Quietly, without tight tank tops or orange shorts in Chicago’s suburbs, Hooters has opened up the first of what could be a new chain of fast-casual restaurants. Hoots, which offers counter service and a full bar, is now open in Cicero. The spin-off serves fewer items than the original Hooters, but the menu still centers on the chain’s familiar breaded chicken wings.
The food comes in containers that fast-food aficionados would be familiar with, as Hoots is positioning itself to handle massive to-go orders to fill man caves and basements with Buffalo shrimp and buckets of wings for sports-watching and other domestic activities. Domestic draft beer, as well as sangria and margaritas, are also available.
