Hooters in Manila? Yes/No. The Hooters Sports Bar & Restaurant that opened in Pasay City along Diosdado Macapagal was just trying to be funny. It tries to capitalize on the Hooters name until the real Hooters opens in the Fort by year 2008.
” HOOTERS, the American restaurant made famous by its buxomy beautiful babes, will be opening its first outlet in the Philippines at The Fort entertainment strip in Taguig City. This was confirmed by Kaz Endo, managing director and partner of Paradise Wings Llp., a Guam-based company which owns the Hooters franchise for Guam and Asia, including the Philippines…construction is ongoing at the restaurant, which will open its doors to the public by February 2008. ” (Coming soon at The Fort: the Hooters By Ma. Stella F. Arnaldo BusinessMirror)
Spanx, Manila Boy is very excited in his blog post: HOOTERS!!! which represent the sentiments of most Filipino men:
“The CHICKEN WINGS will make me very happy. I mean, really… just the wings!!! “
I’m not sure if Market Manila is equally excited to hear that the Hooter’s Buffalo Chicken Wings will now be available in Manila! Manila’s restaurant scene is getting hotter. I will bet that Hooters Manila will be a lot better than the Hooters Singapore version.
I am excited, are you?

Sana next they’d bring here IHOP naman. =)
Cool! We really loved the chicken wings.
I wonder how some ‘conservative’ folks would react though. Although Hooters is really just another restaurant (we saw families with young kids having dinner there there while we were in Austin), some people would surely object.
eh let them object. if they don’t like seeing buxomy girls serving food on rollerskates, they don’t have to eat there anyway.
Yup can definitely see fireworks coming from those uptight “concerned citizens/civil society”… If I remember correctly there was a Hooters copycat before at the Pan Pacific Hotel named Shooters(?) but that didn’t pan out…
Great!! Give me them chicken wings and I’m sure I’ll forget that my husband will probably be drooling over those other chickens…hahaha 🙂
there’s a hooters up the street from my condo. on mondays, it’s all you can eat wings for $9.99.
“The CHICKEN WINGS will make me very happy. I mean, really… just the wings!!! ”
sa totoo lang.
payag daw si rache boys night out tayo dun with aidan. woohooo!!!
It’s march already. where the hell is the Hooters resto!?!
naalala ko yung hooters i was 11 years old 2004 nakapasok kame nang mga bestfriend ko..kumain kame dun sa states sasarap ng mga menu! i really missed hooters!
hooters, phil? yuck! the service is poor, our order was sent to another table with the same order, their grilled fish is salty, burgers are bland, margarita tasted more of water than liquor. servings are small (not the same size as in the menu) unlike chilis burgoo fridays italliannis gumbo. receptionis? walang ginawa kundi magkuhaan ng pics, price? expensive. you don’t get what u paid for.
i give them a 60% grading.
i won’t go back there, eating there was just for curiosity.
after complaining abt their service, they gave us a coupon for a free dessert which we could avail on our next visit. we left the coupons on the table after paying, we didn’t give tips, para que? di ka nga satisfied sa service eh. we won’t go back there again.
try chilis margarita, it will giv u a kick, try their burgers too, very juicy unlike hooters w/c is dry (tuyo).
as i analyze it, hooters franchisee in phil compromised their quality over profit.
well, this is just my comment n opinion. try it urself. oo nga pala, our bill was 9thousand pero di kami nasayahan.
ok lang to pay as much as 15 thou basta ba happy ang tummy, di ba?
HOOTERS PHIL??? WALANG KWENTA!!!! SOBRANG TAGAL NG SERVICE, ALMOST AN HOUR BAGO DUMATING UNG CHICKEN WINGS, FRIES AND BURGER NA INORDER NAMIN, UNG BURGER NA SINERVE SAMIN HINDE NA MAINIT AND SOBRANG BLAND, UNG MGA WAITRES NOT THAT FRIENDLY,HINDE WORTH IT YUNG MONEY MO PAG KUMAIN KA NG HOOTERS, THE FOOD??? QUANTITY CONTROL SILA NOT QUALITY CONTROL. ISA LANG YUNG GOOD SA KANILA THE UNIQUE AMBIANCE, BUT THE SERVICE , FOOD AND STAFF WAS VERY VERY VERY POOR!!!! TRY IT YOUR SELF TO BELIEVE.
WOW! Filipinos lambasting yet again another new franchise in the market! Hooters came to the Philippines with the prospect of getting a share of customers well known for them around the world. It’s their first time so you expect the problems showing up just like everything new.
Some idiot says here that it’s a fake Hooters? What in tarnation! It’s a franchise you cannot just copy as you will get sued for breach of copyright. The Fort should be bigger and different and that’s something to look forward to as this first one is located inside a mall. What do you expect?
As to the Hooters girls, well, give them a chance to get the prettier ones later. Of course with our backward culture of conservatism and religious fanaticism, you will expect the less fortunate to grab the opportunity of having a job even to the point of losing their decency as what Hooters is about. If you perverts cannot tolerate it, then go to another white man’s country’s Hooters to oogle on white skin.
It makes me cringe reading comments by idiots who shoot their mouths off without using their brain.
how ignorant can people get the first time they step into a new place like this !!!!!!! LOL !!! daaamn !! hahahaha!
well for me,
when i went there with friends all i can say is that hooters phil is just the same with the hooters abroad, we had a great time, well, yeah!! for the girls no white girls and Double D bussoms, but.. theres lot’s cute girls working there defineatly!!,… but if you say that they’re not friendly, DAMMMN,… maybe your the one who’s got the problem, try shining up a smile and stop hating when your approached/surrounded by any person or if you would go to PUBLIC PLACE, you know know what i mean ?!?! ARE YOU THAT FREAKING UGLY TO BE THAT MUCH OF A HATER AND AN IGNORANT BASTARD ?!?! all i notice from the post you made was all HATE HATE HATE… maan, you must be really hungry that time,.. you should have just gone to jollibee and bought your self a dozen of em burgers over there or maybe you should have just went to see manong fish ball and go take a chomp on his balls for the hurry……. LOL !!! curiousity is such a bitch aint it ?!? tried it once?!!? just because they didnt gave you that much attention i guess~??~….. errrr … bitch you psycho ^_^
but for the filipino peeps any smooth ambience will be the perfect spot to chill, even if it comes pricy, decent fun of course since it’s in a resto bar like hooters… my rating for hooters that will be a 90% for everything 10% missing for the white girls and the double D’s… and this ..I.. o(0_o)o ..I.. for the ignorant bastards who doesnt know what the fuck they’re talking bout…..
How can I apply if ever it will open in Manila, coz, I’m a cebuana.
