**Disclosure: My family was invited to the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston and received our meals at no charge in order to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way.
My kids went to their first Hard Rock Cafe earlier this year when we were in Hollywood and have talked about how much fun they had there off & on since we were there this past April. When I told them that we were going to the one in Boston for lunch recently, they both just about burst with excitement.
The reason for our visit was because on Saturday, October 25th, The Hard Rock Cafe in Boston rolled out their new kids menu featuring the the Hard Rock Roxtars® and we wanted to check it out.
Here’s a little bit of information about the Hard Rock Roxtars™ program:
The Hard Rock Roxtars are a band of characters serving as brand ambassadors for Hard Rock’s multifaceted brand-wide programs catering to children of all ages, presented at Hard Rock Cafes®, Hard Rock Hotels and Rock Shops® worldwide. Kids who dine at the Cafe will receive their own activity book, Hard Rock Roxtars themed menus and they get to eat off of cool guitar-shaped plates!
As part of The National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program in collaboration with Healthy Dining, a mission and online resource that helps parents and children alike select healthy menu options when dining out, Hard Rock Cafes worldwide will offer healthier food options, ranging from Skiddley’s “Not-so-diddley” chicken breast to the “twisted ‘n tasty” cavatappi pasta.
As soon as we sat down, the boys got busy with their activity books. My oldest loved doing the mazes while the little man colored and challenged me to a few rounds of tic-tac-toe.
After a short wait, the food came out. My oldest got Razzi’s Redonkulous Chicken Tenders and the little guy got Sir Kingston’s Classic Cheese Pizza.
The new kids menu also offers a cheeseburger, hot dog, mac & cheese or fish sticks. On the side the kids are given the choice between fresh fruit, seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes or fries.
If you’re looking for something on the healthier side, you can get your kids a grilled chicken breast, cavatappi pasta or a salad with chicken off of the Kids LiveWell menu.
Each kids meal comes with a drink, too. Kids can choose between Pepsi prodicts, milk, orange juice or apple juice. You can upgrade to a Roxstar’s Thick Shake (chocolate, vanilla or oreo) or a root beer float for just $3.
Of course, Chris & I ate well while we were at the Hard Rock Cafe, too!
All four of us pretty much cleaned our plates. Over the years, I have been to many different Hard Rock Cafe’s and have never been disappointed.
One of the things my oldest liked the best was that there were two spots on the guitar plate for condiments. His plate came out with ketchup and honey mustard for him to dip. And let’s face it, what kid doesn’t like to dip?
The gruesome twosome had a little fun playing air guitar with their plates before we left……
And of course, don’t leave without stopping by the Rock Shop for Hard Rock Roxtars gear to take home with you.
Our family are big fans of the Hard Rock Cafe. We almost always go to one when we travel and we have eaten at the one next to Fanueil Hall in Boston many times. If you like great food & music and you’re in the area, check out the Hard Rock Cafe Boston, which is located at 22-24 Clinton St in Boston, MA.
