Firm takes bite of T-Rex
Deal means dinosaur eatery can open at Disney World
Dinosaurs are extinct. But Golden Valley businessman Steven Schussler is finding there's still plenty of life in the name Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Houston-based Landry's Restaurants Inc. said Monday it has bought an 80 percent stake in two restaurant concepts developed by Schussler's firm, including "T-Rex: A Prehistoric Family Adventure.''
< The deal enables Schussler Creative Inc. to build a T-Rex restaurant at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., with an expected opening in 2008. T-Rex will feature food and fossils against the backdrop of simulated prehistoric dinosaurs, steam, fire and ice. Customers visiting T-Rex will be greeted by life-size animatronic dinosaurs placed among cascading waterfalls, bubbling geysers and a fossil dig site.>

Features a raw bar, and you can butcher your own entrees, drive other diners away from their meals, or rummage through the dumpsters.
