Now I feel a little better because all the people ITT trashing Hooters and I'm over here thinking about how much I loved that buffalo chicken sandwich I had this weekend, but that's all I ever get there so maybe that's just what they're good at. I always get delivery though, I don't have to deal with the awkward Hooters environment.

Try poking slits in the top of the container. This Vietnamese restaurant near me does this when I ordered fried rice to go. Didn't hit me at first why they do that, but now it does.

I'll be straight up with you, I work in a kitchen at a restaurant and rarely wash my hands thoroughly in the bathroom. It's because I know that once I touch the door handle or whatever to walk out, I'm once again contaminated.

If there's people outside the bathroom, I'll kinda pretend to wash them, but theres a handwashing station in the kitchen I use immediately to be very thorough.

Where does everyone live that Hooters and BWW are your primary wing options? Where I am, there are tons and tons of local bars and pubs that have way better wings. I would never even consider Hooters or BWW as an option when going out for wings, they just pale in comparison to other places.

Really? I find that odd. I grew up in Ft. Wayne IN and we had about 30 places with amazing wings and Hooters and BWW didn't even make the list. Granted I gtfo and now I'm having a hard time finding any decent wings in WI, but my sis is in Denver and says theirs are all shit comparatively too. Maybe Ft. Wayne should start promoting its chicken wing prominence, there's shit else going for it.

But they're just chicken nuggets. I mean, do you, live and let live. But part of the joy I get from a plate of wings is devouring each bone, scouring it for any scrap I might have missed, ripping the two bones in the flat apart, suckingbthem clean. Then enjoying that feeling of having an entire plate covered in bone scraps, like, "yeah, I did that"

Completely agree. Even Wing Stop is significantly better as a chain. That being said, I personally don't mind bdubs. Most of the food is outrageously bland, but the drink specials don't suck and I've enjoyed meeting friends there. Hooters is vastly overrated, although I do think it used to be better. I remember eating there about 15 years ago and it was pretty good. I only ever go every 3 years or so and every time I went back it was a little worse. Plus I really don't care that much for the whole "man cave" atmosphere. The amount of overtly weird men and creepy shit I've witnessed there is really disconcerting while you're trying to eat.

Best wings I've ever had: Pizza Bolis is a regional pizza chain in Maryland and they have excellent wings. Bon Chon is a Thai chain that has stellar wings. Killens BBQ in Houston has delicious smoked wings. Hideaways BBQ, also Maryland, has a really good dry rub. I could list a dozen more at least.

I’ve had a handful of experiences with their food ranging from top-tier wings and sandwiches to what you describe. However, this was at multiple locations over the course of years so I don’t know if the variations are due to quality changing over time, differences between franchisees, or both.

If you like your wings breaded and deep fried, Hooters has the best breaded, deep fried wing in the game. Not a lot people like that though. Their other wing styles are nothing special, so that's why they get a lot of flak.

Funny, I’ve never care or been into a hooters in the US.

When I went to Mexico to see family, all my adult cousins were raving about hooters. I begrudgingly went and was amazed by not only the wings quality, but also the beer selection, and how not boob-centric the staff were. If anything it was like the local volleyball team was working at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant.

Place was also not expensive, but I think that has to do with it being in pesos and the exchange rate is too good for us Americans.

I had my 13th birthday party at a Hooters in 2003 and all the waitresses were super flirty and one of them even did this thing where she rotated on an upside down bar stool for my entertainment. Looking back on it now, it's a little creepy. I'm just imagining a 13 year old girl having her birthday at a restaurant called "Dongs" and a scantly clad dude doing the same bar stool routine for a 13 year old girl. I don't think the waitresses were legit hitting on me and wanted to fuck a 13 year old in the throes of puberty, they were just doing their job, but it was still weird regardless.

Honestly that seems creepy as hell... and you’re right if gender swapped people would be out for blood... but you’re a boy so all good right? 🤢

Coming from someone who was taken advantage of at a young age (Id call it being raped, but hey it was the 90s so hey good for me right) I assure you this kind of shit needs to stop.

I dunno, little boy pageants would cause an outrage, but little girls pageants are a ok, apparently. It's not like I got dragged in there, I wanted to go. And, like I said, I don't think the waitresses were adamantly trying to hit on me for real, it's their job to be all flirty and do sexualized shit like the barstool routine. If they refused, they probably would've got fired. Hooters is just a weird place because kids are allowed. Sorry to hear about you being a victim of rape. That's a fucked up thing to happen to anybody, to say the least. Hope everything is okay now.

FWIW things were a bit different back then attitude wise. I mean even in 2012 Adam Sandler made That's My Boy where he fucked his teacher as a teen and it did "ok". The teacher goes to jail for statutory rape (I think, its been a while) and characters are still cheering on Sandler's dirtbag character in the movie.

Dong is a noise a bell makes and I was going to design a bell for our logo that is clearly alluding to a ballsack, like the owl eyes in the hooters logo alludes to tits. This on top of serving gourmet hot dogs and sausages as our primary entrées. I like your idea, too, though.

If it were Pecker's, for the logo you could do a woodpecker with a long beak that kind of looks like a dick.

This is all good stuff. My only problem with the name "Pecker's" is a pecker is usually an insult for a small dick. At Dongs, we're a family restaurant that strives to provide only the most massive dicks to keep our customers happy. Dongs: Quality you can taste...and measure.

So I’m like, “well there you go.”

Then I move on with my life.

Then I think... wait. Did the next post say Jon Lovett was born in 1982? Is there more than one Jon Lovett? He’s gotta be way older than 37.

And then I realize that I’m thinking of Jon Lovitz and I have no idea who Jon Lovett is.

And I’m pretty sure Jon Lovitz isn’t gay, but I don’t care enough at this point to look it up.

So I read your comment and I was like "man, I must live under a rock, I don't know any of these people" so I started researching, at first, just to find out if Jon Lovitz is gay for you. I found out that Jon Lovitz is a comedian from Saturday Night Live. I also found out he was, at one point, engaged to a woman. I can't find any record of him having any kind of relationship with a man, so I'm concluding that he's not likely to be gay. The job is finished, and we can all rest now.

Yeah that’s wrong. Private businesses are allowed to ban concealed carry in every US state. So while you can still do it regardless, it would be very much illegal for you to do so depending upon the Hooters’ policy. If Hooters does 51% or more of their sales in alcohol (doubtful), it’s DEFINITELY very illegal.

It depends on the laws of the state. For example if it’s my home state of Texas (notorious for lax gun laws) if the establishment has a 30.06 sign on the door prohibiting concealed carry, then yes, it’s very much illegal and you could be cited/arrested for carrying, as it’s a Class C misdemeanor.

Many states have similar or more strict laws.

*Furthermore if a business has a policy of no firearms and you aren’t adhering to it, you’re de facto breaking the law by trespassing. Which is also a misdemeanor.

Hooters has been on the decline because of - and this is really my untested hypothesis - a widening gap between people who don't care about that kind of thing and people who are made uncomfortable by it for a variety of reasons.

The people who don't care have been pulled away to places like the Tilted Kilt. By comparison, it makes hooters look PG.

And it's definitely viewed differently now. There are a lot more people in 2019 who don't want to eat at any place like that than in say 1989. Despite being completely addicted to bdsm tentacle cartoon porn and the like, we have very different ideas of what passes for acceptable sexual stuff in social situations.

I wonder if easy access to pornography has had an impact on places like this. How much of a thrill is it to go to a restaurant where the waitresses wear short shorts and tank tops, when you could just stay home and look at -- for example -- bdsm tentacle cartoon porn.

It's not supposed to be for kids and there isn't any stripping. The scantily clad waitresses are just a marketing tactic, kind of like having TVs in a sports bar - the food is basically the same at any other place, so the companies rely on "special features" to draw in customers. The other part to it is the idea that customers who are attracted to women are likely to spend more time (and money) in the restaurant if the waitresses are stroking their ego (flirting). Alcohol + inflated ego + a boner (or lady boner) = clouded judgement, ie spending more money.

But I personally think it's sick when people want the waitresses to flirt/be sexy with kids or teens. The waitresses (most likely) aren't pedophiles, they just have to put on a show in order to keep their jobs.

You know, I just can’t do this place. I know the ladies are there as a huge part of the aesthetics, but it feels awkward taking it all in. Same for strip clubs.

Yes, I can't do strip clubs because I have a daughter and I know they'd be somewhere else if they thought that they could be, but circumstances in most cases see them ending up 'trapped' working there. Hooters is more "eh" to me. The Tilted Kilt is pretty bad. I stopped at one of those because I was hungry in the road once, and they were so in your face with the flirting. OK, great. Yep, you're hot. Can I get some more water please?

Hahaha I dated a dancer long after my first visit to the strip club, and was able to see the other side of it. It’s not a god time and those girls aren’t treated as well as they should be for having to do what they do.

I have a lot of issues with strip clubs but you're wrong if you think they'd all rather be somewhere else. Many dancers genuinely enjoy their jobs, and are doing it as a stop gap before they launch their professional career

And it's kinda weird you only care cause of your own daughter

I used to volunteer for a non-profit that helped strippers transition into different jobs other than stripping if they were interested (we never pressured them, just wanted to offer a way out) . Sure there are some girls that enjoy stripping and have long term obtainable plans/goals, but they are the minority. The huge majority of these women feel trapped and stuck. The “no touching” rule is generally a joke and there’s tons of shady stuff going on behind the scenes that include lots of drugs, prostitution, and potentially human trafficking.

When you hire a prostitute do you actually believe you’re the best she’s ever had too?

Some dancers probably enjoy their jobs, but “many”? Come on.

Using a loved one as an opportunity for empathy and growth sounds healthy and natural to me.

There are lots of things I didn't properly understand, as they were outside my experience, but through others I've grown a great deal.

I am sad to see your cynicism.

I don’t think the cynicism is unfounded, loads of people say that phrase of “what if it was your daughter” is dehumanizing because it should be more about “they’re a human”

I agree whole heartedly. I’m glad anytime people can empathize and grow, but realizing this propertizes people is part of that growth. I’m not against violence to the elderly because my Dad is old, I’m against it because violence towards anyone is bad. It’s not cynicism, it’s a step stone to the next level of understanding.

The problem is that these woman have been objectified and dehumanized. why would we not directly address the issue and humanize them?

You're not wrong, but if you really want to change someone's mind and not just shout about it on the internet, you'll need some humility too. Realize that we are all just humans. Be patient with one another.

The most awkward part of it is seeing the kind of guys who go there and completely eat up the whole novelty of it. Usually there by themselves, talking to the waitresses like they've been best buds forever, and you can tell they go multiple times a week. But also the servers probably get most of their tips from those guys.

Indeed. I've had to evade numerous attempts to take me to Hooters or just straight strip clubs, mainly by my elder brother, dad, uncle, or one of my cousins. Why would I want to go there? I'm too self-conscious to ask a girl out after three years trying, why would I go somewhere to stare at random chicks? Especially since I don't like wings.

Even if I was twisted enough to see them as a product, to twist the phrase, why would I rent a view of the cow if I can't even try the milk?

I remember running into my friends dad at a movie theatre once (I saw him, didn’t actually talk to him) and I texted him and was just like “yo I just saw your dad out and about what a coincidence” and when he asked where I was I decided to mess with him and told him Hooter’s. He had a hard time believing me and demanded proof so I eventually just told him I was watching a movie.

Thing is his dad, unbeknownst to me, had recently come out. I couldn’t help but feel bad afterwards even though it wasn’t intentional.
