In a city with so much to see and do, the main attraction for locals, as well as tourists, is Hard Rock Cafe Orlando. Located at Universal Studios Orlando in the CityWalk entertainment complex, Hard Rock Cafe Orlando is the biggest HRC in the world. With large, statuesque pillars, it stands majestically as a Roman Coliseum of rock, and boasts more pieces of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia than any other location. The site includes not only a vast, multi-level cafe, but throw in Hard Rock Live Orlando, a 3,000-person concert/party venue, and you’ve got a winner. Come on down when you wanna rock!
Enjoy classic American cuisine and barbecue specialties including nachos, wings, and Tupelo Chicken Tenders; Hickory Smoked Bar-B-Que Chicken and Ribs; steak; fajitas; Twisted Mac, Chicken & Cheese; Hickory Smoked Pulled-Pork Sandwich; a variety of salads; ten different kinds of burgers; desserts; plus a full bar.
This Hard Rock Café is situated right outside Universal’s front gate, so we were expecting queues, long delays and take it or leave it service. This didn’t happen, which was a great and very welcome surprise after a long day’s theme-parking! Of course, Hard Rock is a well-established chain, and much the same wherever you go, and for what you get I have always thought that it’s a little overpriced. That said, we certainly have no complaints with the quality of the food, range of drinks and the very attentive service that we received. If you’re after fine dining, this is not the place, and there are certainly plenty of better restaurants to be found in Orlando, but only if you’re prepared to put the effort in. If not, and you happen to be in City Walks for the evening, then you could do a lot worse than roll up here, as they’ll give you exactly what you expect, delivered quickly and, in our experience, with a smile!
