“Hooters by any other name...”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

A typical Hooters franchise - food is middle-of the road, service is OK. Nothing you wouldn't expect from Hooters.

“Super Service, Not-So-Super Food!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Our server, Chelsey, was absolutely TOPS! I can't say enough GOOD about her. Clean, well kept, attentive, cheerful, a pleasure to have her as our waitress. The food, not so much. Although not busy (3:45 p.m.), we had a 30 minute wait for our burgers and fries.

When the food arrived, the fries were cold and we had to re-order, which Chelsey did cheerfully. The meat quality was top-notch, but...and here's the but...I ordered the BBQ burger, and I got a hamburger patty, cheese, and 2 strips of bacon---NO barbecue sauce, no smoke sauce, no nothing. I ate it, quietly. My granddaughter who was with me, ordered a totally different item and got the identical same dressings as I did.

Our server was definitely worth the $6 tip; the food was not worth the $18 check.

“Wouldn't go again”

You get what you pay for, average food and trashy women. You know before going into this restaurant what you'll be getting.

“Not your Uncle's favorite dive, but still not a place for a NOW meeting or someone hungry for more than bar food.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

I had never been to a Hooters before, but I heard all the stories. All told it's a burger bar with a bevy of babes wearing short shorts and cut tees at your beck and call. So I was really skeptical when my friend (a huge fan of Hooters) invited me there for dinner.

And surprise: it is the burger bar of infamy. But Hooters is something else, too. It's a cultural time warp. A politically-incorrect bit of post-feminist machismo-meets-Americana gone amok. It's equal parts kitschy roadside attraction and wanna-be biker bar. Ultimately, Hooters is a place where junior college students and professional wait staff alike can make good tips right off-the-highway--without the use of dance pole or under the protection of a bouncer.

The food was below average. My burger was cooked to order, but without much care towards presentation. The fries were bland and a bit soggy. And my supposedly handcrafted, Oktoberfest-style beer was just okay. It could have been any mass-produced amber-colored ale on the market.

My friend ordered buffalo chicken strips. One of the specialties of the house and his favorite thing on the menu. It could have bat guano fried in 10W40 motor oil: he wasn't there for the food. He pretended to be interested in his order, but only when his eyes weren't following our order taker--a sophomore at the local state university, who did a tremendous job. (Despite her cartoon wardrobe, she was serious waitress.)

If you're looking for a burger chain, there are better ones around. But if you're looking for a way to bond with your buddy who can't get enough of the house special buffalo wings served with a soft porn sideshow, then this is the place.

“Poor Servcie”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Ordered breaded wings, got naked, ordered fries, didn't get fries. Wings were dripping in grease, No cute little standard paper in my to go box. Not like it was croweded. No one else was at the bar and only about 5 tables filled the whole restaurant. Meca needs to pay better attention. Maybe I would have had better service if I was a guy. Thank goodness I don't live here and am just passing thru. Atlanta stores are MUCH better.
