Dallas is now home to the world’s first all-male version of Hooters, and it’s called Tallywackers. Somehow, in a culture that objectifies everything to the point where we think electronic gadgets are sexy, a restaurant like this has never been tried before.
The Magic Mike-style restaurant comes from the mind of bar owner and Dallas businessman Rodney Duke. As legend has it, in 2005 Rodney was enjoying some of Hooters’ underwhelming food when he thought to himself the same you’ve probably though before, “Why is there not a male equivalent?”
But instead of leaving his question unanswered, Mr. Duke answered it himself. Ten years later, and the first Tallywackers is now open in Dallas’s Oak Lawn neighborhood.
And of course the MENu has a massive hot dog called the “Tallywacker,” as well as the “S&M Burger” and the “Famous Flamer,” which is just a spicy burger.
But unlike Hooters where you’re given a waitress, at Tallywackers you are asked to choose which waiter you would like to serve you. That’s why Rodney took to Craigslist to find only the best.
“We want to hire a wide variety of men,” he said. “Everyone has a different type. The younger ones, the older ones, the muscular ones, the not-so-muscular ones. We want to have eye candy for everyone.”
Now if only they’d open one of these for seafood and call it Long Dong Silvers.
