Good putt putt course with lots of memorabilia to look at. To our surprise we noticed a line so we decided to wait and see who was there. It was the one who played Cletus Hogg. Great guy, very friendly. It was an unexpected treat. We would go back for sure.

"Brings back Memories"
October, 2016
I grew up watching this show every week. My Dad loved it. I am sure Daisy Duke helped a lot. Seeing the car and getting pictures was so great. I show them to everyone up ":North": here. I am a southerner by heart. Lived in Knoxville 2 years. Husband was UT graduate grad school. Followed Peyton and Lady Vols. I really enjoyed the museum. The staff was there Sept.23 doing last minute shopping. Maybe 24th. Loved it a lot.

The kids loved it. The go karts are fun but the track is very small. Just an oval. The mini golf was interesting. I'd say it's a 1 time thing.

As diehard Dukes of Hazard fans, my kids saw this place and had to go in. They LOVED all the memorabilia and especially getting to see the General Lee. It definitely brought me back to my childhood! There is a small go kart track inside, as well as a little putt putt course upstairs, and the price was right, so we decided to give it a try. A combo ticket for go karts and mini golf was $10.95 and even my 5 year old could drive. While the track was tiny, they gave the kids seven minutes to ride, which they were thrilled about. I also like that they separated riders by age, so my 5 and 9 year old had the track to themselves, while my bigger kids got to ride with the adults. The track is nothing fancy, but this was affordable for our large family of 7, and honestly one of the highlights of the trip for our kids. The young man behind the counter was so friendly and even offered my youngest two the chance to ride for free in a double seater with my husband and older daughter so they could experience the faster karts. After go karts we headed upstairs. I'm not going to lie..the putt putt course was OLD and super plain. The rooms had plaster falling off the ceiling and there was a musty smell..but my kids didn't even care. They loved that we had the whole place to ourselves. I wouldn't necessarily go back for the mini golf, but the museum and go karts were definitely worth stopping in at Hooters Place.

I think these are genuinely good people and the owner is a pretty good guy. Always had a good time when visiting here. Every now and then one of the cast members shows up to talk with peolpe and sign autographs. Amazing if you think how you can milk a TV show for that long.

Lots of memories brought back from childhood here! Younger children might not enjoy it as much because they are not familiar with The Dukes
