I found the last couple of visits haven't been as good. They seemed to be short staffed. Confusion between the wait staff and kitchen. Long waits for food. Not the Rex that I usually enjoy. Hope they can get it together!

We are a group of seniors who have become disappointed with the Rex. Sometimes the Rex does not have items available. Sometimes there are so many patrons on a Friday night that the wait-time can be one hour. Complaints to the owner reveal that the...More
