Actually, I've heard it's open today.  I'm expecting a more redneck Hooters.

As opposed to the fancy dress-up Hooters we have now.

Interesting aside.

Twin Peaks is an old gay bar in SF located where Castro meetings Market.

Sorry, I know this doesn't feed the current fantasy you guys have having.

Back to Las Montanas ....

Morbid curiosity got the better of me and my fiancee, so we went down this weekend.

My initial impression of the chain as a more redneck Hooters turned out to be correct.  The cuisine is less fried wings and more fried pork products, with things like ribs and country fried steak and ham and such.  Though it still leans heavily toward your average bar food.  The food wasn't awful, though the burger I ate contained more pepper than I ate in the last six months.  I'm guessing that's to encourage you to drink more.

The servers were cut from a different cloth than Hooters girls... they tended to have painful-looking fake bake tans and protruding pelvis bones.  Our server even had a little white nub where her right incisor should have been.  They didn't seem as flirty as Hooters, either.  Other than the girls, the decor and atmosphere was very Bass Pro lite, with little of the playful, over-the-top goofiness a restaurant named after boobs needs to have. 

I can't recommend it.

The real question, did she (and the other servers) have impressive 'peaks'??

Haha, no.  In fact there was only one that night that could be considered larger than average, and that's only if you're being generous (if that's the standard you're looking for).  Most were on the small side.

Then again, most Hooters girls are pretty average-sized.

Erm, not that I notice such things.  It's about the food!  I swear!
