T-Rex opens at Downtown Disney
It’s a modern stone age eatery! T-Rex, whose full name states: A Prehistoric Family Adventure, A Place to Eat, Shop, Explore and Discover, opened today at Downtown Disney.
The restaurant was developed by Schussler Creative, Inc. and is operated by Landry’s Restaurants, Inc. The last eatery they gave us locally was the Yak & Yeti at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so you’ll understand why I’m not rushing right out there to try it. But who knows, maybe this time they’ve put some effort into the food and service.
It would seem a lot has gone into the surroundings. There’s a full-size skeletal replica of a 125-foot-long Argentinosaurus, and a massive animatronic of the restaurant’s namesake beast. There are also fossil specimens and a meteorite found in Argentina. (When the meteorite appears does it mean the meal has come to an end?)The menu has items like Caesarsaurus (Caesar salad), Raptor Ribs ( Asian barbecue ribs), Pterodactyl Wings (Buffalo) and Gigantosaurus Burger (Whopper?).
I’m not scared of the dinosaurs, but the menu has me quivering.
I’ll report back later. In the meantime, here’s the restaurant’s Web site.
