Hooters is a family-friendly restaurant which prides itself on world-class service, great food and a fun atmosphere. Hooters first opened its doors in 1983 in Clearwater, Florida, and now operates more than 445 restaurants in 42 states and 26 foreign countries, with 4 locations right here in San Diego. Hooters is well known for its “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined” brand of food and fun served in a casual, beach-themed atmosphere, a menu that features seafood, sandwiches and Hooters signature chicken wings, and service provided by the all-American cheerleaders, the Hooters Girls. Hooters also has some menu offerings such as Fried Pickles, sliced and lightly breaded; or Lots-a-Tots covered with bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives.
Hooters Restaurants have supported the military since the restaurant’s inception in 1984. Raising money for fundraisers including Tom Valentine for Operation Homefront and sending Hooters Girls overseas for the Hooters Operation Let Freedom Wing tour are just a couple of ways. Hooters Restaurants also send the Hooters Calendars to our U.S. Troops overseas as part of a program called OPERATION: Calendar Drop.
