Dinner at the Dino is just plain fun. The place is always hopping and has a great vibe. The food is good, but combine it with the atmosphere, and you have a great dining experience. The place can get very loud, but that is part of the allure. The staff are friendly and the service is top notch. You can... More

Been a regular at Rochester's Dinosaur BBQ for years. Their classic barbecue menu offers all of our favorites. We mostly do takeout, but eating in is fun too.

Great ribs. There were many portion sizes to choose from, plus 2 sides made for a filling meal. The other items on the menu looked good too. Tried green fried tomatoes very nice. Service is fairly quick for a place that is quite busy. Reservations would be a good idea. Although we had reservations and confirmed they seemed to have... More

Booked the upstairs room at the downtown location for a special family/friend gathering and was exceptional pleased with the facility. I coordinated a function for 40 people over the phone and via email for months. From the bar (staff perfectly) to the meal to the clean-up to the viewing of a DVD I produced, the staff was excellent. Every person... More

Great food. Wait staff are superb and cannot be flustered. A good selection of beers on tap. It gets very busy. Get there early.

Each time eating here-4 times in 5 days-the wait was pretty hefty...but the food is worth it. Very cool atmosphere inside, the food was great and the staff was very good. We ended up with nothing bad to say about it. It is very reasonably priced and despite the "biker" appearance, our family felt very comfortable there. We will eat... More

Packed with tourist. Great location/building/ambiance. Good draft beer selection. Great wait staff. Wings were wonderful. Brisket salad was a refreshing way to finish - versus a greasy plate full of meats and heavy sides. Ate at the bar - very enjoyable evening - we'll be back...

Went to this place 3 times in a row to confirm this is a must-visit place. I had the BBQ Brisket (beef) and it was awesome. Their salad is so large, I ended up with my weekly intake of green food intake right in front of me. Plus their trademark BBQ dressing is about the best in the business. If... More

When reading some of the TA reviews I thought about canceling our reservation due to the reports of bad service. We are glad we didn't...we made an Open Table reservation via TA and waited maybe 10 minutes for a table. Then Beth, our server, came and was charming and efficient. Our food came in short order. BTW, it was delicious.... More

After reading the comments on here, we decided that we were going to try it. Had the hotel call the restaurant and were told that they were busy but if we were to arrive in an hour or so, they would take care of us. We then arrived at the restaurant an hour later, we were told that there is... More
