On our last day of our getaway, my sister-in-law suggested we eat lunch at Harley Davidson Cafe. Not wanting to argue with a pregnant woman in the Las Vegas heat, we all agreed. The type of food served is the traditional, good ol' American food. Burgers, BBQ, steak, meatloaf, Philly cheesesteaks, grilled chicken, chicken pot pie, country fried steak, and too many more to list. They do serve a few vegetarian selections as well. I choose the honey roasted turkey club which was more than I bargained for! It was served with a generous helping of piping hot fries and a pickle. The sandwich was thick with fresh turkey, more slices of bacon than I have ever had on a club. Alcoholic beverages are served and a few specialty non-alcohol beverages along with sodas. I choose the non-alcoholic beverage called the Boulevard Cruiser which was orange, pineapple, and cranberry juices mixed with grenadine and soda. It was refreshing and a nice change of pace. We found our food to be hot, fresh, and served quickly. The staff was very jovial and answered all our questions and explained in detail the many attractions peppered throughout the dining area. There is a photographer that will come by to take your photo of your group or you can opt to take a special one of yourself on a Harley.The entrance to the cafe is decorated in diner-style motif with a giant replica Harley sticking out over the door. The inside of the cafe is decorated with a chain USA flag covering the entire wall. But that's not all. Also enhancing the uniqueness of this cafe are the famous Harleys from celebrities such as Elvis, Billy Joel, and Ann Margaret. Adorning the walls, you will find display frames of autographs from Peter Fonda or Bon Jovi. As if that isn't enough, the most exceptional highlight of the visit is the Harley Bike conveyor. This chain pulls Harleys around the store above your head as you dine. A bit nerve-wracking but still a really awesome sight! The conveyor circulates through all three levels of the cafe including the gift shop located outside the cafe to your left. As I mentioned in the above paragraph, there is a gift shop located out the main entrance and to your left. In here, you will find coffee cups, caps, shirts, steins, shot glasses, all at reasonable prices. Tip: Keep your receipt from your meal and you will receive 10% off of your purchase.All in all, I would eat here again not just for the food but for the atmosphere, too. I would recommend this restaurant to groups, families, and couples. A menu and fascinating facts about the cafe is available at www.harley-davidsoncafe.com.
