I particularly enjoy this HRC, just because it has the fun Vegas ambience. Classic rock, same delicious food, and they have the smarts to keep the music at a decent decibel instead of deafening everyone.

I hadnt been to this chain in years... came for the yelp check in and it was decent grub... but I was completely reminded that it is a chain and consequently not that spectacular...
So this place in the 90s was the chit. I mean you had to have the t shirt from any of 10 cities to show how cool you were. Fast forward to today, and I don't think I have sen anyone in a hardrock café t shirt in at least 10 years. Crazy stuff truth be told. The swag here is the same as every other hard rock café worldwide, it just says lost wages on it instead of Albuquerque, Sydney, or London.
Pro Tip: Yelp check in for 20% off of your check not including alcohol.
I got a burger that was fairly average when I was here. It didn't stand out and make me go wow or think anything specific. To go with it I got french fried potatoes and topped them with cheese and BACON! Sadly it cost me an extra $2.50 for the cheese and bacon O_O I was totally caught off guard by that. Especially when it was one strip of bacon crumbled and one slice of American cheese. Not exactly a great bang for your buck.
One of my friends had a salad which was purportedly decent. It came with a number of toppings and I bet the total calorie count was more than my burger and fries =X My other two friends there split a meal which they seemed to enjoy but weren't very excited about and I cant remember what they ordered haha.
Drinks were decent pours but that is expected in Vegas IMHO. Several hurricanes were delivered to our table and the girls enjoyed them and got them with the souvenir glasses.
Overall it was acceptable food but a bit pricey for what we received IMHO. The brand is not worth the extra cost at this point in time and it was an average meal with averagish service and bygone swag... so enjoy it if you go but don't expect much...

Michael was an AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME WAITER!!!!! (50 stars for him).
However, the food was HORRIBLE! My taco was BAD! The meat was cold, the tortilla was cold, and the whole thing was just COLD AND BLAND. Blah, not worth my $10.00 @ all.

Oh Hard Rock food, I have a 3 star feeling about you:
-=-Hickory Smoked Pork Belly Sliders-=- Too bready for the meat and flavor content. Pork Belly is so yummy when it leaks it's juices all over your bread. Wasn't the case here.
-=-Braised Short Rib Tacos-=- They weren't stuffed by any means, but I felt were the most tasty of the bunch. The bites into these were the most enjoyable I had for this meal.
-=-Nacho Mama Fried Jalapenos-=- These were a crispy surprise, but then again you dip anything in ranch and I'm a fan. Dip my napkin in ranch and I'd probably faint.
-=-Twisted Mac and Cheese-=- We ordered this outside of the happy hour menu. It was all tons of cheesy. For what it was, without meat additives (ignoring the chicken on top, doesn't count), it was a good blend, but was still missing something. Can't put a finger to it.
Oh Michael, so awesome you were as our server. You were 5 star awesome. I hope our other friends were able to have the pleasure as well.

It's a rocking good time!
I like the Hard Rock Cafe, I remember collecting pins from all the different Hard Rock Cafe locations I've been too. Although it's very touristy, I really like it.
It's the cool tourist spot.
The bartenders here pour a mean drink and I love it.
It's just fun, fun, fun!
Definitely coming back!

Yes, I'm a pin whore and Hard Rock is on the my list of whore houses. I came here during Yelp Spring Break and I got a chance to do a little shopping on Sunday prior to leaving our hotel. They still do take AAA discounts here which is a plus.
So I got my pin fix.
What was a little disappointing was they didn't have the shot glass that we wanted.
Always thought the shot glasses and T-shirts were their best sellers? Maybe not.
I also stopped upstairs to the cafe at 11am to try and use my Yelp drink ticket.
Going upstairs, the hostesses did not greet and it took a bit of time to find a server but I ended up talking to the bartender who, after asking, told me the tickets were invalid on Sunday. I guess that was my bad.
I don't know if I just came too early on the lack of service but hopefully it will be better next time I'm in town.
Oh, and oddly enough, there's no "LAS VEGAS" on the guitar outside of Hard Rock. So when taking a picture, you still can't really tell what city you're in.

Peter Mortons' 659-room off-Strip resort is a 'boutique' hotel by Vegas standards. At weekends it turns into a sea of hipsters dining at Nobu restaurant, clubbing at Baby's and drinking themselves silly by the pool.

I frequently dined here when I visited City Center. If you are looking for options off the strip and close to City Center/Bellagio/MGM, this is a great choice. The outdoor dining area is not huge, but I highly recommend it. If you go when it's not busy, the wait shouldn't be too long. I always order a burger & fries. The fries are to die for and the veggie burgers are amazing.
