Raisins was a restaurant that first appeared in the episode "Raisins". It shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic as seen in "The Pandemic Special". It is a parody of the real-life establishment Hooters.
The restaurant is an oblong shape with a sloped grey roof. It has an illuminated sign on the roof which says 'Raisins'. There are also tables outside - as well as a lot of posters - and the whole thing is surrounded by a wooden fence. In "South ParQ Vaccination Special", the building looks dilapidated and "Space for Lease" signs hangs up.
Inside, Raisins has a wooden paneled wall which has various posters, signs, and photographs of the employees posing with customers.

Raisins employs preteen girls who seem to be about the same age as the boys. The employees are usually seen wearing black mascara and red lipstick, although several others also wear eyeshadow, black eyeliner, and hot pink blush. All employees seem to be named after luxury cars.
- Main article: Maury
Maury acts as a bouncer for the Raisins girls, protecting them from "danger" as well as enforcing Raisin's rules. In "Raisins", he escorted Lexus to her bike when Butters attempted to give her a gift. In "You Got F'd in the A", he tells Stan and his dance crew that they have to buy wings if they want to speak to the Raisins girls.
The Raisins Girls wear orange shorts and a T-shirt with the word 'Raisins' on it (the dots on the i's are flower heads and the letters are spaced so the dots fall where their nipples are). In "Quest for Ratings", the Raisins girls were shown in new, skimpier uniforms. However, in "Butterballs", they have seemingly reverted to their old, original uniforms.
