Hooters may have finally figured out a way to lure Mom in the door: Give her the grub.

For one day, at least.

The chain famous for its waitresses in sexy uniforms has long struggled to attract female customers — particularly mothers. But this Mother's Day, it hopes to lure moms nationwide by offering free entrees — worth up to $10 — for mothers who bring a kid along and buy any drink.

Many restaurants have Mother's Day come-ons — with restrictions — this year, like small cups of yogurt at TCBY; free slices of pie at O'Charley's and Shoney's; and free truffles at McCormick & Schmick's. But very few are giving away the whole meal.
