Tallywackers, Male Version of Hooters Coming to Dallas


Thanks to my friend, Kathleen who shared the story with me yesterday. Although I’m about a 10-hour drive away from Dallas, I wanted to share this. A couple of friends and I joked about opening a Tallywackers type restaurant in El Paso sometime back. Who knows it may still happen someday. If not, here’s to hoping Tallywackers comes to El Paso one day. If men can have Hooters, Tilted Kilt and Twin Peaks in El Paso, I think it’s only fair that women and gay males also have a place to hang out. Women are sometimes forced (or not) to go to the male restaurants with loved ones. I hope the Tallywackers’ food and drink specials will be good unlike the restaurants for males. It’s sad Hooters can get away with such mediocre food just because some of the women are attractive. I’ve never been to Tilted Kilt or Twin Peaks.

E News Online and other national magazines reported Tallywackers is opening its first restaurant in Dallas’ Oak Lawn neighborhood in May. Oak Lawn is known as a gayborhood. E News found out about the restaurant opening from a help wanted ad they encountered on Craigslist. Tallywackers held interviews last Saturday for bartenders, cooks, bus boys and hosts.

The bar type restaurant will serve pizza, pasta and hot dogs. There’s no word yet if wings will be served. Live entertainment will also take place. The staff of men will be dressed in towels. Tallywackers seems to already be a huge hit on Facebook. Their page has more than 11,000 likes. I have to give Tallywackers credit for that creative name ;).


  1. Really? I guess you do what you have to do in order to survive? ? These guys stole my idea ha ha. Not really. I think I’d like to go someday though. Maybe after I go to a Cowboys game I’ll go.

  2. No! Is this for real? lol. I mean yes women should have a place comparable to Hooters. I’ve been to Tilted Kilt and it’s a bunch of girls in mini skirt kilts and white half shirts. I don’t know, it really doesn’t bother me. Actually I think women are far worse when it comes objectifying to men lol, I’ve been to a Men’s Revue for a bachelorette party once, and man are those women crazy!

  3. Well, I don’t like their wings, but I know people who do. Their desserts are the fancy kind, not made there at the restaurant, like chocolate cheesecake. And I once worked at Rick’s Cabaret as a waitress, and we wore more clothing than the waitresses at Hooters. I also visited the one male strip club they used to have in Houston for a bachelorette party — I still have the pictures. It’s really more for gay people, as all the dancers were gay… Which didn’t bother me, as they were all good dancers. 🙂

  4. You think so? I don’t like any of their food, not even their famous wings. The only thing I liked a little bit were the fried pickles. I’ve gone to two different locations and their food is lousy. I got a hamburger on one occasion and it was soggy. The wings just tasted ordinary, nothing special, like the frozen ones you buy at the grocery store. Come to think of it, they probably are! Ha ha I don’t think it’s as bad as a strip club. But hey it might as well start becoming more equal for women and gays.

  5. They have good desserts at Hooters, and lots of people love their wings. But really, it’s like walking into a strip club — the waitresses are almost naked. I asked one of them, do you mind dressing like that for work? With a big smile, she said “not at all” (but honestly, she didn’t seem that smart). And I guess if I had a body like hers, I might not mind either… Scratch that, I would mind, unless I was working as a nude model for a famous artist.
