This year on Memorial Day, Hooters is offering a special menu and discounts on food for veterans and active-duty military personnel. Memorial Day is a holiday to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military and occurs on Monday, May 25 this year.
Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, many Americans won’t be hosting their usual big Memorial Day barbeque parties or cookouts, so restaurants are stepping up to offer deals on takeout and delivery services.
There are still ways to celebrate the unofficial kickoff to the summer, though; there’s still the possibility of sitting down for a nice meal outdoors or just sitting outside with a drink.

The good times are coming back and safety is our #1 priority! 🎉 We’re taking measures to ensure everyone stays safe. We’ll have social distancing in place for guests and team members, hourly disinfecting throughout the restaurant, and Hooters Girls will be outfitted with masks and regularly changing disposable gloves between each interaction. And if you’re still not quite comfortable enough to come dine with us, we still have curbside & delivery available at many locations!
Hooters has recently begun opening locations for dine-in where stay-at-home measures have been lifted. This includes more than 150 restaurants nationwide in accordance with state and local mandates and guidelines. They will also continue to offer takeout, curbside and delivery options.
The procedures that they have put in place include maintaining six feet of distance between all people, limiting the number of guests into restaurants following state and local occupancy requirements, increased cleaning and sanitation throughout the restaurant including hourly wipedowns of high contact areas and nightly deep cleanings.
They are also requiring all team members wash their hands at least once every 30 minutes or more when needed, requiring team members to wear gloves and face coverings at all times with gloves being replaced after each guest interaction and conducting daily team member wellness screenings including temperature checks.
