Breakfast In Hell - Wyndham, Tulsa
The Good :
Nothing really. It was cold and since it is attached to the hotel you don’t have to leave. I suppose that counts for something.
The Bad :
The food, the price for what you get, the atmosphere, the service. Basically anything you would be looking for at a restaurant.
An in-hotel restaurant at the Wyndham in Tulsa, OK that is probably best to avoid.
So I’ve been in Tulsa a few times over the last few months working on some business deals. I stayed at the Wyndham as it is close to the airport and the city, and I get some good rewards there.
Some reservations include the breakfast buffet. Mine didn’t but I didn’t feel like leaving the hotel because it was cold so I ventured down the the restaurant on my own dime.
I arrived and was seated fairly quickly. I was brought coffee and orange juice.
The first thing I noticed about this place was that the seats were awkward in proportion to the tables and the space was very bright. Almost uncomfortably so. It seemed as if someone had remodeled it and in a hurry. I note that the pictures on the Wyndham site of the restaurant don’t match up with the current layout. So I assume this is a recent remodel.
When I headed up to the buffet it was a humorous scene. Customers where awkwardly trying to reach under and sneeze guard and remove an entire full chaffing pan lid. They were trying trying to hold it up, but were not able to move it too far because there was another next to it. They were simultaneously attempting to scoop out whatever it was they were serving. It was almost hilarious.
Luckily for myself and a few other people we were able to create a team effort in order to wrestle our food choice from their dishes. The person across from you would hold up the lid while you dished out your food. They would replace the lid and you would do the same for them. I wish I had recorded it.
The food itself I would rate as mildly preferable to hunger (in the words of the great Gill Chesterton.) The eggs seemed powered, the hash browns were overcooked and mushy, the sausage looked like it had barely touched a grill. (It was cooked, just not seared.) The biscuit was apparently from a frozen dough and it was cold when I ate it. Luckily I had butter and jelly to make it so I didn’t have to starve for a few hours.
I asked the waitress to find out if the eggs were powdered and if the hash browns were frozen. She didn’t come back again.
Overall, this place is a loser. Save your $15 and head over to McDonald’s. or any number other other places in the area.
