Sometimes the best way to treat yourself on the weekends is with a big fat juicy burger. There are thousands of ways to eat a burger but we think the fanciest way involves actual bling. 24-Karat magic is in the air and can now be in your mouth because The Hardrock Cafe in Atlanta now sells burgers topped with a 24-Karat edible goldleaf.
Hardrock Cafe, established in 1971, has become one of the most popular restaurant chains in the U.S. and has expanded its brand to include hotels and casinos. It's always a good time at Hard Rock, as the lively and loud aura exuberates a tribute to the rock and roll genre. They are known for their simple but fabulous food and most notably, their burgers.
Two months ago, Hard Rock introduced the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger: a 1/2-lb fresh steak burger, topped with 24-karat edible gold leaf, served with cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion. If this doesn't make you feel bad and boujee, we don't know what will. You can find this blinged-out burger at all locations, including Atlanta's Hard Rock in Midtown, for only $26. We'd say that's a pretty good deal for a gold-covered meal.
If you're having second thoughts about spending a little extra cash to ingest a rare and sacred metal, we can help. This over-the-top addition to the menu actually has a cause; a portion of all of the proceeds from the burger will benefit Action Against Hunger. So you're basically eating to help others, eat! We're here for it.
Other mouth-watering (but a tad less boujee) eats at Hard Rock Cafe include Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders, Southwest Chicken Flatbread and creamy, spicy Bangkok shrimp.
If you're mouth is already watering and you're ready for all the burgers you can handle, you need to try the crazy creative burgers at Wahlburgers, opening five new Georgia locations, or this sweet and salty Krispy Kreme burger.
