This year’s World Burger Tour competition began with an initial round of 150+ new burgers developed by Hard Rock Cafe chefs around the world showing their take on the best burger featuring ingredients inspired by their local culture and personal taste. Based on sales performance, guest preference and culinary taste testing of the burgers at originating locations this spring, the five top finalists made it to the final round where they are being added for a limited time to all Cafe menus through September 2, 2024.

“As a global brand, we draw inspiration from the communities, music, entertainment fans and travelers we serve to create truly memorable experiences at each of our locations, from our curated memorabilia collection to our Cafe menus,” said Anibal Fernandez, senior vice president of the cafe division at Hollywood, Florida-headquartered Hard Rock Cafe International. “By providing our guests the chance to choose our next fan-favorite burger, we’re making them a part of the tasting and culinary experience as we bring new, culturally influenced, delicious options to our menu.”

The first Hard Rock Cafe at Old Park Lane in London opened on June 14 in 1971. This year’s World Burger Tour competition kicking off on Founders’ Day commemorates the beginning of a brand that in 53 years has evolved into an iconic entertainment, hospitality and lifestyle company with more than 300 restaurants and rock shops, hotels, resorts and casinos in over 70 countries.

Beginning with an Eric Clapton guitar, Hard Rock owns the world’s largest and most valuable collection of authentic music memorabilia at more than 88,000 pieces, which are displayed at its locations around the globe.
