I love the burgers in Hard Rock, the only one thing I don’t like is to eat healthy I had to pay an additional $3.50 to swap out my fries for a salad wanting to eat a healthier option should not be an additional cost.

Yes but they paged me twice and my table wasn't ready. They pretended like we had tampered with it or imagined it beeping. This place is ran by a bunch of teens and incompetents.
