Busy and active

Loved the location. Able to view all around the city while eating. Pretty busy and friendly. Walking distance from the Colorado River and many other locations.

I have to saw this was the worst restaurant I have ever been too. First I ordered a drink and all you can eat wings with fries. Proceeded to the restroom and it was DISGUSTING! Spray painted stalls, paper towels overflowing out of the trash, toilets gross! Went back and sat down and now worried that if they can't clean... More

We went on the 4th of July after the nearby fireworks... With about 5 million other people. Of course we expected it to be crowded and were okay with the anticipated wait of 45 minutes for a table. It ended up only being 20 minutes but then when we were seated the waitress took forever to come to the table,... More

I have been to Hooters dozens of times throughout the US. It's a good, greasy treat that I indulge in every so often. I made the mistake of going to the Hooters in Austin. I waited an hour for my food and had the unfortunate fate of sitting near the kitchen. The cooks all speak loud and offensively/vulgarly. We received... More

Hooters, as usual, can be relied upon to produce excellent chicken wings. However, I tried something new this time. It was a spinach salad with shrimp. I ate every bite. My only complaint was that there wasn't a second bowl of salad waiting for me to eat after the first one. We also had great service and it was a... More

We had hot wings for dinner with beer. It was really great plus the service is awesome. I mean I'm Sri Lankan and I felt really welcomed at the place as a foreigner.

After trying to see the bats at the Congress Ave, I got starving and wanted to try this restaurant because I never went to one before. I waited 5 minutes to be seated (as an advice asks for) in a empty restaurant. Then, I waited more ten minutes to somebody to get my order but nobody came. I enjoyed the... More

By the title, one doesn't know what to expect. Well, this restaurant was fabulous. Our waitress Alexis was very helpful, fast & friendly. The wings were big and delicious. Alexis said the Naked Daytona wings were awesome and she was right. Clam Chowder and Salad were also great and my husband really loved his big dipper chili cheese fries. The... More

I have always really liked the breaded "HOT" wings at Hooters and apparently they have gotten even better!! They were noticeably bigger, juicier and just better. I would almost take a star off for the small size ranch that you have to purchase separately for $.89. It used to be a bigger portion for sure and with the wings being... More
