Ok, we didn’t just stop in, we actually did a Google search (“Ok, Google, navigate me to the nearest Hooters”) and ended up here for lunch.

Much better since they updated this location! We visit often & the manager is present & walks around asking everyone how their doing. The mahi fish tacos are really good!
