Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant Review

: If you enjoy pub grub, good, loud rock tunes and rock memorabilia, Hard Rock Café is your nirvana. Waiters are friendly, and the entertainment is, well, interesting. While the menu won’t surprise you, the legendary burger is noteworthy and is probably your best bet. If you’re not feeling the beef, the mac, chicken and cheese is a passable second. Ditto for the wings. Be warned: the steaks and chops tend to be overdone and overly seasoned. The drinks menu is limited, but serviceable, while the dessert list offers a handful of sufficiently sweet endings. Our favorite finish is the hot fudge brownie.
