  • [Pictures] T-Rex is open! TR and photos

    The place opened only at 4pm today (the 14th) and it was busy; long lines made for 50-60 minute waits.

    We had fast service, but then post-entree everything slowed to a crawl. Still, the opening day jitters were few and far between. On balance, the place is a solid hit (a double, possible a triple, but not a home run). More in my miceage update this week.

    But for now, some pictures:

    Thanks for the pics! It definitely has piqued my interest. Perhaps more than Rainforest Cafe, which was only ok for me.

      Looks totally cool.

      Like YoYo, I'm not impressed with Rainforest, but this looks pretty cool. I'm assuming the womens bathroom says She-Rex.

        I attended the grand opening of T-Rex today and I was thoroughly surprised at how nice it is throughout. The food samples (all menu items) were very good (the bruschetta was FANTASTIC) and the decor is wonderful. I'd go to T-Rex over Rainforest any day. I'm quite impressed.

        Here is a video featuring the animatronics and decor, a couple of interviews, and some photos from inside the restaurant:

            Louder. This is one of the reasons it's not a home-run, actually.

              That restaurant looks pretty fun though! I've been waiting for that place to open, because I wanted to see what it would look like. Wish we had one of those out here on the west coast.... maybe we will soon enough!

                  I'll check it out at least once just to say I've been. It does look kind of cooler than Rainforest Cafe though.

                    Thanks for the photos and getting them posted here so quickly!!! It definitely looks interesting and worth trying at least once. Looking forward to your Miceage update later this week.

                        It looks like fun. I may have to try it out whenever I get down there. I was not all that impressed with the Rainforest on my last visit

                          We have been to the T-Rex in Kansas City and it is better than the Rainforest. Get the make your own smores dessert! Do they have the Build-A-Dino in the new T-rex?

                            Nice! It looks like a Dinosaur version of Rainforest, can't wait to give it a go!

                            Thanks for sharing Kevin.

                              Thanks for the pictures and report. It looks to me like one of those places you go to once and that's it.
