Hardrock Cafe Tips (8)

Hard Rock Cafe - Washington DC: The Embassy of Rock 'n Roll

Love the Hard Rock - I've been collecting the pins for 25 years. This is a nice one - two stories, lots of memorablia. I love the ambiance - music videos playing on multiple screens (and not too loudly for a change). I was alone, so sat at one of the pub tables in the bar. My waiter, Chris, was very friendly and attentive. He laughed when I asked for "the world's largest glass of unsweet tea", but when he saw how fast I drank it down, he proceeded to bring me another, and another... I never had to ask again - there was always a refill at the ready.

Favorite Dish I had the fajitas, which were WONDERFUL! I tell you, it doesn't look like much when they bring it, but it was very filling and I couldn't finish (but I made the effort!).

**May 2012** This time I had the New York Strip Steak, with smashed potatoes and green beans. Oh. My. Goodness. The steak was cooked perfectly and everything was delicious! My only complaint (if you want to call it that) is that I was so full, I couldn't have dessert. Sat at the bar and met a teacher from New Mexico, and a couple from Australia who were on their Hard Rock Honeymoon - they got married in OZ, then started their honeymoon in New York, went to both Niagara Falls cafe's, Baltimore, DC, then were continuing on to Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hollywood, and San Diego. Now THAT's committment! :-)

Hardrock Cafe: "It's still rock n' roll to me..."

If you like Hardrock Cafes, you will probably like this one. It's a good consistent place to get something to eat. It's bit pricey for the kind of food you are getting and a bit normal for anyone who is a bit more adventurous. However, maybe you are in more of a less adventurous mood and you just want to get something you know, this would be the place.

Hard Rock Cafe: I go to collect the pins!

I have been very fortunate to have traveled to places where there just so happens to be an HRC in town! I collect the pins and I place them on a pillow that sits on my bed. I'm not one to collect trinkets and "dust collecting" items so this is a nice way to show where I have been. By the way, if you want to eat at HRC, the food is usually pretty good and plentiful. But when I'm on travel, I usually want to eat something I can't get back at home. The other appeal about HRC is the music memorabilia on display and the decor. Some have full size cars displayed inside the restaurant or sometimes the cars are protruding out of the entrance. This one in DC looked great especially with the lighted sign at the bar that changed into different colors.
