Is this the Worst Room Service Pizza in Illinois Hotel History?
Every room service food experience I have ever had is usually a huge letdown.
Here's the thing though, in this case, it's room service pizza.
I'm sure you know by now my stance on pizza. Just about all pizza is considered "good pizza."
I mean how bad can someone mess up pizza that's it's nearly inedible? Only a few times in my life have I received a pizza that was so gross-looking I almost couldn't eat it.
Emphasis on the "almost." I somehow found a way to power through the mess and forage ahead. I finished the pizza but I never forgot and knew I wouldn't be back.
The two times it happened, once in Chicago at a corner pizza joint before I went to see Hamilton. It was so gross but again, I finished. I was in that area of The Windy City a few weeks ago, and I wanted to see if they were still in business. Alas, they are not.
The other happened in Rockford. The pizza was an abject disaster, but I ate it. I also found out the restaurant that served the pizza closed up shop not long ago.
You have to wonder if the same thing is going to happen to this Chicago hotel. Probably not, because you know, when you're staying in a hotel and you're hungry you're just about willing to eat anything.
I guess I would describe this sad-looking pizza closer to "anything" than an actual meal.
The pic was posted to Reddit and while the name of the hotel was withheld, the person who did mention they were charged $18.
$18 for that? If it was me, I would be adding a third pizza restaurant to my own personal "Do Not Eat Again" list.
