HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hard Rock International received top accolades in the 2020 Porthole Cruise Editor-in-Chief Awards, as the brand's Original Legendary® Steak Burger was awarded "Best Burger on Land." The annual awards featured in Porthole Cruise Magazine are hand-selected by editor-in-chief Bill Panoff and celebrate his favorite experiences from around the world based on service, quality and memorable moments.

Steak Burgers are the star of the show at Hard Rock Cafe, which debuted its most extensive menu innovation in company history in 2019. The restaurant's proprietary beef blend Steak Burger patties are sourced from Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors and are combined with premium accompaniments like freshly baked, toasted buns and signature sauces to produce the most flavorful burger "on land."

This is the second consecutive year that Hard Rock has received accolades from Porthole Cruise Magazine. In 2019, the brand was honored with the titles of "Best Burger" and "Best New Restaurant" following the opening of the state-of-the-art Hard Rock Cafe® Hollywood.

"Being awarded 'Best Burger on Land' is a testament to the quality Steak Burgers Hard Rock locations around the world serve on a daily basis, adding to the world-class dining experience our guests have come to expect from us," said Stephen K. Judge, President of Cafe Operations for Hard Rock International. "It is our privilege to provide a best-in-class experience to each guest that steps foot through the doors of a Hard Rock Cafe. To be recognized for our commitment to serving the freshest and highest quality Steak Burgers by Porthole Cruise Magazine for the second year in a row is a true honor."

Guests who visit Hard Rock Cafe locations around the world can sink their teeth into additional Steak Burger options including the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™, BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger, Double Decker Double Cheeseburger and The Big Cheeseburger.

"Whether you're dining at Hard Rock Cafe before or after a cruise, it's hard to beat their outstanding level of service," said Bill Panoff, Porthole Cruise Magazine's Editor-in-Chief. "Hard Rock's Steak Burgers are simply delicious, which is why they have been honored for the second year in a row at the Porthole Cruise Editor-In-Chief Awards."

In addition to honors from Porthole Cruise Magazine, Hard Rock Cafe's signature Steak Burger has also been awarded "Fan Favorite" at the 2019 Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale Burger Battle, "Ultimate Winner/Best in Miami" at the 2018 Miami Times Burgerfest and "Best Burger" at both the 28th Annual Harley Davidson® European H.O.G.® Rally and Harley Davidson's Prague Harley Days® 2019.
