It seems I was the first to comment, but other men followed my lead. Three people liked my comment. I deleted the names of the other posters for privacy reasons.

Male 1: you could even say that Hooters does well in the US where most of the women are obese and lard asses. Here in Budapest where there are pretty girls everywhere it will not be so easy.

Male 2: Ahh, come on. It’s all good fun with some cheeky on the side. Was there last night and it was great not to mention being a delightfully tacky yet unrefined daisy duke with a serving tray Americana evening. This import is what this city need…See More

Male 1: fine but many American franchises dont work here. I remember Wendys, Dunkin Donuts, Remax, Dairy Queen and many more have tried and failed.

Ryan James Yes, let’s exploit women for cheeky fun. How about a jock strap bar for the women with the men hanging out their goods? That would certainly be entertaining for the hen parties.

Male 1: Ryan, people vote with their feet. I can imagine it will do well with guys who cannot get pretty girls and have to pay to talk to them.

Male 1: Yep, you understand my point fully….in America you can believe in tiny ninja warriors who hide in vaginas and lie in wait for bad people’s sperm. (Bill Maher) and Todd Akin is a creationist (believes in Adam and Eve) and even sits on the Science Committee in Congress…..you have to hand it to the Americans they are one sandwich short of a picnic

I don’t think that any of these men would be proud to bring their family and friends in to Hooter’s if their daughter or niece were working there as a waitress.
What I find truly disappointing is that no women weighed in on the issue.
