T-Rex Skeleton

Although this is a themed chain restaurant, the exterior of the building sports a very well done fantasy archaeological site. It includes a giant T-Rex and a 125' long skeleton of an Argentinosaurus that frames the building's entrance. The interior has a lot to see as well.

While a bit overly commercial, it is still worth a visit to experience and makes a great photo opportunity.
