Why You Should Never Eat The Wings At Hooters

I’ve had a ton of shitty jobs.  And during the course of doing all those shitty jobs, I’ve compiled quite a few stories.  The other day I decided to share one of those stories with my co-workers, and when I was finished, they looked at me disgusted for a few moments, and one of them said "That’s messed up, dude.  The world needs to know that." 
When I was 19, a Hooters opened up two blocks from where I lived.  My roommate and I needed a job, and also had penises, so we decided to apply as cooks there.  It was basically us, and 8 hispanic guys that didn’t speak a word of english, or have any clue what Hooters was.  I know this because during our orientation, which was the ten of us and 75 girls, one of them leaned over to me and asked, "Why there is much pussy?"  When I explained best I could that that was the theme of the restaurant, he turned to the other seven dudes, translated it into Spanish, and then collectively they all went, "Aaaah."  Then there was silence for a second and then one of them went "estabien guey!" and they started high-fiving each other.
Anyway, about a few months into it, I realized that it wasn’t that awesome of a job.  Hooters is a lot like a Michael Bay movie. It’s loud, everybody in it is stupid and you spend most of your time hoping you’re going to see someone’s titties…but you never do. 
My job was to work the fryer.  Basically I’d go get wings from the walk-in fridge,  take them out front, batter them, flour them, then dump them in the fryer. 

You may say this job was so easy a retarded person could do it.  You have no idea how right you are, because the other "fryer" guy that worked alongside me had been hit by a car a few years before and was dropped off at our work by a special bus each day. 
So one day I pull the wings out, and they’re green and nasty, and smelled like a homeless dude that had (for some reason) rolled around in paprika.  Sort of spicy and sour.  So I go to throw them away and all of a sudden I hear, "WHOAAAA Buuuuuddddy.  Watcha doin’ J?"  I turn around and it was my manager, who was actually a really good guy, but a stickler about food costs.  So I go, "The wings are rotten," then I make the homeless comparison I just made to you, to him, and he goes, "Let me show you a little something I learned in trenches."  He grabs a white bucket, like this one:
And he fills it with water, about half way.  Then he dumps the rotten wings into the water.  Then he looks at me and he goes, "Here’s the magic."  He grabs a bottle of bleach from the supply closet, and he pours a cap full of it, and dumps that cap into the water, with the wings.  Then he grabs a wooden spoon and he stirs the wings, like a witch stirring a secret spell.  Then he looks at me and goes "The bleach kills the smell, and then the fryer kills everything else."  Then he went to the front, battered, fried, and served those wings.

    If you don’t put the wings in the flour, then they are considered ‘Naked’ but yes, drop how ever many wings you need, wait till floating in the fryer, sauce of choice.

    They don’t batter/bread the wings in Buffalo, asshole.
    Any place that does batter them, is a chain restaurant out of another area.

    I’ve lived in Buffalo for over 35 years and have had wings from all different kinds of restaurants. So kindly know what you’re talking about before you start talking out of your ass, you dumb cunt.

    While I’m not the same anon who posted L.A. sucks, I’d like to throw my 2 cents in.

    The city itself, doesn’t suck.
    The location doesn’t suck.

    What does make it suck are the egotistical residents that think they are owed something because they live in that city.
    The fact that they are shallow, materialistic and totally unable to understand anything that doesn’t involve them.
    The fact that the majority of the population uses the expression “I’m from L.A.” like it will make ladies cream their knickers and men wet themselves.

    The fact that the assholes who are so stuck on what area code you live in that they’ll buy cell phones in the O.C. to get chicks.
    Or the retards that thrive on the “L.A. Lifestyle” and paying $600,000 for a house that’s $75k in other markets.

    Oh, and the fact that most of the people in L.A. that say “Hey, I’m from L.A.” are batshit crazy.

    Just because you live in L.A. doesn’t mean you’re owed anything. It doesn’t mean that you’re special. If you think it does, you need a punch to the baby maker.

    Ugh, unfortunately practices like this aren’t just at Hooters, they are at many restaurants that many of you have eaten in. I personally never want to know what the nastiest thing I’ve ever been served in a restaurant, but I know it was something bad just from the odds of it happening. My girlfriend was a waitress and alot of my friends in high school and college. This is nasty as hell but still not the worst thing I’ve heard happening. You don’t want something like this happening to you? Don’t go out to eat in restaurants, doesn’t matter if its Hooters or not. I’m talking 5 star restaurants too, they are all the same, they just charge different prices for different clientel.

    You’ve done a great service by publishing this story. I wish I could say it’s going to deter me from ever eating wings at Hooters again, but then again, I live in LA. Going to a Hooters out here is like going to an Olive Garden in Italy. Just doesn’t make sense.

  16. Mad as Hell says:

    Why were the wings battered?

    I find it unbelievable that any restaurant can fuck up something as simple as wings.

    1. Put wings in fryer, wait till cooked.
    2. Take wings out of fryer and toss in large metal bowl with sauce of choice.
    3. Serve wings with blue cheese, celery, and carrots.

    How so many places can screw this up is beyond me.

I couldn’t help but laugh while telling them I’m actually from the city of Buffalo not the Wild Wings in Lansing or when they asked why I was putting Franks on the wings instead of their buffalo sauce. Damn bastards and their bastardization of the chicken wing. People who bread chiken wings should shoot themselves.

    just the idea of hooters is wrong, of course the food sucks your not there for the food your there so you can look at way young girls with almost nothing on. Your not really paying any attention to the food, grow up there using sex to sell rotten food, and you fell for it, get a grip.There are guys that are going to tell me to get a grip now, but they don’t matter there the guys who say respecting a woman by not treating other women like a piece od meat is because the girl is “jealous” not. Jealous is a word used by men who just want to get there way, sorry if some of you men can’t handle that but it’s soooooooooooo true. If you sit back and look at the food and then smell your food, and not have sex staring you in the face you would not touch the so called food. Most people eat with there eyes, but this is to much, endangering your life for a look it’s pathetic…….

    i once worked with my brother in a hotel, (he is normally very quite)one day ,one of the chefs got ticked off with a complaint from a customer so he brought the steak outside due to cameras in the kitchen,he pissed on it, spat on it, then got into his car and rolled over it and back a few times,then brought the steak back in and cooked it and sent it to the customer but before it reached the customer my brother who had been watching this and could not believe that the chef actually sent this to the customer (the customer ,who by the way,unknown to the chef was my brothers wife) stopped the waitress and took it back to the kitchen,he grabs the chef and shoves his hand into the hot fryer and makes the chef eat the steak under threat of a butchers knife,he then said if he ever saw this again he would shove the chefs head into the fryer,he then served 6 months in prison for this but said he would still do the same again,any one who does this sort of thing to a persons food should think it through,it could happen to them plus there are very angry people out there,
    (my brother for one) that you just don’t want to mess with.

    It is the company that would have to take care of this. They know there responsibilities, this issue being one of them. Many of you think this may not be a big idea, but things like the Ecoli strain O157:H7 and salmonella has killed many young children and old people because of careless mistakes such as these. Also, yes most of the bacteria will be killed off in such high heat but many times especially with careless cooks and horrible managers like these the food does not get cooked properly and it can seriously cause an outbreak of a new virus, it’s obviously happened before and it became an epidemic so if you’re still thinking that “it cannot kill you, and will only make you stronger” than that’s great for you (so you hope), not so much for others (mainly weaker immune systems). For the guy who blamed the guy who wrote this, I think you are just…stupid. This could potentially help someone in the future and it’s giving out information so it absolutely doesn’t hurt to have posted this.

    lolzzzz..that’s funny because i also worked at a hooters as a fry boy a few years back, only for 2 weeks (such a pos job btw).

I think we, as a human race, have become bit of nancies when it comes to eating. It has to be clean, it has to be fresh, it has to…ect. The truth, it has to taste good. That should be all that matters.

    While that is pretty gross, your manager has a point. You could eat those wings and (if there is enough sauce on em) you would never know the difference and you would be completely fine.

    At Subway the sandwich has to be prepared in front of the customer so no spitting but they keep the bread in plastic bins under the counter and if you are a jerk, the employee has probably wiped your bread across the dirty floor before bringing it up to the counter.

  84. Brother Z says:

    It is horrible that something like this would happen, and that the food would be served to people, but you cannot place the blame on the company. The company did not order the manager to use the rotten food, and the company certainly did not force you to comply. If you were actually concerned about health and safety, you would have spoken up or informed the FDA. You cannot tell this story and absolve yourself of responsibility by saying it’s ‘messed up’ after the fact. I don’t blame Hooters for this atrocity of food service, I blame you.

    This is a disgusting example of what goes on in chain restaurants like that.

    @Brother Z: You’re not wrong to blame the manager who bleached the wings, or the author, for allowing this to happen. You are, however, wrong for letting Hooters upper-level management off the hook. I’ve worked in 3 chain restaurants and 2 independents in the past 10 years, and I’ve seen a common practice amongst regional management and above. They don’t tell the general manager at a store to bend or break the rules, because doing so would make them complicit when it happens. What they do is set the goals unattainably high, for example, making the goal for food waste to cut it every month. Waste happens, there’s no way to cut it out completely, so there must be a point where the general manager at a store has cut it as low as it can go while staying within the rules. When upper management demands waste be cut even further than that, the GM has no choice but to break the rules and endanger the customers.

    When I worked at Burger King, things got sloppy real fast. I always worked hard and did what the rule book said, but the first night I worked till closing (which was 1 AM at the time), I got a slap in the face when it came to fast food shortcuts.
    It is true that BK flame broils everything, and since this thing is on all day long it gets really really dirty everyday. So one of the final clean ups for the night crew is to ‘clean the broiler’, which takes about 2 hours and it sucks. So at 11o’clock, the crew made about 50 whopper patties and 60 Junior whoppers, and stored them in the large plastic bins that the vegetables are in. From that point on, they are microwaved until hot.
    Later on, the crew just re-fry’s everything until they’re hot. Numerous times.

    *NO WAY* this is true…

    I’ve worked plenty of Food Service jobs putting myself through college.

    Manager’s fear an outbreak of anything that could cause the Establishment a bad name..(I worked at a Chili’s…*ANOTHER* location had an outbreak of food poison…and our location…we were required (as servers)–to Sanitize our hands every 15-minutes…the Manager literally set a Timer…and you’d not be allowed out of the kitchen (when you came through)—unless you sanitized your hands…..

    There is *NO WAY* a manager would serve rotted food…(now dropped on the floor—I can believe it…or other gross stuff that Employee’s do…but a manager…*NO WAY*…..

    Ontario, Canada, here, and would like to remind all potential tourists this summer, that the food served in the smaller country-side restaurants and cafes here, is thoroughly inspected by frequent unannounced visits by the department of Health, and is usually prepared by family raised plump and delicious Ontario girls – the clean, unamerican, wholesome variety, with a good idea of what good their futures hold! They are health conscious and educated to do things right by our extraordinarily effective community college system! They do not “go down” for the customers, and usually have boyfriends,fathers, family, and/or husbands taking great care of them! They can be compared internationally to the Swiss for cleanliness, and are well loved and respected by management. Most of them spend winters in Universities, trying to better their lot in life, and are a basic strength in the fabric of the strongest province of Canada, Ontario, proud to serve you!

    Bleach is not allowed in restaurants you idiots. While this story may be true it has more to do with a bad manager or a freak who lies then it does an entire chain of restaurants. Besides that Bleach can be toxic and is not allowed in restaurants, they use non toxic cleaners.

    If you don’t believe stuff like this happens, think again. I’ve worked in many restaurants for over 20 years and they all have their dirty, little secrets. I’ve seen food picked up off the floor and refried, pissed-off servers spitting into pizza (word to the wise, don’t piss off the person bringing your food), bugs in the kitchen, food that was served (bread, rolls, etc.) returned to the kitchen and resold to other customers (this by the owners of the restaurant), garbage racked through by the dishwashers to recover crackers and butter packets, and lots and lots of sex has taken place in every part of the building (tables, bathrooms, prep tables, etc.). After seeing all of this, when my kids have dropped food on the ground, I tell them to pick it up and eat it; unless they never eat out, they’ve eaten worse.

    I worked at Hooters for over 5 years and that stuff never happened in our store. Apparently you should have reported your manager if that really did happen. The Home Office number is usually posted outside of the office door. And I do take offense to the dumb people comment you made. I made great friends that started out as customers and they all met my daughter and my husband. Over 90% of the girls that work there are doing it to pay for school or are single mom’s doing what they need to do.

  129. hahaha says:

    Hmmm I worked at a Taco Bell as a teenager and anything that fell on the floor and we ‘didn’t’ throw it away, we were fired. I worked at a Captain D’s and there were one too many “short cuts” plus the manager was stealing money out of the register. I went out with and then quickly dumped this dude that worked at a Pizza Hut because he decided to come clean with me for the simple fact that I loved their pizza; He cut his hand pretty bad and was preparing a pizza so he decided to just let the blood drip onto the sauce, after all, he said, it was red and no one would ever know!! :barf: Then when I was out of my teens I worked at a Hooters for one whole day! It was so nasty in the kitchen, or sloppy I should say. Food falling on the floor? Big deal, pick it up and serve it. Stank chicken? So what, scrub it up real good, no one will know the difference. They’re a bunch of horny drunk men (mostly). Your best bet is to cook at home. Oh and around 98% of the girls ARE working to pay off college and are actually smart. It’s just super easy money made off of idiots who think they have a chance with a girl half their age. Sorry dudes, unless she is a disease infested skank, you won’t. So weigh the options…do you really want to take that disease home to your (also hot) and unsuspecting wife or girlfriend? Disease you ask? Well, there are always a few skanks at Hooters just like any other place. Theses few girls are the ones who are hooked on different drugs or pills and sleeps with every guy she possibly can but only to get that moron to keep coming back and giving her $50 – $100 tips. Prostitution? uh, yeah. Like I said, that’s everywhere though not just Hooters. Why did I only work one day there? When I saw what went on in the kitchen and knew that my brothers and sisters, & other family and friends would come there because I worked there, and knew they would order some of those disgusting stinky wings and other foods that were dropped or coughed on, I quit.

  136. Tool says:

    I can attest to this. I was a Hooter cook for two years while in college. When some jackass would say the wings weren’t hot enough I’d put bleach in the sauce. Then there was the guy that would piss in the pickle bucket whenever he had to open one because they were a pain in the ass to open. We would run our wings through the dishwasher every morning to get the breading off the wings that weren’t used the night before. I can go on and on. This was 16 years ago mind you. One of the guys I trained now runs the store that I worked at in St. Louis. One of the girls asked if I was the infamous “Tool’ (my nickname back then, don’t ask). Apparently my acts are now legend. So if you ever get to Hooters in Maryland Heights, MO., ask for Jeff, the manager, what “Tool’ is famous for. He just might tell you

    Once upon a time, I was working up in North Ontario, sharing a space with six of my fellow contracted workers. I and two others were heading out the door when we bumped into one of our roomies who had the day off. It was his first day in town and he decided he would be heading to Hooters later since they were having an all-you-can-eat shrimp promotion on.

    Anyhow, we put in our workday and headed home, only to find him lying prone on the couch, groaning. His skin had gone a deathly gray, and he was dashing to the bathroom every 5 minutes. We all tried to be sympathetic, but couldn’t stop laughing – after all, he had gone to Hooters to eat bottomless buckets of SHELLFISH! What did he think was gonna happen?

    I worked for a supermarket that made doughnuts and those apple fritters everyone just loves are scrap dough from wherever it falls. Then you have the glazer the big bin you glaze all the doughnuts in, they have to pick the dead flies/bugs out of the glazer every day instead of covering the bin or using fresh glaze daily. I rarely eat doughnuts unless I make them myself now.

She takes a huge handful of forks, puts them into her disgusting mouth, sucks on them a while and puts them all back. No one saw this except for me. WTF. ?????

    Shut up faggot. The word Fag is derived from the latin word Fascio which was a bundle of wood with an axe in it used to beat the fuck out of people who wouldn’t move for nobles and his divinity THE EMPEROR.

    Later it became a word simply referring to a bundle of sticks and now it’s British slang for a cigarette.

    It probably started being used as a derogatory term for homosexuals because lets face it, a big gay sausage party is basically a bundle of sticks.

    The word fag has much more in common with the word fascist than it does homosexual. So maybe he was calling you a fascist.

    You uneducated prick. Go learn about words.

    Yea the thing about the wings so damn true. My boyfriend use to be a manager at a Hooters and he had to stop his workers from doing that..a trick they learned from their previous managers. It’s soo gross, he has lots of stories like this. Nasty Shit, almost nastier than some of the girls that work at the restaurant in town….literally giving sexual favors in the parking lots. My boyfriend has like forbidden me to eat or work there. (not that i was interested anyways)

    Dude … swear that this is true?

    I have never been to Hooters and I was about to go this weekend to try the wings since everyone at work claim that they are the best. Makes me wonder if they are talking about how good the wings are or the breasts.

    I guess I’m not going there :(

    You shouldn’t eat the wings at hooters because they may have cleaned them first? I don’t understand this. Is it supposed to be a warning?

    Frankly, I’d rather have my food bleached a little bit before I eat it – doubly so for restaurant fare. Get this – the model of business means that your $20 plate of food had to cost less than $20, including the wages of the people who cook and serve it, in order for the restaurant to make a profit. How much do you think they spent on that veal cutlette? Now apply this radical, unheard-of concept to your $.25 wings. Same prep time, same server, so where is the profit coming from? The $.02 wings that you’re actually eating. And they are not $.02 because of some marvelous new chicken species that excretes fully-formed wing bones instead of eggs.
