Hooters

Hooters is a restaurant whose waiting staff are primarily voluptuous young women, usually referred to simply as "Hooter Girls," whose revealing outfits and sex appeal are played up and are a primary component of the company's image. The Hooters name is a double entendre referring to both its owl logo, a bird known for its "hooting" calls, as well as an American slang term for female breasts.

The menu includes hamburgers and other sandwiches, steaks, seafood entrees, appetizers, and the restaurant's specialty, chicken wings. Almost all Hooters restaurants hold alcoholic beverage licenses to sell beer and wine, and, where local permits allow, a full liquor bar. Other offerings for sale include Hooters T-shirts, sweatshirts, and various souvenirs and curios.
