How many carbs at Hooters? (Serious wing question inside)

Went to Hooters. Had the 20 wing deal. The wings are smaller than I remember....Is this a bad move?

Anyhow - I got them naked with 1/2 Lemon Pepper, 1/2 Chesapeake. I was a bit nervous about the Chesapeake - thought it might be some sort of fishy flavor, but they were AWESOME! Almost made me forget about the scenery.....

Tomorrow they have "all you can eat wings Tuesday". Am I sabotaging myself here?

To be 100% clear - I ordered the wings naked. Did not get any dip. Only had 2 celery stalks.

If there was a wing place that didn't charge an arm and a leg (or a wing and a leg - I'm talking to you BWW!) that was more family friendly I would certainly go there. And before anyone tells me I should just make them at home - I travel for work quite a bit and most Marriotts frown on deep-frying in the room. Most of the time when I travel I get a steak at a greasy spoon - along with a lettuce salad with oil and vinegar.

Thoughts?

Don't they have their nutrition info on their website? It's hard to find a big chain restaurant that doesn't nowadays. When I have time, or am in front of the TV, I go to the sites of any restaurant I might visit that has a menu online, and add the nutrition data of all the "good choices" into my iPhone app. That helps me make good choices when I'm out and about. I'm not a huge chain restaurant person, but I go sometimes, often enough for it to be worth my while.

I've never been there, but I've heard the wings are tasty.

As long as they aren't breaded, deep fried wings are a good low carb choice when eating out (or at home!), as long as you are careful about what sauce or seasoning you choose, which you were.

First of all SO GLAD TO SEE YOU AGAIN!!!!! I have missed all of your funny posts! Sadly, I have moved from socal to the beautiful PNW, so if you ever move back to Cali...well, I will not be there to greet you.

I think the wings are probably just fine nekkid. Watch out for excess sodium (that would be my only caution next to watching out for hidden sugar in the seasonings). Other than that, you have done fine! Enjoy the food (and scenery)!

back, Dude!!!

Naked wings should not have carbs. Just ask if they are coated or seasoned.

So sorry you HAVE to go to Hooters when you travel.
