Man what a great atmosphere. Place could be great, but the speed of service is mind boggling slow. There are only a handful of folks here and it was atleast 20 mins for the first round .. ugh

Since I last went there the prices have gone up dramatically no big deal, but when your price goes up and your service goes down hill that is a terrible combination. When we got seated we didn't get our order taken until 20 minutes later. Once our food was brought to our table we never saw our server again. From... More

I had the brisket sandwich. Brisket was moist and not dry, very good. My only mild issue was the horseradish sauce was a little weak. The folks who were with me liked their meals too. Homemade barbecue chips were great. I have lived and traveled in the south for 50 years so I know a little about barbecue. Its tough... More

I had a chance to check this place out with a friend not long ago and I like their menu. I ordered chicken dinner and it was well cooked and well seasoned. I also enjoyed their wine while watching the Rio Olympics on a big screen TV. The reason I'm ranking T Rex average is because it seems like a... More

Our experience at this noisy, busy barbecue restaurant would have been okay, given that the food was pretty tasty and the portions were good. BUT - their customer service skills were disappointing, which basically ruined our dining experience. Here's what happened: First, I order a particular glass of wine. The waitress leaves to get it..then comes back and tells me... More

I first went to T-Rex not long after they opened -- which took a really really really long time, because the City of Berkeley inspectors battled the owners long and hard about atmospheric pollution until the scrubbers went to a stratospheric (and costly) standard. That's the back story. Front story is, go for the meat, which is lovingly prepared by... More

A fun local hangout with beers, cocktails and a varied pub menu. The food was very good. It has 2 floors and several TVs. The waitstaff is easy going. It can be noisy and is great for kids. The service can be slow at times.

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch here. It was pretty quiet and the service was satisfactory but the food was really good. The deep-fried oysters were cooked just right and the batter was crisp. I had the Texas brisket; I was given a choice of lean or marbled and I opted for the latter. The meat was flavorful and plentiful... More

Our family came here on a Friday evening for a nice meal and were horribly disappointed by the terrible service and subpar food. Dishes came out at different times for the seven of us, the waitress was snooty and the busboy quite rude. The crabcakes we orderedtasted like cat food, and the barbecue was quite disappointing. I cannot recommend this... More
