Food is pricey, but my family loves it (especially the oreo cheesecake)! Our server was so great- I wish I remembered his name, but we liked him a lot. We did buy two speakers (in the shape of an amp) and one of them doesn't work, so that is really disappointing, as it was $40....! Everything else was good.

We have eaten at Hard Rocks all over the world...this place was empty which should have been a tip. Ordered $19 fajitas - no beans or rice came with it, what? For that price there should be more than 4 small tortillas and the chicken was full of water and tasteless. While the team of people were especially nice, we... More

Great food and excellent service in a nice atmosphere. Food was a little pricy, but well worth it. Restaurant was very clean and had nice decorations. Music was pleasant and not too loud.

Seems a little dated. However the music is good and the prices are reasonable. The buffalow wings are good and the steaks alright. Went for the New York striploin. A very family place. Also seems pretty quiet. Perhaps it's on a weeknight.

It's becoming now a tradition for me; if I'm visiting a new city, and there's a HRC, I will definitely go for lunch and buy one tequila shot glass. Houston was not the exception. As always, loved the music mix, service was great but food didn't exceed my expectations. I also feel this time it was a little overpriced. Overall,... More

I visit HRC in every city I visit. The food was the same as every other HRC, service was outstanding and fast. I like the memorabilia at HRC. We had the nachos, Southern Rock drink (alocohol) and the Legendary burger.
