A Look At The T-Rex Restaurant – A Roaring Good Time

Located in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, T-Rex is an unusual, yet extremely fun place to eat. The noise level seems to be a challenge for some patrons, but that’s the price you pay to be surrounded by wooly mammoths, triceratops, and tyrannosaurus rex. There are also flames emitted by the Kitchen of Fire. The walls and ceiling even change color. Sounds like a pretty happenin’ spot!

T-Rex Aims to Please

Offering fare for herbivores as well as carnivores, the menu has something for everyone. With names like Layers of the Earth Lasagna, Brachiosaurus Bruschetta and the Gigantosaurus Burger, it sounds like you might want to bring your appetite to this place. There is also a dessert called Chocolate Extinction. I wonder if that’s their version of “Death by Chocolate.” Entrees range from around $15 to $36.

There’s a separate menu for kids, which seems to have super reasonable prices, around $7.99 for an entree and $2.99 assuming they’ve behaved well enough to make it to dessert. In a place like this, it’s pretty doubtful any kid would misbehave. There’s just too much to see and do other than just eat.

Dino-sized Staff

It appears that it takes a small army to run this place as well. A single shift can contain 120 staff members. Rather mind boggling, if stop to think about it but considering the location and the activity level of this place, it’s really not all that surprising. The staff seems accommodating, informative and friendly.

Authentic Surroundings

Being that none of us remembers being around dinosaurs, we can only assume that the designers of T-Rex had their habitats in mind. They’ve included geysers and greenery with the triceratops and stegosaurus and even included underwater prehistoric creatures. There are meteor showers and roaring dinosaurs, which definitely add to the ambiance.

You Can Take it With You

In addition to the interactive Paleo Screens, Discovery Creek, Discovery Dig and Paleo Zone, there is a gift shop where you can pick up clothing, educational toys or build your own dino at Build-A-Dino from the Build-A-Bear Workshop. This is truly so much more than a restaurant. It’s an adventure that long after the meal is over, the memories linger.

Pre-Historic Fun

Unless you are adverse to loud and busy restaurants, you will most likely enjoy T-Rex. It’s got great theming, fun food, and plenty of things to see and do for the young and young at heart.
