The Hard Rock Café name is known all over the world, with outposts everywhere from New York to London. So, it's no surprise that the central, Manchester city location is popular with both locals and tourists, looking to get their chops around one of the cafe's famous American-themed dishes.

The location of Hard Rock Café Manchester is spot on, situated within The Printworks and easily within walking distance of the city's most popular attractions such as the Manchester Arena, the Arndale Shopping Centre and the Royal Exchange Theatre. In terms of the vibe, this is a lively place with a friendly feel, often full of families or large groups of friends. So, whether you plan on taking the little ones, or meeting up with pals, it's a great all-rounder.

Inside, the restaurant is decorated with music memorabilia referencing international stars and legends of the screen and stage. Think framed show outfits, guitars owned by rock and roll singers and vintage posters of some of the world's best loved gigs. Once you're all settled, it'll be time to check out the menu with a mix of burgers, salads, sandwiches and bowl food for mains. To start with, though, enjoy easy-to-share dishes like classic nachos layered up with ranch-style beans, a four-cheese sauce blend, fresh pico de gallo, spicy jalapeños, melted cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, served with pickled red onions, scallions and sour cream on the side.

Something you have to try while you're there are the Legendary® Steak Burgers. Tuck into the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger, stuffed with a fresh steak patty, seasoned and seared with a signature spice blend, house-made barbecue sauce, crispy shoestring onions, Tillamook® cheddar cheese, applewood bacon, leaf lettuce and vine-ripened tomato. And, surely there's nothing better to finish it with than a diner-style milkshake or hot fudge brownie topped with vanilla bean ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate sprinkles, fresh whipped cream and a cherry.

Food and service was excellent. Our server ensured the refills kept coming. Arrived 15 minutes early but table was ready for us. Altogether excellent. One minor criticism is that I couldn't see a tv screen from the corner where I was sat. Normally not an issue anywhere else but in a Hard Rock always enjoy watching the videos
