The famous Hooters sports bar had its humble beginnings in Clearwater and is known for both its spicy wings and attractive waitresses. Even though the creator of the secret wing sauce is said to have kept the recipe in a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist, there is more to the menu than just great wings. Hooters also offers ribs, sandwiches, seafood and burgers, as well as a small dessert menu. You can quench your thirst with a signature cocktail, beer or wine and even take home a Hooters Girl Glass. With a menu like this, you might forget all about the game.
