I just saw a new Hooters' Commercial where the waitresses are made to appear like they are dining with male patrons rather than serving them food. I mean it so blatant, it's sad/funny. Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting much from a Hooters' commercial, but seriously, how desperate have they become? What's next a waitress wiping off her chin as she comes out from under a table?

I like their chicken wings. Didn't even know they had waitresses there.

Also want to take this opportunity to say Hi to my wife, KBMagic, who reads this forum. :wave:

If you think Hooters has good wings, then you've never had actual good wings. I can't stand their food and the women that work at the one here don't remotely have nice hooters.

I just hate seeing the commercials around where I live because they isn't one within 100 miles of here.

I just hate seeing the commercials around where I live because they isn't one within 100 miles of here.They don't seem to be booming in New York State. I grew up in Buffalo and we had one, but it closed down a few years ago. Now the closest one to there is in Rochester (I think that one may have closed though, too).

Can't comment on the commercial since it's not posted, but doesn't surprise me at all that Hooters would advertise that their waitresses sit with customers. The last two times I've been (once alone and once with a friend), the waitress pulled up a chair and attempted to make small talk. Hot, yes, but incredibly awkward.

Sort of pointless as it's not like they can up-sell to a couch dance in the VIP room or anything.

Yeah, gonna have to see it. The girls at the Hooter's around here do tend to hand around the tables and chat a lot.

Must be something special in the ad if it's "reaching a new low". :shrug:

The waitresses at my Hooters sit with customers quite often. Without seeing the commercial, I don't see the big deal.

Their wings aren't the best, but I sometimes have a hankering for some.

Years ago, I brought a couple of female co-workers to Hooters for giggles. I wanted to see their reaction at the good-looking busty women. It was my first experience there. I'm no big expert on wings but they were mighty tasty.


While not a new commercial that OP must have seen, this looks like what he was describing in the beginning:

Had a coupon a looong time ago and got some carry out wings. Easily the worst wings I've ever tried. Just awful.

given the thread title and my haste, I originally read this as "appear like they are dining ON male patrons" which, is, of course, a commercial I'd like to see.

I have never eaten at Hooters.

I was in a Hooters once, but got kicked out before I had the chance to eat my Cuban sandwich. Apparently, the fact that I had had too much to drink and was puking all over the floor didn't sit well with management.

I love Hooters wings, but it's mainly because no other restaurants around here do breaded hot wings and I suck at making them myself.

Same here. I'm a big fan of breaded wings and it almost seems like I can't find them anywhere else.

The only think I hate about Hooters are the waitresses. None of them know what they're doing and they keep flirting to get better tips. I know they're trying to make a living and I respect that, so I'll always tip generously as long as you bring me my food in a timely manner, don't fuck up the order and keep the pitcher filled up. I don't need you to "flirt" with me or sit at my table and hang out with me while I have buffalo sauce all over my face because that is just annoying.

1849. On Bleecker St. in the village. Close to the ACE/BDFV West 4th. Excellent breaded buffalo-style wings, 20 cents each from 3-6 pm every day, all day Sun-Mon. Plus half-price beer and well drinks every day until 8 pm ($3 for a pint of good beer--Guinness, Sam, Bass, etc.). You can thank me later. ;)

Hooter's food sucks! And the waitresses here in Augusta are nothing to write home about. The only time they have smokin hot waitresses is during The Masters when they bus in the good stuff. We had one that looked almost exactly like Megan Fox last time. :drool:

Red Dog

The only Hooters commercial I've seen is the one with Dookie V, which is pretty odd.

I can't stand the breaded wings, but I think their 'naked' wings are semi-decent.

I'm going to be in the area on Saturday and I'm going to close this place down. Thanks :toast:

Yet they'll allow commercials showing the waitresses eating with customers. Ridiculous.

Hooters serves food? Seriously though, I ate there once and the waitresses weren't even hot. One of them had really messes up teeth, one was really short, and the other was just plain ugly.

Hooters food is shit, plain and simple. The boneless wings are decent if you also get a pitcher with them, but the caloric/fat content is enough to give you a heart attack before you get the check. The girls working there couldn't seem less interested in the guys who come in. I know it's all an act ahead of time so the magic doesn't work on me.

What? Heather at the Santa Monica Hooters told me I was cute and a nice guy. You mean to tell me she says that to other guys that and doesn't want to date me?

Thanks for ruining my weekend.

Taking a new low? What!

You realize you're talking about a company that parades an owl as it's corporate brand image, while masquerading the fact that their name really implies hot women wearing short shorts while showing off lots of cleavage.

They should have called the company boobies instead. Then I'd eat there!

Hooters has really shitty food, and the ladies know it. I got a shitty sandwich there once, and she looked at me like I was crazy when I looked at her like she was crazy for charging me $8 for the shitty thing.

They were all average girls, too. The shiny leggings look shittier than the sandwiches, too. Overall, it's a shitty place for boobs and food.

Hooters girls are the ones who weren't hot enough for stripping.

Actually, while most of them aren't all that hot, there are usually a couple that are quite fine. At least at the Hooters I frequent.
