I had a chance to check this place out with a friend not long ago and I like their menu. I ordered chicken dinner and it was well cooked and well seasoned. I also enjoyed their wine while watching the Rio Olympics on a big screen TV. The reason I'm ranking T Rex average is because it seems like a... More

Our experience at this noisy, busy barbecue restaurant would have been okay, given that the food was pretty tasty and the portions were good. BUT - their customer service skills were disappointing, which basically ruined our dining experience. Here's what happened: First, I order a particular glass of wine. The waitress leaves to get it..then comes back and tells me... More

I first went to T-Rex not long after they opened -- which took a really really really long time, because the City of Berkeley inspectors battled the owners long and hard about atmospheric pollution until the scrubbers went to a stratospheric (and costly) standard. That's the back story. Front story is, go for the meat, which is lovingly prepared by... More

A fun local hangout with beers, cocktails and a varied pub menu. The food was very good. It has 2 floors and several TVs. The waitstaff is easy going. It can be noisy and is great for kids. The service can be slow at times.

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch here. It was pretty quiet and the service was satisfactory but the food was really good. The deep-fried oysters were cooked just right and the batter was crisp. I had the Texas brisket; I was given a choice of lean or marbled and I opted for the latter. The meat was flavorful and plentiful... More

Our family came here on a Friday evening for a nice meal and were horribly disappointed by the terrible service and subpar food. Dishes came out at different times for the seven of us, the waitress was snooty and the busboy quite rude. The crabcakes we orderedtasted like cat food, and the barbecue was quite disappointing. I cannot recommend this... More

Friday afternoon, happy hour. Our wait/server/person was spot on. Friendly, attentive, spot on. My friends had the Deviled eggs and raved about them. They also raved about the fries which I felt were just okay. Another friend had the pulled pork sandwich and enjoyed it. I had the riblets. My advice would be to not get the riblets. They were...

Made over to T-Rex for lunch with friends. This was my second visit and if you want some bbq and beer this is a decent spot. I had the Carolina pulled pork sandwich and it was good. This is a good size sandwich served with homemade chips. Price wise a little on the higher end or moderate I would say... More

I'm not really a meat eater but will occasionally make exceptions. The food here was not exceptional. The atmosphere felt chaotic and a bit cold other than the large screen TV (not my thing). There wasn't much organization in terms of who was serving, who was doing something else. Our server was a bit surly and not in tune with... More
