The owner of the Royal Pig Pub, who happens to also own most of the Hooters in South Florida, gave me a card for some free wings a while back, so I decided to cash it in. I'd never been to the location on the corner of Andrews Ave and Cypress Creek, although I've been to every other place in the shopping center.
They have lunch deals up until 2pm; but by the time I got here it was after 2:30 and most of the crowd was gone. There was no hostess, so I just grabbed a high top and grabbed a menu. They have all sort of handouts on the table outlining their specials during football, a bar menu; but I was just getting wings. It took a little while for someone to come over; apparently they change shifts at 3pm so the girl assigned to my table was leaving. I ordered medium buffalo wings and an iced tea.
Like most hooters, this one is a big room with a bar in the back and TVs set on ESPN throughout the room.
The also have a patio with a bar and TVs outside. I hadn't had wings at a Hooter's since moving to South Florida. I never really cared for them, they were always drenched in orange sauce, and I don't like my wings "wet". When she put them in front of me, I wondered if they'd made them plain.
But upon further inspection, where was a puddle of sauce in the plate. It appears that "medium" heat here is closer to mild. The sauce was about as close to plain butter as you can get.
The wings were much better than I remembered. Plump wings, juicy inside. Kind of a watery blue cheese, but hey, it's Hooters.
The girls at this location were generally very attractive; which is an important element at a Hooters.
Disclosure: I received the wings and the iced tea free from management.
