How waitresses offering dinner and a tacky 'view' are keeping U.S. diners alive in the recession
The Daily Mail ^ | 24 June 2012

Posted on 06/27/2012 5:30:37 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Rarity: So-called breastaraunts like Twin Peaks, four waitresses pictured, are staying in top shape despite an overall decline in restaurant sales

The waitresses at Twin Peaks wear skimpy plaid tops that accentuate their chests.

In case you didn't catch the joke, the chain's logo is an image of two pointy, snow-capped mountains. And the sports bar doesn't stop there: It promises 'scenic views.'

Twin Peaks owner Randy DeWitt downplays all of that and insists that the appeal of the restaurant goes beyond the obvious. Hearty meals and a focus on making customers feel special, he says, are what really keeps them coming back.

Yeah, that’s the formula

I see they’re allowed to choose their own belts.

You might be surprised. These kinds of restaurants get lots of female customers. There’s more to it than the boobies.

Dear Lord, just get 'em to pick up the food while it's hot and before it cooks all over again under the IR lamps. Amen.

That's my standard kitchen prayer when dealing with waitresses.

If you have to rely on le grand tetons to bring in business, I understand that. But the food should be good, and the service should be great.

They are everywhere! We walked into one in Mesquite, TX and I saw the hostess and, across the room, another scantily clad
waitress and started waving my arms - “WE ARE NOT EATING HERE!” and walked out. I know they were shocked that someone would have that reaction and probably laughed - but not one thin dime of ours did they get!

I went to the hole in the wall place monday and got 2 real beef tacos and 2 shrimp tacos with the works on them with lime wedges and both red and green sauce for $6.
They were huge and delicious and I watched the old Mexican lady make them.

That’s all I need.
That and a nap.

I think those are blue eyes. But I agree. I love dark auburn hair, light green eyes, and pale soft skin. That is one of the most attractive combos imo. Another one is strawberry blond, light blue, and pale skin. Another is raven black hair, almost any color eyes, and pure white skin.

“Just gimme the f-ing tip perv, I have a family to feed. Oh, great, you brought the wife to make you look upstanding - humiliate her too.”

“I love guys with a turtle shell belly.” (c’mon, don’t be cheap now, I need money).

I see they’re allowed to choose their own belts.

Just the same, they must sew velco inside those things. (In the front.)

I disagree, 4 should be first, then 3, 2 and 1 dead last. However, if they were desperate I wouldn't turn any of them down:)

Getting back to the actual point of the article, the “breastaurant” business is proving to have some staying power during the recession which is worth noting.

I’ve always believed that the proliferation of strip clubs and now “breastaurants” is a side-effect of all the sexual harassment laws in the workplace. Most men of a certain age want to flirt with pretty girls and the girls can make good money if they are attractive and enjoy the flirting (and some clearly do).

As a general rule of thumb, the skimpier the dress, the worse the food will be but the more they are pushing alcohol not food anyway. Some feature a lot of sports on tv for the full man cave experience.

It’s all largely harmless. I wouldn’t bring children or a church group to such places but as a place for guys to watch the big game, it’s not bad as long as food isn’t the most important thing you are going for.
