Looking for something vegetarian to eat at Universal Studios in Hollywood, we checked the menu at the Hard Rock Cafe. The Veggie Leggie looked like it would do. The actual sandwich was a delicious surprise. The rock legend guitars on the walls and the vintage Cadillac hanging from the ceiling are added benefits.

The local burger is a a beauty with lettuce, ranch, cucumbers, and avocado. Gorgeous! The onion rings were perfect, large slices of onion in a crisp Panko batter. Delicious. The kids enjoyed chicken fingers, steak quesadillas and a chicken burger. My husband had the All American Cheeseburger with his choice of cheese. It was good food and lots of great... More

This Hard Rock cafe is located at Universal Studios CityWalk. It is your typical Hard Rock cafe. Friendly people, great music and decent food. I had the ceasar's chicken salad and my wife had the grilled chicken sandwich.

The service was slow but the food was good. The nachos were huge. It's just like every other Hard Rock Cafe around the country.

We were greeted warmly on a cold wet day after spending the day at Universal Studios. We were notified of the local beers on tap which sounded great and the one I ordered tasted even better. The waitress looked after the kids really well and kept them entertained by providing colouring in pages/ puzzles etc and quickly got their meal... More

Located in the Universal Citywalk, this Hard Rock location has been a prominent feature here for many years. With a large floorspace over two levels this cafe can cater for a large number of clientele. A festive atmosphere & interesting memorabilia serve to provide visitors with good times. Service was prompt & professional. The beer was cold & tasty. Two... More

He was pleasant, accommodating, and efficient. Now the bummer, the food.......Youngest had the chicken chef's salad and ended up just eating the chicken because... More
