Dallas does as well, so not sure where that poster was referring to. Any big city has a large population. Also a business going under doesn't automatically mean it was a poor business idea. Perhaps they closed because their owners didn't know how to run a restaurant, or the food was awful, or they chose the wrong location with too high a rent.


Roy Rogers went out of business as did Kenny Rogers fried chicken, but it doesn't mean fast food is a bad business model, just the way those owners ran their own fast food business was bad. Just saying, everyone is making all sorts of assumptions why they went under with no idea if they are valid assumptions.

As for the female customers, you can't equate a restaurant to the Magic Mike movie. When you go to a male strip club, the strippers put on a real show. They aren't just taking their clothes off while hanging on a stripper's pole so the women can see their skin. Those guys are real performers with real dance routines.

So, you go to a male strip club to watch a show. You don't go to a restaurant to watch the waiter. You go to eat, visit with your friends, and a good waiter is unobtrusive, not wagging his wienie in your face.

Personally, I am put off by the thought of anyone naked cooking and serving my food. It just seems unsanitary.
Considering the near strip club focus of a Hooters the men are not there so much to see a woman in shorts and a tight tee shirt but rather it is the sexual tease factor helps to keep other women away. So without a policy which would be fought legally on other grounds you are making a default men's club. Something men with the same sex orientation don't need. So in their case it is a matter of go big, a fuller sexual tease, or don't go at all.

ROTFLMAO!

Nature being what it is..better allow some room for expansion!

I was last in a Hooters about 10-15 years ago with a friend that picked the place.

I just always found it to be skeevy.

Found out recently that the Twin Peaks in the area has at least one girl working there as a hostess that is 16-17.

Soooo many creepers out there that's scary, heck I know adult women working at normal businesses having creeper issues, I can't imagine what it must be like at other places.

I was in El Paso 2 years ago staying in a hotel next to a Twin Peaks. Had no idea what to expect, I was thinking something to do with that TV series.

Shocker! In more ways then one. Have to say it was well staffed, the food was better than Hooters, but the most surprising thing was all the families with young children coming in.

Just found one that opened in the Seattle area in Tukwilla. Their first store in the area, exact same layout as El Paso but not as busy.
