We just had a new Hooters open up in my town. My uncle took my dad and me out to lunch there today. Most of you may know that I am legally blind. I have some sight but not too much of it. Raising up that little factoid may bring up the question "What's the benefit of going to Hooters if you're blind?" Well I am here to answer just that.
First of all the atmosphere is awesome, even at lunch on a Friday afternoon. There's a great variety of pop music from the past 50 years being played (although my dad and Uncle wished the volume was a little lower). There were plenty of Flat Screen TV's of adequete size around so you won't miss anything if you go during the Big Game. It's almost like a beach house with all the palm trees and decorative lighting around the place.
Now I really can't see the main attraction, if you will but I sure liked the wait staff. It was really busy there but the staff never missed a beat and was highly enthusiastic. Usually at a restaurant the person taking yoru order is formal and stands while taking your order. The nice girl that took ours actually got into the booth and sat down with us. She was very polite and very friendly. In fact she stopped by several times to tell us what was going on and told us about upcoming events at that particular location.
Several times during the meal my dad described to me that there was a lot of fun going on. A few times one of the girls stood up on the bar and danced with a hula hoop. I couldn't see that but the crowd seemed to enjoy it very much. Also there was a Birthday in the House and it was a big deal with a rowdy song while everyone cheered and turned over to look. I am not really certain what all happened but there were balloons involved. I was told that none of the Hooters is franchised and maybe this is what happens at every location. If so can I have a description (as long as it is decent enough to post here).
The food...ahh yes! Very good stuff. We all had a Melted Grilled chicken sandwich. The "Sammy" consisted of grilled chicken, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms beneth a layer of melted provolone cheese! MMmmm! It was delicious!
I give the place a 5 our of 5. I may not be able to really see what makes Hooters so attractive to most people, I still love it. I love the atmosphere and it is a very fun place to eat and have a good time. I sure did and I didn't have to see what everyone else goes there for!
