    New T-Rex Restaurant

    I found some great pics of the T-Rex restaurant that is currently open in Kansas. From the concept art I've seen it looks like the one thats going to go in WDW DTD is going to be even better. This place looks pretty cool, I can't wait until they build one in California.

    Re: New T-Rex Restaurant

    I had a thread long ago from when I first visited it (I live about 30 minutes away from it.)

    Let me see if I can find it...

    EDIT: Ah, here it is: http://www.micechat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33407.

    It's a nice place. Of course the figures there are just as primative as the ones in Rainforest Cafe. I never actually ate there but, the food looks exactly like what you'd see at RC. Oh, and the gift shop is plenty big too, just incase you didn't get scammed out of enough money at dinner.

    we have been to the one in kansas city! (we live about 3 hours away) it's fun! it's very similar to the rainforest cafe (they are created by the same guy). they have a build-a-dino inside that is ran by the build a bear company. they also have a dig area and other activities! very fun place and i think it will be a good addition to DTD!

    So, let me get this right... it's similar to the Rainforest Cafe... so that means the food will suck while the ambiance will be well-intended cheese?

    Eh, I've never been one for the dinosaur craze... and this really does look like a dinosaur-d version of Rainforest Cafe, which I don't like very much either.

    And the menu is loaded with bad "themed" names.

    Paleozoic Chicken Sandwich
    Jurrasic Salad
    Layers Of Earth Lasagna

    Sorry, but just calling it a prehistoric pizza doesn't make it a themed pizza.

    Of course....it's owned by the same company as RC, Landry's Restaurants, Inc. It is just a glaring copy with dinos instead of rainforest animals. I have eaten at RC twice but it was a long time ago. Had the stuffed flounder which I actually thought was pretty good, since I can actually remember eating it.

    Lucky you! True story... I have only eaten at the Rainforest Cafe twice, once in WDW and once in Disneyland. And what I had in Florida was so unmemorable... that I ended up getting the same thing in California several months later. And I didn't get it because I liked it from the time before, I got it because it's literally the ONLY thing on their menu that'd I actually eat, but I didn't like it enough to remember that I had it before. Needless to say, that's it for me. I'll never eat there again.

    The Dinosaur version has no hope.

    I thought themed restaurants were a thing of the past.

    Re: New T-Rex Restaurant

    Wow! Tough crowd. Me and my family eat at RC all the time and we love it. We have been to WDW, DLR, and the one at Ontario Mills which has lower prices. I love the themeing, IMO it makes going out to eat a lot funner than just a boring place with tables and chairs and little else. I think the food is delicious as well. It must be doing pretty well if they are investing in another similar brand. I hope these opinions are in the minority, because I would love to see more themed restaurants.

    P.S. The prices at the DTD locations are way inflated, I dont understand why it's ok to milk the customers just because they are at a Disney theme park.

    I ate at Rainforest Cafe once 5 or 6 years ago. I can't remember what I had but it wasn't too bad (would remember otherwise). Was very loud in there though.
