Great food and service
We dined at TRex with a party of 10 to celebrate a birthday. The tabla was already waiting for us upon our arrival. Service was very good and attentive. The food was excellent. All in all a very nice dining experience. I will return to TRex again and recommend it for your dining.

An Excellent find
Never knew this restaurant existed until I received a recommendation to go there from Golden gate Fields race track. Wish I had known about this establishment before, will come here more often. have recommended this restaurant to other businesses in the area.

Tastey food, good service.
Tastey food, good service. Was a little surprised that our waiter sat down at the table with us when taking our order. Self-serve water carafe on the table was lukewarm...we could have used some ice. But food was good and plentiful. We will definitely be returning.

Prepare to be smoked!
T-Rex is well known for their smoked meats, family style sides and of course..their corn bread (a must). In additon to the delicious mouth watering BBQ they have a well stocked bar with great beers on tap. The layout of the restaurant is open, my favorite is balcony seating as you get the full experience of the entire resaturant, local paintings on the walls, architecture and more. The staff is prompt, checks in frequently and overall always provides awesome service. Be prepares to leave smoked when you dine at T-Rex

Great food, though I am not
Great food, though I am not sure why they cut up a rack of ribs for you vs. serving you a slab - I've never had it served that way before. The service can get slow when they are about 65% full - drinks too a long time to come out and the main course was served before we were finished with our appetizers. Flag anyone down and they will help out but it really should be about coordinating and timing.
The BBQ is fine, tasty, the mac & cheese with bacon is quite good too. Crab cake appetizer - just 2, a disappointing serving size but at leas the cakes were a decent size.
Fun time, good food, with improvement in the service and timing, etc. it will become even better.

Great eggs benedict!
We went for a Mother's Day brunch (I had never had brunch at T-Rex) and were delighted. I ordered the T-Rex Benedict, which was absolutely perfect, served with potatoes, a bit of fruit, and bacon--my dining mates had asked for the bacon on the side so they could eat it (I'm vegetarian) but it was served on the same plate and touching the other food. I realize this sounds nitpicky, but it's annoying! Because we were a group of 6, we were seated on the bottom level which isn't at all as enjoyable as the second level, but the food and service were great. We tried to disregard the loud repairs that were being made in the kitchen right next to us.

Good group dining
Everyone was pleased from the kid who likes it hot to the fussy salad eater. The server was friendly, attentive, and unobtrusive -a great combo.
The food is tasty without any particular standout or dud. That's seems about right for a BBQ place so no complaints.

Nice place for big group
We had a big group and they accomodated us quickly. Happy hour has fantastic selection. Only complaint is I smelled of smoke (bbq kind) after I left the place.

T-Rex more than great bbq
First time T-Rex diner. Great menu selection and tender meats to satisfy our party of 6 ranging from teenager to 90 year olds. Excellent service!

Get more regular chairs
The only issue I have with the restaurant is that the "lounge" chairs at many of the tables are too low. I had to sit at the edge of my seat in order to be at a decent height to reach the table, and I'm 5'6". BBQ is messy, so this could be a problem. Otherwise, the brisket was SO good, love the sauce and the peach cobbler was devine. I've been on Weight Watchers and I was able to make decent choices for that program and still feel like I had a great meal. I will be back!!

BBQ with style
I've been to T-Rex many times since it opened and I'm never disappointed. Sure, I can get BBQ for half the price, but for big groups who like their BBQ and mac-n-cheese with fun, flavorful drinks--this is the place. Of course, there's plenty leftover for the next day and it tastes better! And the Happy Hour is such a value for the quality of the food.

The service my boyfriend and I received here was phenomenal! Although there were not many food choices, I enjoyed the food I did get (pulled pork sandwich, which was VERY messy!). I recommend it for date night.. Especially after an hour training at the Krav Maga gym down the street. I definitely enjoyed it!

Came here with a group from work; my first time but others had been there before. I had the southern fried chicken which came with to die for garlic mashed potatoes and a crunchy mixture of green beans. Definitely great!
Definitely worth coming back to!

Great BBQ in Berkeley!!
The baby back ribs were awesome!! The cornbread is worth ordering and so is the mac and cheese with bacon!!!

Bob & Lolly & friends
We took out-of-town friends for bar-b-que and found this terrific place right down the street in Berkeley. A friendly, efficient place with really tasty ribs and a huge variety of draft beer. The Cobb Salad at $11 is in a huge bowl and is one of the best ever. When I couldn't make up my mind discussing my second beer with our server, she brought me small glasses of two beers to help me select one. I'm looking forward to a return trip . . .
