This place used to be s lot better. The quality of food has declined. The menu is extremely limited and a bit pricey for what you get. There is a $3 charge for chips and salsa where pretty much every Mexican restaurant gives them for free. Our food came out cold and we sent it back. They did make it fresh, but it still was not the best. We ate very little and paid a lot.

Terribly greasy food, slow service, overpriced (even for the hard rock).

The Menu we were given at the restaurant was not the same as the one posted on their website. The manager said that they have been asking Open Table to update it, without results.

Either way, we went expecting a dinner menu but were offered only a very limited bar type menu.

Food was basic taco and burritos fare. Not sure who is at fault for this 'bait and switch, but we are not happy. We won't go back.

Experience was good. Just be aware that the house made guacamole is NOT included with the chips & salsa that is brought out to the table. There is a separate $15 charge for the "House-Made Guacamole". They way it was presented to us was, "would you like house made guacamole? It comes with the chips & salsa." And yes, they are not lying. They restaurant does bring out all the ingredients to make the guacamole in front of your table at the same time the chips & salsa are brought out to the table as well. Therefore they are not lying to you by saying the guacamole comes with the chips & salsa. They are just forgetting to mention one important detail, that you will be charged separately for it. Take into consideration though, if you do like guacamole enough to eat an entire bowl of it, then you should maybe consider ordering it. It did have a very good taste to it.

It was too noisy to hold a conversation, the service was poor -- and slow -- and the food was mediocre at best -- meat was tough and over-cooked, and not well-flavored. Prices are high.

Limited menú when concerts are in town. So, do not expect anything from menu posted on open table .

We were going to a show at Hard Rock live so this restaurant was very convenient. The food was very good. We had the fajitas. The atmosphere is nothing special

I felt compelled to write a review after reading some really critical reviews on this site. First, I have to remind those who say it's not authentic Mexican that we are at the Hard Rock! If you want authentic Mexican there are plenty of places to go to get it, but a tourist mecca like Hard Rock probably aint where you want to go! With that being said, the soft tacos I had with the skirt steak were awesome, and tasted as Mexican as I could have hoped for. The guacamole was made fresh at the table, and while it is a simple dish, it's hard to argue that any other Mexican restaurant would make it any differently. As far as price, again this restaurant is in the Hard Rock. If you are looking for value, go down the road just a few miles and you will find lots of cheap authentic Mexican restaurants. I went to Tequila Ranch on Valentine's day before the Andrea Bocelli concert, and I specifically went there because a few years ago that's where my GF and I first ate on our first date. The food and service was good then and it was just as I remembered this time around too! So if you want some good food and are willing to pay a little more for the ambiance and atmosphere, then ignore the bad reviews and try Tequila Ranch. Some people are just hard to please!

I have been to your restaurant at least six other times--it has always been the restaurant that my girlfriend and I enjoyed whenever we went to the Hard Rock Cafe for a concert. No longer! this time (we were at the Hard Rock for Andrea Bocelli on Saturday, the 13th) we were sorely disappointed. The quality of the food has gone down--especially when you pose as a "Mexican" restaurant and then use baked beans instead of refried beans. My girlfriend ordered chicken fajitas--I ordered "carnitas" which were good and plentiful, but they came with a very little amount of rice--and--baked beans. We were both very disappointed and I told my girlfriend that the next time that we are at a concert at the Hard Rock Cafe we will find a different restaurant to eat at before the show.
