The limited service concept, Hoots, which is serving a condensed menu comprised of Hooters’ most popular dishes, opened Wednesday at 2201-D S. Cicero Ave. in Chicago.

Inspired by the recent growth of the fast-casual restaurant format, the enduring popularity of Hooters’ Nearly World Famous Chicken Wings, and a significant increase in the amount of to-go orders, Hooters is bringing delicious food to even the most time-starved people. Hoots will be serving Hooters fan favorites like Fried Pickles, Hooters’ Nearly World Famous Chicken Wings (Always Fresh Never Frozen), Alaskan Snow Crab Legs and the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. Hoots will also be featuring Buffalo Shrimp, 10 or 20 pieces of fried shrimp shaken in the customers’ favorite wing sauce. This is guaranteed to be a real crowd pleaser.

Hoots has 75 seats including a bar area, complete with beer, cocktails and sangria, where customers can dine-in (with counter service) or hangout and have a drink or watch a game while waiting for their takeout order.
