As you know, a few months back, we spent a few days in New Orleans, Louisiana. We walked around Bourbon St. and all around the French Quarter. We were on the hunt for the best food in town. But then we stumbled across something. A restaurant that none of us had been to, but we’ve always wanted to try. Of course, we’re talking about The Hard Rock Cafe. Here was our experience. (worth noting that this isn’t a sponsored post, we just loved them so much that they needed a post. 🙂 )
The Hard Rock Cafe
While heading down to Bourbon St., a couple blocks away we stumbled upon The Hard Cafe of New Orleans. Y’all, let me tell you. There wasn’t even a debate on whether or not we wanted to stop in for some delicious goodness. We were in the door faster than you can imagine. As soon as we passed the threshold of those doors, boom. You’re in a whole other world. There’s not one bare piece of wall. I couldn’t even tell you what color the walls are painted because they are literally covered with music memorabilia. There are past and present musicians being honored on their walls and it’s really awe inspiring.
We got the rockstar treatment (pun intended). We were sat at a nice booth and had one of the best experiences we’ve ever had in a restaurant. The waitress was funny and very, very quick. This might because we told her what we were there for, maybe she just wanted us to say something nice. Here you go, random waitress! You’ve made it! haha
Okay, I might go on a tangent here but just hold on to your seats. Because, y’all, this was the best food I’ve had in my entire life. No that’s not me being hyperbolic. That’s a legitimate fact. I ordered their sweet tea, thinking it’d be just the same as the tea here in Idaho. You know, kind of… “meh”? Let me tell you, this tea was so freakin’ good I swear that Jesus himself descended from the heavens and blessed my cup alone. lmao! The southerners really know how to do sweet tea. So much so, in fact, I went through probably six glasses before our food even came to the table. Damn it. If it was a possibility, I’d hop on a plane right now just for that tea! Man!
Alright, enough about the tea. lol. The food now. If you end up making it here, go hungry. I’m not talking about “Hey, honey, I’m kind of hungry. Should we pop into the Hard Rock for some brunch?”. No. I’m talking about “If I don’t find some food soon I’m probably going to die, and/or kill someone. Feed me NOW.” kind of hungry. Because the portions at this restaurant could probably feed a whole family lol. Since we’re a couple of fat kids that gotta eat, we were already starving and it was no challenge.
I ordered this hamburger that had – wait for it – mac n’ cheese on top of it. Like… Who thinks this up? Honestly, Gordon Ramsay could learn a thing or two from these guys. My god, it was amazing. Chris got the shrimp and sausage jambalaya. He said it was a bit spicey but really great. In the rice was shrimp, sausage, onions, celery and green peppers. Terri got some kind of bacon burger and she says it was the bomb.
The Gift Shop
Yeah, you heard that right. There’s a gift shop. You can take some Hard Rock with you. We didn’t buy anything this time, but there are quite a few things to choose from. Anyway, we can’t wait to go back. If you go, or if you’ve been comment down below how your experience was! Here are some pictures for you. See you next time!
