Hard Rock Cafe
Rock 'n' roll junkies will love this two-storey restaurant with a larger-than-life Gibson guitar over the front entrance. A showcase for mainstream music memorabilia, objects include a piano used by the band Chicago, Brian Ferry's denim jacket, one of George Harrison's suits and scores of autographed posters and photographs. Choose from classic American fare such as burgers, baby-back ribs, homemade chili and incredibly good shakes. Be prepared for a wait, especially on the weekends when people from the suburbs crowd in. This atmosphere is not conducive to a relaxing or quiet meal. Expect a frantic, high energy environment filled with kinetic sights, sounds and smells. Live entertainment on the weekends. Reservations accepted for large groups only.
I'm not sure why, but it seems whenever I visit a major metropolis I feel compelled to seek out their Hard Rock Cafe. Maybe it's because of the kickin' T-shirts. It's certainly not for the food. This one in Chicago served a hard, bland burger that settled like a rock in my stomach after all the walking around I'd been doing. It was dead when we went (on a Tuesday lunch hour), but for some unknown reason we still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. I think it's to give you plenty of time to browse the store to make sure you buy something. My advice: skip the restaurant, and just visit the gift shop!
My experiences at HRC have always been fantastic. There's no other place I feel at home like in HRC.
I've recommended it to many people: good environment, good food, nice people; I take my friends any time I can. The time and money is greatly spent in there.
Everywhere I go I look for a HRC!
I really liked the Hard Rock Cafe. The food was good, music was good. They had some interesting things from different celebrities in glass cases including, Eric Clapton's guitar, and one of Elvis' shirts, plus a bunch of other stuff. I would go back.
