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 City Walk 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 music memorabilia than any other location. The site includes not only a vast, multi-level cafe, but also Hard Rock Live Orlando, a 3,000-person concert/party venue.
The Hard Rock Café combines food with music memorabilia. Each location features thousands of curated pieces from rock music’s greatest artists. The Orlando location is the largest in the world and contains the iconic suit that Elvis wore in the Viva Las Vegas movie, fragments of Pete Townshend’s custom guitar, Buddy Holly’s glasses, a huge collection of Beatles memorabilia, and other unique pieces.
The Hard Rock Café Orlando has an extensive menu. You can find many of the same offerings that are served at other Hard Rock Cafés, including the Legendary Burger. The Orlando version has Twisted Mac and Cheese on it.
In addition to burgers, you can also find a wide range of appetizers, salads, fajitas, steaks, smokehouse barbecue, salmon, sandwiches, and desserts like shakes, cakes, cobbler, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. The Hard Rock Café also has a large drink menu. If you’re looking for something unique, try one of the twisted milkshakes or the table-pressed alcoholic lemonades.
The Hard Rock is open from 11:00 am to 12:00 am. Lunch and early afternoon is a great time to visit because the restaurant is not nearly as busy as it is at dinner time or after the park closes. However, the restaurant has plenty of seating on multiple levels, so getting a table isn’t usually that difficult most of the time (but there are exceptions). If you don’t like to wait for a table, you should definitely make reservations ahead of time so that you can get priority seating.
