Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant Review

: Tune out the noise, full speed ahead. That's pretty much how it goes for those willing to frequent this pop-culture palace day in and day out. Inside the sprawling, multilevel café (loose usage of the word café) are enough rock mementos to satisfy even the modest music fan. (See if you can spot Elton John's glasses and diamond-studded platform shoes.) If you must dine here, know that the burgers, topped with everything from blue cheese to bacon to guacamole, are pretty tasty. The ribs are decent enough, as is the barbecued chicken. You’ll also find a few attempts at upscale comfort food, as in the Shock Top beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips. The apple cobbler is memorable, but you’ll be thinking about those shakes for days.
