That six-string on the wall isn’t just a guitar and our "Legendary" isn’t just a burger! Made fresh, in-house daily and cooked using the finest ingredients, it’s a legend, and has been for almost four decades! Spicy Chipotle Pepper puree and topped with Jack cheese? Hickory Bar-B-Que sauce and smothered with caramelized onions? Or how about laced and grilled with our spicy Buffalo sauce and Cajun seasoning then topped with crumbled blue cheese and a crisp fried onion ring? No matter how high you like your burger or what you like it stacked with, we have the one for you!

Why, oh why, would you tempt your sweet tooth with a heaping helping of cake baked into little cups and topped with frosting? Because the winner of tomorrow night's episode got to have their winning cupcake featured at Hard Rock's Pinktober kickoff event this past October at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood Blvd.
