Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant Review

: Hard Rock Café is mostly a place for tourists, with typical chain food with a Texas nod via nachos and fajitas, but it’s best to stick to the burgers. Few true Texans would eat the hickory-smoked barbecue over the local mesquite smoke versions. Nevertheless, it can be a fun spot to take out-of-towners, and kids seem to like it, too. Houstonians also appreciate the ZZ Top guitar on exhibit. On the plus side: the drinks are strong and desserts generously portioned.
