We were staying in the hotel around the corner and after a long drive we were looking for a light bite to eat and a drink to relax. Service here was great, only ordered the wings which were awesome. Looking at the food being served to others, servings were generous and if everything tasted as good as it smelled, people... More

During our stay in Newark, we went to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que 3 times, as it is conveniently located from the Courtyard Marriott Hotel, just a 5 minutes walk. Service is efficient and friendly, on the 3 nights we had nothing to complain about. The variety of foods is good and there's something for everyone. They although offer several brands of beer...

The service was a little slow but the menu unique and the portions plentiful. I enjoyed the Brisket Blue which was flavourful. Prices were fair, good energy within the establishment and they had a decent beer menu. Worth a visit.

It was the middle of August, but we were seated immediately. The ambiance was nice, not quiet but not too loud either. I ordered the original brisket sandwich platter and my son had the original pork sandwich. We have had plenty of mediocre sandwiches of this type at other restaurants, but these definitely stood out as some of the betters... More

All big BBQ lovers, my friends and I decided to test this place out after hearing about it for a while. We made reservations but came a bit early - they sat us right away and the service continued to be great throughout the night. The BBQ was absolutely delicious and reasonable portions were given to us. Definitely one of... More

Had an amazing lunch deal...pulled pork sandwich, which was great...Mac and cheese...off the hook good, and slaw, which was just good..with a beverage to go...10 bucks.... More

Tried to get reservations last Friday but they were booked solid so I tried again Monday, July 14th and that seemed to be a good time to go. It's right next to the Prudential Center so week-ends or during events tend to be quite busy for them. When we walked in we were greeted warmly and the hospitable service lasted... More

My wife and I went to a Katy Perry concert Friday at the Prudential Center. Wanted a good place to each that was close to the concert. After reading many reviews on this place had mixed emotions as to eat here or not. I called to make a reservation and they told me they do not accept reservations on game... More

This is a restaurant that I've frequented many times in the past and have recommended many times. My experience there this week made me truly regret any positive reviews I had previously provided. As a regular customer, I was excited to go back and bring my boyfriend to try the food. We were coming from a work party/event, and although... More

We were attending PBR at arena and stopped here for a quick dinner. Food was a little pricey but portions were nice sizes and food very tasty. I would go back again. The salmon was very tasty and presentation was beautiful. The sample platter was a must and ribs are yummy. Give it a try. It's worth the visit
