Most hotel-casinos have a similar 24-hour no-frills café, but the Hard Rock's just has that extra sense of cool. Mr Lucky's has all the standard offerings, from burgers, snacks and sandwiches to breakfast, plus some of the best milk shakes in town.
The cafe has been a staple at the Hard Rock for years and was recently updated with new flooring, ceilings and lights. A small patio overlooking the casino floor was also added. The menu has been updated as well to provide new versions of old favorites.
Options on the starter menu include grilled cheese sliders; the giant stack o' onion rings with chipotle mayo; and lettuce wraps stuffed with tofu, quinoa, red onion, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, hoisin sauce, mint and grilled chicken.
For a hearty breakfast, try The King, comprised of 14 banana pancakes, 14 strips of bacon, peanut butter glaze and maple syrup. Those looking to help a hangover will enjoy the Rehab Omelet, which includes three egg whites, crispy tofu, green onion, broccoli, tomato and mushrooms with a side of hash browns.
Partygoers can start the day with The Breakfast Bloody Mary, a tall mix of Belvedere vodka and spicy tomato topped with jumbo shrimp cocktail, a bacon and fried egg waffle slider, a celery stalk, pickle spear, horseradish and lime served with a beer chaser.
One of the best insider secrets in town is the $7.77 special at Mr. Lucky's. You'll get steak, three grilled shrimp, a choice of potato or broccoli and a salad. It's an off-menu item - you have to ask for it specifically.
Check out the new mini desserts, which give you just the right, bite-sized amount of classics like tiramisu, apple cobbler and more. There's also a line of alcoholic milkshakes and sorbet-based shakes for those who shy away from dairy. Try the Root Beer Freeze, made with Jim Beam, root beer and vanilla ice cream. It's an adult twist on a childhood favorite.
