Please no one stop here until they fix the parking lot. It was so bad it actually made me angry. The potholes are perfectly sized to swallow your car, or better yet to break your ankle. No grass for pets. Not suitable for humans, either.
I would give this place 10 stars if that was permitted. Probably my favorite lunch destination in Tulsa as of today.
The building itself is so adorable I just about want to move in. It smelled delicious and everything was so dainty! I felt like a lady just being in its presence.
And as for the food- everything was so delicious!! I had the honey bush iced tea, which was totally dreamy. We tried just about every dessert on the menu- and each was better than the next. The maple pecan tea cookies were perfect. The gingersnap mascarpone will be something I think about on a daily basis. The lemon bars were just right- sweet with a tart-ish kick. MMMMMM!!! We also tried the raspberry mousse shooter, which is served in a shot glass with a chocolate cherry at the bottom. It's so fluffy it almost melts in your mouth.
I can't wait to go again and again and again...
This is the best new place in town, if you don't mind spending the afternoon napping after clogging your arteries with deliciousness (I don't, obviously).
There are many different dipping sauces for your fries, and we tried the chipotle ketchup as well as the caramelized onion aioli. Both were amazing, but when Dodge (the owner) came out to check on our tasty burgers, I asked him what his favorite was, and he brought out the most incredible thing I've ever tasted: malt vinegar aioli.
IT'S THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF.
Even though I was so full it was ridiculous, I tried a milkshake (why not?) and concocted a chocolate chocolate chip version that made me weak in the knees.
The view of the new baseball field isn't too shabby, either, as well as the giant TVs that serve as even more entertainment! Who doesn't love sports and burgers together?!
This place is gorgeous and delicious, and you'd be crazy not to give it a go. Crazy!
Okay- this place is amazing. You just get that feel-good vibe being there!
For starters we had the artichoke dip. I was in heaven! It was so super yummy we're still talking about it. The pita bread was good too, but seeing as bread is the devil for me right now, I opted for the carrot sticks. Yum!
For an entree I had the chicken salad wrap and gave the apple-roasted Brussels sprouts a go. They were so tasty! I'm usually not a Brussels kind of gal, but today I thought, "What the hell!" and was more than pleasantly surprised. The wrap was very fresh tasting and the chicken salad was divine.
My hubs had the bratwurst with potato cakes. Of course. I'm dieting and he's eating something amazing in front of me. I still stand by my tasty wrap, though! He said it was so good, and I cheated and tried the potato things- amazing. I don't know how they got all that delicious flavor in such a small side dish, but wow. Wow!
I left feeling incredibly satisfied, and still very healthy- something that's unusual for Tulsa!
I can't wait to go back.
I take back my three-star review and add one more. This place is great! Super romantic for a date, and de-lishes food. The portions are just the right size! Besides, is there such a thing as too big!? No. I must have been really grumpy when previously reviewing.
Spexton is not only a fantastic local business (everyone loves shopping local, right?), they're nationally recognized as one of the "10 Coolest Stores in North America." Not a lot of Tulsa boutiques can claim that.
If you're looking for unique jewelry, this is your place. They can customize any piece currently in the store, and will also work with you to design your own creation if that's what your heart desires.
Also, everything is handmade in the store. Right in downtown Tulsa! You can hear the pieces being cut, sandblasted and finished while you're shopping. This means when you order something you can basically get it overnight, which is awesome if you're like me and once you buy something you have to have it immediately.
They have a large large large selection of groom's rings, cuffs for men and bangles for women, sweet necklaces and are now even carrying diamonds. When I say diamonds, I mean awesomely brilliant white diamonds, but also my absolute favorite: black diamonds. That's right- black diamonds.
I'm totally biased, because my husband proposed with a black & white diamond engagement ring and I obviously think it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I also have black diamond earrings, which are super hip and edgy (if I do say so myself).
They have pieces ranging from $35 to just about as expensive as you would like, so you can literally find a gift for anyone here (including yourself, of course!).
Did I mention you're supporting local business? Because that's a really nice thing to do.
I would give the Drury 5 more stars if I could. This place is awesome times one thousand.
It's my favorite place to stay when traveling. It isn't fancy, it's just right. The beds are comfy, the hotels are always clean. They also have free wi-fi and great food.
Considering the price, why would anyone ever ever stay anywhere else??
Dolce is still terrific- but sadly Leanne is no longer there. She moved to another salon in south Tulsa. I'll yelp about her later! Everything else at Dolce is just as wonderful as always, and the receptionist / stylist-in-training, T.J. is about the cutest thing you'll ever see.Dolce Salon is a perfect place to get hot! They have a stable of incredibly talented stylists and… En savoir plus
The only good thing about this hotel is Herman, the bartender. He's fantastic- nice, charming, congenial and makes a mean cocktail.
The downsides? The rooms feel dirty. Our room smelled like what we determined was "musty curtains." I think we had a nice view of the bay, but the windows were dirty and were always condensated, so I'm not really sure.
We ordered room service and it was aw-ful. Less than one star. They got the order wrong, and everything was cold. If I only had one word to describe it I would say, "Gross." Also, they are very specific about tray removal, which I thought was nice. No one wants to walk by your disgusting picked-over food in the hall, so I thought, "Way to go, Hilton." They ask that you call room service and let them know you are finished. They'll send someone up right away to retrieve your tray. So I called, and they said to set it outside the door, someone would pick it up shortly. FOUR hours later it was still sitting outside our door. Oddly it didn't look any less appetizing than when it was "fresh."
Besides Herman, the only interesting thing about the Nassau Bay Hilton is the Clara Harris debacle. That was kind of exciting, but not cool enough to make up for the awful food or terrible smell in our unattractive room.
