T-Rex - Problems nearig extinction

rworange | Nov 22, 2005 01:03 PM

Not that I plan to give reports about T-Rex everytime I walk in the door, but last night was such a good experience that I thought I'd give an update.

Super server who was on top of things. Food arrived in record time. The ice tea, a nice unsweetend version, was promptly refilled.

Who knows how the place will evolve, but it is pleasant food with a good price for the sandwiches. The pulled pork was good and came with an oil-based slaw and spicy house made chips. I really like the rolls that they used for the hamburgers.

Being a fan of the hamburger bun classic, this is a nice evolution with the bun being a bit sturdier. Just like it.

Decided to try another dessert. The brownie sundae with butter brickle ice cream was good, a sligtly more grown up version of this dessert. Two bittersweet chocolate brownies sandwiched butter brickle flavored ice cream with peanut halves. There was a nice shot of deep chocolate syrup on top and light pieces of brickle sprinkled over it all. The brickle was nice and light and not the usual teeth-breaking version.

It was a nice update on the brownie sundae.

And expecially nice about the service was that when the server took my check she said "I'll be back with your change". That got her a few extra bucks alone since she didn't say those words I hate "do you want change". Gets me nuts when servers say that. Just give me my change.

So this was a Monday night. The place was half full. Can't vouch for any other time, but there seem to be some new faces on the floor and a manager who was quite visible.
