Hooters Opens Pattaya Branch On Beach Rd

Recommended Posts

Getting a lot of bad reviews on their Facebook page.

Some are trying to defend the place with the old teething problems line and give it time.

Photo taken from Breakfast Club Pattaya's Facebook page.

500 baht for this.

Pretty difficult to charge that cash when you can buy Thai market food for 40 Baht. It's not a unique product. Anybody can make a burger.

Ah but it's a global brand so you are expected to pay that little bit more. You are also paying for the experience, not exactly sure what that experience is but hay ho.

If a global brand is the same as the photo I posted then that global brand isn't up to much.

Then how come it doesn't cost 500 Baht for a KFC chicken burger. That's a global brand. :fun:

Plucked if I know.

Maybe if the staff wear tight shorts and t-shirts they can charge 500 baht.

I'd pay 500 for a decent burger in Patts, don't ever remember having a decent burger there. Actually those mini burgers in secrets are quite tasty....mmm.

According to some posts I have seen on Facebook, the place doesn't even have air conditioning, WTF, 500 baht for a sad looking burger in a place with no AC. Whoever made that design decision should be fired but they do have air curtains and fans :question:

Anyway doubt I will ever set foot in the place, better food in Pattaya and if I want to see birds then I will go to the gogos. If I want a burger then I will stick with Carl's Jr.

Five guys chain...

Means nothing to me. I mean what defines a god burger? Is it 20%fat and 80% meat, or 40% meat and 20% fat and 40% other things? Also the extras, onions, lettuce, gherkin, tomato, pineapple, beetroot, egg, cheese, mustard, tom sauce, mayo?

500B for some minced meat, no matter how good the minced meat is, is absolute bollocks.

Yeah, well I'm not going to spend time making you look like a cnut, but if your life's experiences of good burgers revolves around one restaurant chain, then your life experiences are nish.

Burger and chips from Tavern @ Amari Orchid, I believe the price was 390 baht.

Now if I was to choose where to go just based on a photo I had seen then I know where I would be going.

kind of place I ll probably go once .

Pretty much everyone will go once, the busloads will go there once, that's enough custom for them to turn a profit at these prices.

Regarding burgers I like the ones at Patrick's.

Good points.

I have been in Hooters in Prague and the States, it is an experience and not necessarily for the food. People will go, even if once, and I expect it will survive.

It can not be compared with a 40 baht noodle shop, it is in a completely different market. Those complaining should stick to the noodle shops.

I am sure the Hilton Brand and other branded establishments such as TGIF etc are happy for the noodle boys to stay away. I expect Hooters has a similar thought process.

I will probably pop in and might even buy a burger or a beer, the only way to give a critique.

If it is any good I will say so, if not then again I will say so. They have a target audience, it just may not be many on here.

After all it is just another facet of Pattaya which people feel the need to deride, may be even scared of as their beloved city gets hijacked by the new tourist.

Actually I was taking the piss with my comments, however on a serious note I wouldn't class going to Hooters as an experience, a novelty yes but not an experience.

Now many are saying they are having teething problems and to give it time, this is a global brand so they should be getting it right from the start. From some of the reviews I have been reading many have said the service and food wasn't up to much, not what you want when you are targeting an audience.

That looks a pretty decent burger, much better than was in the photo from Hooters

I had some great burgers in Pattaya, such as in Bobs BBQ, though I usually don't order them as they make rather a bar snack than a meal.

Some pics were taken 3 years ago and they might not be available anymore. None of them was over 300 Bt as far as I remember.

Route CC in Soi Siam Country Club:

The girls were let's say more approachable then the Hooters girls.

Aroi: nice enough

Blue Olive. The burgers are made from Black Angus beef, price between 230 and 280 Bt. Beef is 150 g, Hooters might have 250 g but that would be too much for me anyway.

Had a chickenburger in Huay Yai tonight in a bar that serves Thai food and some farang snacks. 120 Bt.

post-111-0-94009800-1451830726_thumb.jpg

Sometimes I cook my own burger. Cost me maybe 60 Baht.

The hOOters nearest me has all-you-can eat specials on the wings a couple of nights/week.

During the holidays, the specials were all day long, but they're usually after 6pm.

Some real stunners working in there, and to be honest I don't really talk with them enough to know if they have the MSDS attitude or not.

Good effort how many Big Macs can you do ? Pal of mine can do 5

I usually get two and take some of the extra buns off to make one burger out of it. I've done the same with Whoppers.

I'm not much for eating a lot of bread, which is why I like the wings.

I couldn't finish the burger at Bob's BBQ when I tried their challenge several years ago. They were right beside the Rockhouse back then.

They had a burger called the Wagon Wheel and it was massive. The deal was, if you ate it all, including the sides, you'd get it for free.

I finished the burger, and the fries, but was gagging on the bun.

I found out later the way to beat the bun is to soak it in your water glass, then it doesn't fill you up nearly as much.
