1971 prices were the attraction on Saturday with Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow celebrating 43 years of HRC. Started by Americans Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton, the first Hard Rock opened in an old Rolls Royce dealership on Park Lane in London. There are now 175 restaurants in 55 countries.

But for one hour only on Saturday, diners tucked into into a burger for just 50p as Hard Rock Cafe turned back the clock to 1971. We started with a cola float (25p) and an Island Spice Cocktail (Captain Morgan Rum, Monin Ginger Liquer and Monin Vanilla – £6.95) Mr Foodie is not a cheap date!

The float was amazing, just like the ones I used to make. We were still stuck with the menu. Even thought the choice was limited, it was hard to pick. The BLT passed by and looked full to the brim, the ribs looked lip smacking. We went for the ribs (80p) and a burger (50p) with a splurge to add Swiss cheese ( extra 10p).

Good size and came with fries, slaw and BBQ beans – can’t knock that for 80p! The burger came with fries and HUGE onion and tomato slices.

Stuffed with the portions (and the cola float), we decided to share a hot fudge sundae (40p).

A twist and shout shake (£7.25) for the man. Rum, Guinness, ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream and bacon pieces – is there anything bacon doesn’t go with?!

At £16.50 what a feast, and sorted out Mrs Foodies aim to have more money spent on booze than food on a receipt – we might have to try this again with some real prices!
