The Vibes

If you’re looking for a place that’s not exactly “family-friendly” (like Disneyland), then it’s just natural if you immediately thought about Hooters. It’s a famous brand, but some call it notorious for starting the whole breastaurant dining category.

For plenty of guys, there’s nothing to complain about when they’re served by pretty ladies in short shorts and low-cut tank tops. It’s not exactly politically correct in these “woke” times, and in fact, there was a drive to turn Hooters into a family-friendly restaurant. But that didn’t really work…

All in all, it’s always about the ladies. They’re friendly and bubbly, and many of them will even strike up conversations with your group. It’s quite an upbeat place.

Still, if you’re feeling guilty about ogling the servers, there are always the TV screens to focus on, where some game is usually shown live. Or, you can always enjoy sharing stories and jokes with your friends, right?

On the other hand, for Buffalo Wild Wings, it’s really more about the games shown. In fact, a few years ago the chain even implemented a new layout that offered a more authentic stadium experience. So, it was like going to a sports stadium but without the scalper’s atrociously high ticket prices. In fact, Buffalo Wild Wings prices are even cheaper than Hooters.

Over the years, the bar area became more prominent, while the video screens became almost large enough to compare with the ones in arenas. But it’s all about the sports, and for the guys that’s always important too, especially when the playoffs come around.

The Wings

Despite the markedly different vibes inside Hooters and Buffalo Wild Wings, both brands like to boast about the range and quality of the wings options. And they’re both justifiable in their boasting.

Hooters are proud of how they make all their wings fresh each day. You can go with Boneless or Bone-in, depending on your personal preference and philosophy. Some guys opt for the Daytona Style, when you sauce the wings and then put them back on the grill for a bit more sizzle. The wings can be wrapped in bacon, for some real meaty goodness. Some (but not all) Hooters locations even have smokers for Smoked Wings. You can have your wings breaded, or they can be naked.
