Hooters Opens First Fast-Casual Hoots in Chicago Suburbs — Without the Orange Shorts

Men work there, too

The first Hoots, from Hooters, is open in Chicago’s suburbs.

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.
