Really Bad Service – Today, 11/30/2010, I went to the Hooters at 2519 Southwest Fwy, Houston, Texas. I ordered a Steak Sandwich and an order of curly fries. 25 minutes later the food showed up. It had been sitting so long the grease was congealed on the plate and the curly fries were cold. I decided to go get a hot meal elsewhere and asked the waitress for the check. With the bill I got some guy who demanded to know, "We got a problem here?!" I explained I was trying to pay my bill and leave, since the food was cold, the service was lousy and I was determined to have a hot meal. He then asked if I wanted a to go box since I hadn't taken a bite out of the sandwich. I told him no, it was still COLD, and paid the bill with cash. He didn't bother to ask if I wanted my change back, I guess he felt even cold food and bad service deserves a tip.
Over the years of eating at Hooters I have picked up on the nuances of Hooter's service; (1)if you go in a group you get better service,(2)if you go with a group of athletic young fellas, you get greater service (3) if you order beer , you get faster service. But if you are an old geezer like me who eats alone , no matter how much you over tip, your social security check will show up before your food will, even if the dang politicians keep raising the retirement age. Another old guy told me to skip Hooters and have the "Business Man's Lunch" at the local Strip Club, since the food was better, the women were classier and the clientele were more sophisticated. I thought he was joking, until today.
Avoid avoid avoid – Having three 18 year old girls visiting from the UK they chose this place to have an 'American diner' experience - oh did we get it wrong. The atmosphere was flat, the food was inedible and only the attentive waitress made up for what would have been a complete disaster. My husbands oysters were returned as he didnt believe they were fresh - the manager did visit our table and said they had just been shucked but even that wouldnt persuade my husband to eat them. The chicken wings were decidedly average and were supposed to be medium hot, they werent so we had to add hot sauce to them. Everyone had burgers which we all regreted for the rest of the evening. Not an experience I will ever repeat......just a shame that we wasted an evening of their trip on such a terrible meal.
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.
bentley – If you've not ordered your wings "naked Bentley flappers" with blue cheese, then you have not lived.
Bentley is an off-the-menu hot sauce that, when put on unbreaded ("naked") wings, is just yummy, yummy, yummy!
