June 15, 2023 (press release) –


Guests of Hooters, the original wing joint, and fans of golf legend and Hooters ambassador John Daly will have cause to celebrate this summer with new limited time offers including  , an iconic frankfurter -- and in honor of his championship victories, customers will enjoy “making it a Double Major.”

John Daly’s Big John Build Your Own Dog is one-of-a-kind hot dog offered exclusively at Hooters: a grilled one quarter-pound beef Hebrew National hot dog smothered in toppings and served on a buttered and toasted New England-style split top roll, with your choice of waffle or curly fries, for the price point of $8.99. Top the hot dog with chili, shredded cheddar and diced onions, and it’s a Big John Chili Cheese Dog for $9.99. But why stop at one? Customers will have the ability to “make it a Double Major” by adding a second  for $4.99.

John Daly’s limited-time special menu marks the return of two other favorites, requested by customers and by beloved by Hooters’ brand ambassador himself: Hooters Buffalo Chicken Dip and Hooters Funnel Fries.

Hooters Buffalo Chicken Dip includes tender, shredded chicken, spicy Buffalo sauce and creamy melted cheese – topped with your choice of ranch or bleu cheese, served with warm seasoned tortilla chips for dipping. This encore menu item is $9.29.

Hooters Funnel Fries are a sweet appetizer, shareable snack or satisfying dessert that “dips like a fry but tastes like a carnival.” Dough is fried to perfection, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and served with a chocolate or raspberry dipping sauce. Hooters Funnel Fries are $6.99.

“John Daly and Hooters continue to be the perfect match. Our guests can look forward to seeing some of John’s favorite foods in select North American Hooters restaurants this summer,” said Hooters Chief Marketing Officer Bruce Skala.

Professional golfer John Daly has won a total of five PGA Tour events in his career including the 1991 PGA Championship and the British Open in 1995. In addition to being a Hooters social media influencer and spokesperson, Daly sports Hooters branded apparel and uses a Hooters orange golf bag with the retro Hooters logo on the PGA Tour Champions circuit.
