Vegas Eats: Hooters

Michael Mina? Delmonicos? Cut? Nah, We'll Go To Hooters

Vegas Eats : Hooters @ Hooters Hotel & Casino Las Vegas

During the planning stages of our last trip to Vegas, Chuckmonster started a thread on the board asking for recommendations for our Big Dinner of the trip. We usually hit up one fancy-pants joint per trip and we were at a loss for where to go. We had several great suggestions from our lovely readers, including Hugo's Cellar, Delmonicos, Michael Mina, Mesa Grill and the ilk. I salivated thinking of the lovely piece of cow I was going to ingest, topped off with a mouth-watering dessert and a Kona coffee.

Fast forward to the Saturday night of our weekend in town. We managed to find ourselves at the Tropicana of all places, low-rolling our way up the Strip. Suddenly, before we knew what was happening, possibly due to the microwave-like conditions in their slot floor, hunger struck in a big way. SUPER HUNGRY.

Chuckmonster and I have a long history together. When we first began dating 257 years ago, we would find ourselves driving around town for hours while trying to figure out what to eat. We would end up insane with hunger, droopy with low blood sugar and cranky from lack of good eats. It can be an ugly thing if it hits both of us at once. Just ask him about the time I drove us to some random joint in Koreatown out of sheer frustration only to be met with weird foodstuff (mostly with the heads still attached) and a non-English speaking wait staff who did nothing to make us feel comfortable in their establishment.

In any case, what I am getting at here is that while we were not driving around town, we were still hit with the same hunger induced agitation and found that being at the Trop, our choices were limited. No way was I about to trek across the road to the MGM - that would easily take an hour just to get to the restaurants located within its labyrinth. I could not think of anywhere else nearby as my brain was close to shutdown mode.

Like a flash of orange lightning, it hit me : just outside the doors and a mere 5 minute walk away was HOOTERS. Hooters = wings. I like wings. Besides, I have never been to a Hooters before. It was decided, Chuckmonster and I would go to Hooters for hot wings. I began to salivate at the thought of some buffalo wings and blue cheese. We immediately took our leave of the Trop and hot footed it next door.

The Hooters restaurant is close to the rear of the property and when we got there I was dismayed to see a line stretching clear across the casino. I began to throw another hunger tantrum when Chuck quickly calmed me down and steered me to the back of the line. He assured me that this was going to be the quickest way to food given all our other options. I gave in and stood, glaring at everyone, in line.

Twenty minutes later, we found ourselves at a table in the middle of the joint. We were greeted by the ugliest waitress there who was not sure if root beer was something Hooters had. Eventually, she figured it out and brought us our drinks. We ordered up some wings and she asked if we wanted celery, carrots and blue cheese. That seemed like a redundant question to me given that we had just ordered up WINGS. However, turns out, those things are not included and are extra items on the bill (less than a buck I believe, but please!)

Yeah, this Hooters does not have hot waitresses. When I went there our waitress had to ask the bartender if they had Bud Light. I was shocked. That's like the all-around beer that every bar/restaurant has. Hooters food is just.....not good....and the beer didn't taste any better.
The original Hoots is like 30 minutes from my house.

sucky. i often end up in the same dying-of-hunger mode out of indecision in vegas, and i end up going the long route and eating late and mostly happy. though, poorer for it.

but there's a good question in here: where would you find good buffalo wings in vegas? cause now that i've heard it i think that would be kind of a great pit stop late night...

We ate at Hooters 5 days ago and we too were sadly disappointed. Hubby asked the waitress what kind of beer they had and she could only come up with two names... but from my seat I could see five taps... hmmm... I ordered a margarita. It was $7 for what seemed to be a shooter of margarita mix. Boo hiss, the drinks right on the strip are stronger and bigger for similar money. We did get our wings "naked" so there was no breading but they weren't hot (and we got the 2nd from the hottest sauce). We ordered a philly sandwich to share and it was so so. It filled the void in my stomach and that was about it. And, as far as the waitresses go, I think Hubby and I decided there were only two truly hot ones in the bunch.

@kallileigh is that your real name? it's got a gorgeous ring to it.

Nope, not my real name. It's part of my maiden name and my middle name smushed together. Maybe it'll be my new fake name for Vegas. ;)

Mmm... those wings by your place... sooo good.
I can't understand how a place (in Vegas in this day and age) can serve such crap food. I understand it's Hooters, but come on! Throw some sauce on those bad boys!

The food here is ok---I mean you there are better choices in Vegas for sure. I do love their new ultimate Texas Holdem video game...this is the only place I've seen it and I would definitely go back and play.

I can't believe someone went to Hooters for the food. Whoever wrote this review needs to get out of the house more often... That said, however, this Hooters does not have the best looking girls. There are many others around the country far better. But the food is always the same.

The thing that bugs me about the Hooters inside the Hooters Hotel and Casino is that is closes at something like 10 or 11 on should be the 24 hour a day hot spot in that joint..the food is ok..I have a Hooters Mastercard so I use it there for the points value..but I expected hotter girls and a larger space...
