Dinosaur is a classic rib joint with locations in a number of cities across New York. This incarnation is located on the Hudson River in Troy, NY. Lots of menu choices, lots of food. Interesting rustic décor with a long bar, multiple eating rooms and an outside dining area (when the weather is decent). Worth the trip. Sometimes there can... More

I have met friends there, we have always had a very good meal, good service, and, eating out on the Deck by the river in Summer time is delightful.

A wonderful place to go if you like BBQ. The ribs are juicy, the brisket is tender and the side dishes are excellent. Scenic location on the river makes dining there a pleasant experience.

After going to both the Troy and Syracuse locations, I can finally share my opinion. The Troy location was too dark and the customers were packed in too tightly (I know they can do better because I used to go to this location when it was Fresno's years ago). Compared to the Syracuse location, which is the parent restaurant, the... More

Everything here tastes the same. There is no difference except for texture between a beef and a chicken meal. No real reason to try it except if you like that one taste.

Great place for Bar-B-Q right on the banks of the Hudson. Great atmosphere. However, this place is very popular and you could have a long wait for a table on key dining periods.

Big fans of Dino for a long time. We're used to going to the one in Harlem, this was our first time at the Troy Dino. Even on a busy Saturday we were seated within 5 minutes. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and well trained. Our food was out in less than 20 minutes. And our waitress was... More

The Dinosaur BBQ delivers exactly what the name suggests: large portions of good BBQ food. Although on the pricier end, the quality and the amount of food is fairly consistent with how much it costs.
