Complaint Department : Atlrainman Bitches About Our Hooters Review

We all know Atltrainman, RedDogAtl, Clifford - or whatever handle he uses on nearly every Vegas site on the internets - as someone who has strong opinions about stuff. Well, Cliff sent us his opinion on Miss Monkay's review of Hooter's restaurant at Hooter's Casino. Apparently he had some technological problems with posting it via the comments thingy so we're going to post it here so everyone can see what Cliff has to say about our Hooters review.

Take it away Cliff:

I have tried on 5 ocasions to post a comment to your Hooters review. Each time the thing goes to 'Loading' and stays there forever and never posts the comment. Below is the comment I wish to post:

I have to take you to task on your review of Hooters. You have made several serious errors and I feel the record needs to be set straight.

First of all, people don't go to Hooters restaurant for the food. The guys go to see young women in t-shirts and shorts that are two sizes too small for them. Women go there to be seen by the guys or if they are Lesbos for the same reason as guys. Food is just the excuse to be at a Hooters restaurant.

Now anyone that has every purchased Wings at a restaurant knows that they come one of two ways. They either come breaded or they come "Naked" or non-breaded. By default Hooters serves their Wings breaded but a special order can be placed and the Wings can be served Naked if requested. It is up to the customer to know what they are ordering and order what they want.

As for the celery, carrot sticks, and blue cheese I can agree that they should come with the Wings but since some people only want the blue cheese and not the other stuff, why should they have to pay for it. After all I also believe all sit down casual dining restaurants ought to include a salad with a meal but there is a large percentage of them that charge extra for the salad and I don't see you bitching about that.

Now for your complaint about the hotness of the wings, what level wings did you order? Hooters offers their Wings tossed in your choice of mild, medium, hot, 3 mile island, 911 or two other non-hot sauces. If you don't specify a sauce they will bring you mild by default. I am sure that if you had eaten the 3 mile island or 911 tossed you would have complained that the Wings were too hot. Again it is up to the customer to order the proper sauce.

Lastly your statement that it would take an hour just to find a restaurant in the MGM across the street is just plain wrong. If you had taken the pedestrian bridge from the Tropicana across the street to the MGM and then entered the MGM, upon going down the stairs to the Casino level you would find the Rainforest Cafe Restaurant on your immediate left. It is much closer to the Tropicana's casino than the Hooters restaurant is.

In summary, next time do your homework before going to a theme restaurant and then bashing it in a review.

Thanks Cliff for sending us your opinion. We will be posting a response to your points shortly.

Wow!

I thought Hooters was a restaurant and bar not a strip club. They seem to promote their food a lot so is it too much to ask that it at least be edible?? If you read the review closely you would have seen that Ms. Mo realized her error in thinking that the wings were "Buffalo style". I cannot believe that places serve a so-called hot wing without sauce. And to up charge for a dip is laughable.

To your last point Cliff, about the MGM restaurants, i took the point as being that the line-up to any decent restaurant at MGM would likely be an hour, especially on a Saturday night. (PS I don't consider Rainforest a decent restaurant, given the choice I would eat at Hooters as well)

I am not a "hater", I usually enjoy your contributions to all the Vegas sites I frequent, however this time I think you misread the humour in the review and perhaps you should comprehend the entire review before you bash it.

Yeah seriously.....easy killer...........

Gotta agree with everyone here Cliff... I read your comments but all I see is "blah, blah, blah". Last time I checked a review was an opinion.... in this case Ms. Mo's, I think there was a little "tongue in cheek" action goin on that you seemed to have missed. If you've ever met Chuck or Ms. Mo (I met Chuck, and can assume a lot about Ms. Mo - cause she puts up with him...) or even read their posts, it's all about the fun! Yer comments about this seem to be trying to kill said fun. Shame on you....FUN KILLER!!!

To be fair, BRD had a point. When you go to Hooters, you're not so much going for the food as you are the scenery. At first anyway. The first time I went there (well, first few times) I didn't like the food much at all. After going there fairly frequently, I started to understand what my buddies saw in the place (aside from the obvious.) I found the style and hotness of wings and shrimp that I really liked. Now, it's almost like a craving.

Might I suggest that you make a trip back to Hooters (knowing what you're getting in to this time) and order 20 wings (all drums if you want), naked, in 3 Mile Island sauce. Oh, and a side of fries.

When you get your food, take the lemon wedge out of the water and squeeze it over your fries. Eat your wings (sans=dressing. Blue cheese/ranch for wings are like training wheels) and fries, drink your beer, and grab a few extra wetnaps on the way out for better 'clean up' later.

Dammit! Now I want some wings!

@sprunt thanks for the hoots strategy options. i'm not sure if life is long enough for there to be a return engagement there for me.... at least in Vegas. there's already a hundred other joints higher on the list to try before we go back again.

Taking someone to "task" on a Hooters review? Lighten up! We're just here for to have fun. This is not bettercuisinereviewingetiquette.com.

Hooters is good for two things: Wings and Boobs. I havent had the chance to visit the Strip location, but I would figure they would want to build a free-standing store somewhere else on the strip than where it is currently. Cliff, buddy, you also need to lighten up. Parody and humor is what makes this site fun to read, if you want facts and impersonable materials, theres always vegas.com

Chuck, thanks for posting my comments. Although I thought you would add them to the bottom of the review comments and not as a news item.

To the people who told me to 'lighten-up": Hey someone has to defend the honor of the ladies in the orange short shorts.
