mans point of view.
One fat chick. Two borderline fat. No cheerleaders. No p0rn stars. But they were nice and polite. I'll give em that. Ho0ters Mexico was even better. Irony.
First time at the NYC location...... and last time. – The Manhattan location is filled with incredibly unattractive waitresses that have no business being in tight clothing much less work here. I have been to other locations in the country and around the world and have never seen standards so low, or in the NYC location's case, thrown completely out of the window. And the clientele is on par with the nasty looking waitresses. Mostly Bridge and Tunnel crowd and Jersey trashy types and hoodies. The bathroom was disgustingly filthy. I have seen cleaner bathrooms at rest stops on the highway. Food was mediocre at best and there's no AC!!! It was like being in a sauna surrounded by classless losers. One redeeming quality is that the servers were quite friendly albeit not very attentive. Waited 30 minutes to flag one down to get some drinks. Bottom Line is unless you're really really desperate and have ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE ELSE TO GO, I guess this could work... maybe. Then again this is NYC, there are plenty of far superior sports bars and dining establishments.
Testosterone rules at this casual hot-wing hangout. – In Short
Waitresses in shiny tan nylons and tight, orange, '70s track shorts serve up beer and pub grub at this proudly "tacky yet unrefined" sports bar-restaurant. Tables are packed with men of all ages, from high-powered suits to college guys in baseball caps. While salads, sandwiches and shellfish are on the menu, most folks order chicken wings--available in six levels of spice intensity, from mild to super-hot 911.
Rubbish – The worst women that I have seen in any hooters nationwide, miserable and none too pretty either....it should not be over 100 degrees either!
shemp – The buffalo chicken tenders are the best! And the cesear salad is not bad.
yes – the food is ok and the legs are awesome!!!!!!!! a good place to hang out and watch a game
GOOD FOOD GREAT SERVICE – Nothing beats being served platters of shrimp and wings and pitchers of beer, by the HOTTEST waitstaff in NY!!!! Great prices for so much eye candy!!!
Yucky wings – Go figure, my girlfriend likes this place, I don't (hmm....). The wings aren't buffalo style like I hoped: they're breaded and deep-fried, then put in a sticky, yucky tobasco-y sauce. Yes, hard not to look at the waitresses (and they're really good servers), but as I'm reminded by everyone who knows Hooters, they don't rank anywhere near the girls at the Hooters locations South of the ol' Mason-Dixon. I'm still searching the menu for something I like. At least there are many TVs for sports, that's the only reason I allow people to take me there anymore.
