I’d been to one Hard Rock Cafe’ before…Myrtle Beach, maybe? And I don’t remember much about it. Had it been a terribly good or bad experience I’m sure it would have stood out, but it didn’t make enough of an impression on me that I either sought another one out, or sought to avoid one.
Some friends of ours…Point of View Comedy….were performing at the Indianapolis Hard Rock last night, and we decided to go have dinner and support them.
Most of you probably are aware of the Hard Rock….it’s a Rock and Roll themed restaurant, with posters, guitars, albums, and more. If you’re into music, it’s a pretty cool place to go just wander around and look at the displays.
I’d not intended getting a tenderloin, as they don’t have one on their menu. However, each location offers a “Local Legend” burger, and I asked what it was….it was a breaded tenderloin! What better local legend for Indiana than a breaded tenderloin?
Of course, it’s what I ordered.
About the best thing I can say about this sandwich is that it wasn’t a fritter. It was fairly thick, but both the meat and the breading were pretty bland. Don’t get me wrong….it just wasn’t good, either. It was filling, and it wasn’t a fritter…that’s pretty much all I can say about it. I’m going to give it a 2 out of 5 bites…below average.
For her dinner, Holly had the Cobb salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. She said it was good, but that she could have made it at home for half the price, and it would have been just as good.
As a whole, I found the food to be mediocre and overpriced. But, I realize that a lot of folks really DO like the Hard Rock. It’s just not my personal taste in a restaurant.
