We like big buns and we cannot lie. Which is why we made it our absolute MISSION to find some of the biggest and most legendary burgers in Gauteng, starting at Hard Rock Cafe in Pretoria.
All of Hard Rock‘s legendary burgers are served on a fresh brioche bun (that’s the best kind, in my opinion) with seasoned fries, but each one is legendary in its own right.
Watch the video above, and read a bit more about our faves:
1 | ORIGINAL LEGENDARY®
If you’re looking for something classic and massive, this bad boy is for you. It’s got all the essentials from smoked bacon, to cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce, vine ripened tomato, and even a whole onion ring. Think your jaw can handle it?
2 | HICKORY BBQ BACON
Picture this: 225g of grilled-to-perfection beef basted with hickory barbecue sauce, topped with caramelised onions, cheddar cheese, and delicious smoked bacon. I can see you drooling (I see everything). Stop and go get it already.
3 | ATOMIC
This isn’t your average wannabe-spicy burger. Oh no, the Atomic is the real deal. Your taste buds will tingle when you take a bite of the spicy fried onions, fried jalapeños, white cheddar cheese, and sriracha mayo. It’s a great option if you like hot food, but still want to be able to properly taste the fries.
4 | JAVA LAVA
The name says it all. Hard Rock describes it as being “awakened with espresso rub.” Yes! Espresso rub! That’ll give you the kick of energy you didn’t know you needed. And then, on top of that, they add house-made lava sauce, crunchy lava onions (pretty much lava everything, I guess), melted cheddar, smoked bacon, and a fried jalapeño to finish it off. THIS BURGER’S ON FIRE.
Why are you still here, only reading about Hard Rock‘s legendary burgers when you could actually be EATING one? 🍔
And remember, it’s all 2-for-1 when you use the ENTERTAINER.
