Yes you can call it a Hooter's knock off, but I think they do a much better job then hooters. The wings are just as good if not better, they carry the full bar, and the service is much friendlier. You can also catch some good specials here.
Despite some obvious similarities to a certain national chain Winghouse is hands down the best. Full liquor bar, friendlier girls, better food... The grouper sandwhich is the best in the Tampa Bay area which is really saying something.
