Room service food and Buffalo wings.

Recommended Posts

We had a long tour and were not eating until later that night on Allure.  I was craving Buffalo wings and some snackies.  Has anyone ordered them?  How about the nachos or cheesesteaks?

 

Sometimes I just want bar type food!

They are ok, order several plates, they only come with around 5. Get a variety, it costs the same

I figured as much, but I crave wings, the hotter and crispier the better!

Isnt each order of wings a separate price, though

Yes but when one is craving bar food who cares  😁

 

However to make the bar menu even better they need to add Wisconsin breaded cheese curds.

 prepare to be disappointed.   anyone in Buffalo would  be insulted if served them.

I enjoy wings at home and have found them to be fine on most ships.  They aren't as good as you'll get from a good wing place at home but they always work for me. 

 

Just like a Chops steak isn't as good as a great steak restaurant at home, so it goes for the wings.  However when I have a craving for wings, they do it for me.  Crispness varies by ship or maybe cook on duty at the moment.  Sometimes they are more moist compared to other times and their idea of hot (spicy) isn't the same as mine.   

 

Playmakers hot is very hot.  No so with room service wings.

And the lobster isnt from Maine, and the pizza isnt as good as New York or Chicago.  I get it, but I'd rather be on a ship than in Buffalo

Yes PLAYMAKERS!   I don't care if there is an upcharge, I need hot crispy wings and a pitcher of Stella or Dos Equis.  "Sometimes" it's better for ME than gourmet cuisine.😉  My husband often said that I was such a cheap date "at times" LOL.

 

I usually order mine at Taco Mac with three mile island sauce!

I will call down to roomservice and talk to the "cook".

This is why I order a variety when using room service. More chance of finding something palatable

Variety the spice of life and palatable too.  Agree with you John.

I saw this hideous video of a guy who ordered everything that was on the Carnival room service menu, I had to turn it off!

Yes, but personally I'd much rather eat in one of the ship's venues than in my cabin. 

 

The idea of eating in my cabin just seems awkward and like I'm being a total bum.

Like Buffalo is the only place that knows how to make great wings.  No offense, but it doesn't take much skill.  ...and it's not like chicken is somehow a local cuisine to Buffalo.  LOL

Has the quality of the food from room service gotten any better as a result of the charge? Or is it just a money grab?

Quality is subjective.  However, the variety of options has been increased since the charge was instituted.

Not entirely a money grab, also a suite benefit

IMO quality and selection is definitely better since the upcharge.

As one of America's foremost Buffalo Wing Experts, I disagree,  At least with regard to Playmaker's wings.
