Hard Rock Cafe: You Can Almost Feel Satchmo Sitting Next to You
New Orleans must be one of the most appropriate places possible to have a Hard Rock Cafe. Not that someone like Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong was into hard rock; but NO is home to some great music. The Hard Rock Cafe New Orleans has his trumpet on display. The food was great, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere was electric. I really did keep looking for Louis.
Favorite Dish: The Cajun Food was great. Try some Gumbo and a grilled cheese sandwich.
Hard Rock Cafe: Rockin' Hard in the Big Easy!
I am a Hard Rock Cafe junkie - I seek them out, they are part of my travel destination criteria. That being said, I love this location. That it is my local Hard Rock makes me a bit biased, since I have visited this one more times than any other. The St. Peters Street location moved in December 2012; it is now located in the heart of the French Quarter, right there on Bourbon Street (one block off of Canal). Walk around to look at the rock-n-roll memorabilia (including Fat's Domino's autographed piano cover). The music on the closed circuit is great, if a little loud at times. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. A nice place to sit for a spell to get out of the heat. They make a great hurricane at the bar. They have a stage and often host live music events (it IS the Hard Rock, after all), and a fully stocked Rock Shop for your t-shirt, pin, and shot glass collecting pleasure. :-)
Favorite Dish: I love the pulled pork sandwich, which is topped with coleslaw and served with fries. The BBQ sauce is not too tangy-not too sweet; the perfect mix to my taste.
I also like the nachos, but beware - they are huge! You can't go wrong with the traditional burger and fries either...

Hard Rock Cafe: Not Impressed
I had a bad experience here. My order was made incorrectly THREE times and when it finally was correct, I was not that impressed. I found it overpriced and the service poor. The restrooms were also the filthiest I've seen in a restaurant in a while.
