T-Rex Cornbread OMG!

Made my first visit to T-Rex today - met some friends for a late brunch at 1:30. The crowds had dissipated and we were able to hang out for a few hours and enjoy a leisurely visit. Read a lot of the old posts so I knew we had to try the cornbread. We got one to share and it certainly lived up to it's billing.....served warm with a nice crust and drenched in maple butter! As much as I liked it, I would ask for half the amount of butter next time. Too much of a good thing - although I'm sure that there are many that are more than happy with the current pool of butter. Also had the smoked brisket sandwich, the pulled pork sandwich and the organic mixed green salad with grilled chicken. The brisket was moist and tender with a good smoke background. Not sure about the bread .... think it's a bit too much bread for the amount of brisket. I know that they want the bread to hold up but the brisket is served dry and even if you add some of the bottled hot sauce a softer roll would still be adequate. The pulled pork is more moist and might need this bread. If there were more filling/brisket than it would be less of an issue. ( I didn't get a taste of the pulled pork ) We were having a good visit so the food wasn't the main focus but overall we enjoyed the food and service.
Will look forward to going back and trying more ......
