T-rex good, not great...

A Amore | Jun 2, 200609:43 AM

Me and the Mrs went to T-rex last night after the chowhound board has recently glimmered with few positive reviews. Had a 1/2 order ribs and the brisket with some mac and cheese (we'll eat our double dose of veggies tomorrow). All the food was significantly better than the first few visits, but still not compelling. The ribs were meaty and moist with enough smoke to know they had been slow cooked. The sauce was fine but added little to the flavor of the dry spice on the ribs. The brisket was also moist and just smoky enough with a nice black outer crust. It was thick cut so it had a spongy texture but just fell apart with a fork. The mac and cheese tasted good but was super runny. The best discovery was the homemade hot sauce on the table - really flavorful and good level of hot spice - the hot lingers surprisingly long. Including two Racer 5s, tax and tip, total tab was $50.

Overall, T-rex is serving better than average BBQ in a nice setting with top notch beverage selection. Fun to go for anight out with with friends, etc.

But when I'm craving BBQ I'll go to KC BBQ for sliced beef and E&J for ribs.
