The Hard Rock Cafe Orlando at Universal Orlando CityWalk will be offering a special OctoberFest Schnitzel burger through October 31. Inspired by Hard Rock Cafe Munich’s Local Legendary Schnitzel Burger and features a lightly breaded tender pork schnitzel, Samuel Adams OctoberFest-infused beer cheese sauce, topped with smoked bacon, tangy sauerkraut, whole grain mustard and fresh arugula, served on a pretzel bun.

The burger will be served with Hard Rock’s seasoned fries and a side of Samuel Adams OctoberFest-infused beer cheese. It’s paired with the Samuel Adams OctoberFest beer, of course. The duet is an extension of Hard Rock’s year-long line of burger and beer pairings.
