Tulsa >Ollie's Station Restaurant
Good atmosphere BAD everything else.
My family and I are avid Route 66 Travelers. Ollies is situated right on Old 66. On a previous trip I ducked in to use their facilities and was absolutely amazed by their atmosphere. There are trains and all sorts of related memorabilia throughout the restaurant. Its a train lovers haven.
This weekend my family and I were in Tulsa visiting family. On our departure we went out of our way to eat here. We got in within 10 minutes as there was a line. We were seated at a clean table. To be very frank, our waitress looked like a drug addict. She was very fidgety and her two front teeth were blackened from what we assume would be drug use. This is where our problems started. She didn't bring us silverware and when we finally chased her down she gave it to us balled up in napkins. She got our order wrong and then lied to us about what we got. Then she didn't bring out part of our order. The food we did get was fair at best. Very overpriced for the quality.
I asked for the owner. He visited us at our table and asked what kind of issues we had. I started to explain all of the problems we encountered and I was quickly interrupted by him saying, "I'll take care of it" in a very angered tone. He quickly walked away and exchanged words with the waitress. They both smiled and smirked as they looked our way.
This experience was very embarrassing and demeaning. At least when we left the hostess offered an apology. - Even the owner didn't do that much.
Trains, trains, and more trains.
If you love trains, Ollie's is the restaurant for you. The Gray's have a great restaurant that has the best railroad motiff. With five operating overhead trains, a meeting/dining room with an operating layout, an N-guage beside a Z-guage in a lower glass cabinet for the little people, and a changing season/holiday layout on the top of the cabinet make this a train heaven.
With hand-cut steaks, homemade meatloaf, and the best chicken fried chicken in Tulsa, Ollie's can't be beat.
