Hard Rock Cafe Rockin' Flavor Menu Review & $50 Gift Card Giveaway


     We were given the great opportunity to try some tasty food at the Hard Rock Cafe.  We have one location her in Arizona and its in the middle of downtown Phoenix.  So we decided to go have lunch recently.  We drove downtown and drove around a little to find parking, not always an easy task downtown.   Anyway, the Hard Rock is rollin' out a rockin' flavor menu along with their greatest hits.   The new menu is based on three concepts: fresh, legendary, and smoking.

     Hard Rock Cafe is using high quality, earth-friendly ingredients.  They are only serving the freshest produce and hand-made dressings for every salad.  The hamburgers at the Hard Rock are already legendary, but now you can make them even better by substituting grilled chicken breast for any legendary experience menu item.  Additionally, Hard Rock has added new smokin' menu items that offer unique flavors from a variety of regional styles.

     Some of the new fresh items are the Cajun Shrimp & Poached Pear Salad, Goat Cheese Chicken Salad Sandwich, and Shock Top Battered Fish & Chips.  Some of the new Smokin' menu items are the Shang Hi Smokehouse Sandwich, South Carolina smokehouse Sandwich, The Texan Smokehouse Sandwich, and the Smokehouse Chop Salad.  And to top it all off there is a Mojito Yogurt with Seasonal Fresh Fruit.

     I have to admit that I have never eaten at a Hard Rock Cafe prior to this.  John has at least 1 other time, but I have not.  It was so hard to choose what to have on the menu because it was loaded with so many items that looked and sounded yummy.  John and I both actually ended up with items that were not new, but very tasty.  John got one of their legendary California burgers with a small side of salad.  I got the California Chicken Club Sandwich with a small salad, and Jayden got the kids Oven Roasted Chicken Salad with the chicken on the side.  With each of our meals we were able to try the fresh produce and hand-made dressing in our salads.  The salads were so yummy!  The lettuce was crisp, the tomatoes were fresh, the croutons were perfect and the dressing was very tasty.  John's burger was so good he could hardly put it down.  My sandwich was also super yummy.  It was so large that after eating my salad and half a sandwich I had to take the rest home with me.  Both the burger and the sandwich were super yummy.  Jayden loved his salad too.  Our waiter was really nice and super attentive.  I was pretty thirsty and he was constantly refilling my drink without me ever asking.

     I can't wait until the next time we can visit the Hard Rock Cafe for some yummy food.  I think I'd love to try some of the new items next time.  Do you want to try some of the new menu items or even some of the classic legendary items at the Hard Rock Cafe?
