A Visit to Hooters & a Review

Ξ May 28th, 2006 | → 4 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Food, Humor, Maria Luisa |


I have never been to a Hooters Restaurant. There is no reason for this… just never did. Yesterday though, ML, friends Beverly and her husband Juan Carlos and I went to the Hooters in Escazu. Generally, I avoid the restaurants in Escazu and Santa Ana as they are just horribly overpriced, but ML wanted a salad and to see what all the fuss was about at Hooters, so off we went.

Our waitress represented the average Hooters wait person and saying that, it was clear that this chain was named Hooters for a reason. I also discovered just how easy it is for a person to regress… regardless of how well trained they are… or thought they were.

I lived in the USA for many years, and of course, being a sensitive male person… that is sensitive to the feelings and sensibilities of female type persons… I knew that modern female persons are somewhat uncomfortable when male persons address the area of their chest in conversation instead of the more appropriate face area, preferable the eyes.

Nevertheless, as our waitress person approached the table, I found that I had regressed to the approximate age of 15. This was evidenced by my enthusiastic greeting to this young lady (the greeting being addressed to her hooters chest area), and my clever Spanish salutation, “Hola! ¿Cómo estan? ” the use of which instantly netted me a smack on my head from Maria.

Now for you non Spanish speakers, the verb I used, “estan” is used when you are greeting more than one person i.e ¿Cómo estan ustedes? means “how are you?” (in the plural). It is NOT used when greeting just one person. Thus, my addressing her chest as ¿Cómo estan? was probably not in Gloria Steinem’s book on sensitive male behavior and resulted in the head smack.

OK, so let’s discuss the food! I had a Cobb salad, and it was small, overpriced and tasted OK. We spent $80.00 for four people for lunch. JC got his picture taken with the waitress person.

This ends our review of Hooters, and we hope you’ll (plural) all come again!

    I went to C.R. a couple of years ago and I loved it. I plan on retiring there in the nex’t year or so. I hope to find a wonderful woman and start a beautiful family and live happily ever after. Sincerely: Angel

    Ok, that made my day.

    (If you were in North Carolina, USA, you would use:

    “How all y’all doin’?”, being the plural of the singular “y’all”…

    I just returned from Costa Rica and was blowin away by the beauty of the country and it’s women.

    Being a male chauvinist bachelor and 49, and I’m not quite so I loved HOOTERS!! And in my humble opinion, the women are topps over the waitresses in the US.

    They are much more friendly and outgoing and don’t seem to mind that male attention is being paid more to their chests than their eyes. Though I have to say that my waitress had incredible eyes as well.

    I had the crab, which was pricey for Costa Rica, but it was good, and I would put it against any other HOOTER in the US.

    Look forward to going back in September of this year. And yes, as with many others, I looking to move down there.
