We ate here with a family member who lives in the area, and while the dinner was not bad it was certainly not outstanding either. We both ordered the pulled pork sandwiches; I guess we've gotten spoiled by some really outstanding sandwiches at other restaurants. Our family host ordered the catfish and declared it to be very good. The sides... More

I'm spoiled with good barbecue at home (okay my friend's house) so I don't eat it in restaurants much anymore. Send time going to Dinosaur and it confirmed that they're the real deal. I knocked down a full slab using a variety of sauces dashed on top. Fantastic. The sides (beans and black-eyes peas) were not as good as I... More

This was my second visit since they opened. I am not allowed BBQ often as my wife is not a fan. It was as good of a visit as the first. Dinosaur has good sides. We all ordered different sides and I tasted each one. Try the collards, they are really good and everyone loved the potato salad. The one... More

We stopped here on our way to Montreal one evening and sat at the bar for a drink and small plates because it was so late at night. The bar has catchy tattoo like decorations. The food was pretty good! I enjoyed the wings, sausage cheese and crackers, and a few other appetizers. The deviled eggs were not impressive, but... More

Loved ribs, however, the sides needed some help. They didn't have the sweet potatoe side (which was my first choice) and the mashed potatoes w/gravy was just "ok". Salad side, was a little lean, however, the cornbread was good. Service was excellent.

We went for dinner; 4 adults. We were glad they took reservations as the place was busy. Parking was a bit of an issue as the lot isn't able to accommodate all the customers. There was an overflow lot somewhere but not visible to us. We were seated immediately at a table with chairs but there are also booths. A... More

Recently went to dinner with my son and grandson. The service was superb. The server was great with my grandson. The ribs, mac&cheese, and mashed sweet potatoes with walnuts were fantastic. My son had the Cajun chicken sandwich and he loved it. Even though the place was you very busy, all the servers were extremely attentive and friendly. Highly recommend... More
