Saturday we went to Downtown Disney for a bit. We got there right around 12:30ish and decided to try to get into the T-Rex Cafe for lunch. Honestly, I thought they'd say no way or that there was a 45min wait or something but to my pleasant surprise they said it would be 5-10 minutes and we were seated within that time!
The service was excellent. Our waiter was great. When dh had a hard time finding something vegetarian on the menu that he wanted our waiter sent out the chef to talk to dh. Together they decided on the mushroom ravioli with marinara sauce. (FYI- the Alfredo sauce apparently has a chicken base. Who knew?! The chef was also willing to make it from scratch it we wanted.) We were starving so we started with onion rings (Artifact Stack) for our appetizer. While we were waiting on those, dh took the boys around the restaurant to take pictures. The onion rings got to our table before they made it back. They were hot and fresh and served with 2 different sauces. I don't like onions unless they are cooked just right and these were good! I ordered the Paleozoic Chicken Sandwich which was fried pizza dough (like a flatbread) with grilled chicken, avocado, tomato, lettuce, bacon, pepper jack cheese and a lemon aioli sauce. It was HUGE and sooo good! It also came with homemade hot and fresh potato chips. Yum. The boys got mac & cheese. How original. LOL For dessert (which I could barely eat I was so full), we ordered the Chocolate Extinction. You'll see a pic of it. It was 4 huge slabs of the most awesome brownie/cake with caramel and butterfinger pieces plus mounds of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. OMG. It also had a *steaming* centerpiece. We took home most of the cake and dh has been eating it ever since. I would highly recommend the food here. It was expensive though. I think it cost us $84 without tip. We both think it was totally worth it. It won't be an every month occasion for sure though.
The atmosphere was great. There's a meteor shower every few minutes where the dinosaurs come alive. There's plenty to look at and it keeps the kids occupied for sure. I'll try uploading some video too.
Okay so here are just a *few* pics. ;) Fair warning...
