We have been dining at T-Rex Barbeque for years and it seems like every year or two they are under new ownership or management or something. It used to be much better years ago. My friend ordered a T-Rex burger which he said was good...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...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.
