We’d dined here when it first opened and weren’t too impressed. Don’t get me wrong; we LOVE the Syracuse dino BBQ. And had looked forward to this new location. But while our early experience was acceptable, it fell fall short of what we experience in the Syracuse location. We’d heard that it would take some time for the Troy smokers... More

The meat was amazing - especially the pulled pork and I really like their special sauces. I had the mac and cheese as a side, I wasn't that crazy about it. It was very peppery and the noodles were a bit mushy but really... you don't go there for the mac and cheese. The staff was up beat and friendly.... More

Its a loud bar scene but the bbq is pretty good. Briskit was properly cooked and tender. sauce is spicy, tastes a lot like south carolina tidal sauce. Fried green tomatoes are good but expensive. Burgers were good quality and large

My second visit, won't be my last! Enjoyed the ribs, BLT with fried green tomatoes, smoked turkey sandwich. Also nice brisket and pulled pork. Nice beer list too! Comfortable atmosphere on the river.

Good food. Always enjoyable. May I suggest going during off peak times, so you can enjoy app, then order entree. Otherwise during peak hours you can't blame them for wanting to turn over tables to the next party ASAP . Food is very good.

This is good spot for everything from a first date too night out with the boyz. The food is good, but the atmosphere is stellar. I mean its not the "foodies" spot. Its the place to crush beers and fill your belly with tasty food.

Not much to say. The brisket was good, the pulled pork was not. The chicken was good, the ribs were not. The fries were good, the mac and cheese was not. The slaw was ok, the beans were not. The setting was great, the service was not. Overall...just completely average.

The Dinosaur has great food. Their corn bread is one of my families favorite things. They have great drinks, music outside sometimes (or at least one time when we were there) and the entire restaurant faces the Hudson so you can watch boats going by. Granted, it's a smaller width of the Hudson and not a lot of boats go... More

Great BBQ! Love the choice of sides and sauces. This location is perfect for sitting outside by the river to have dinner and drinks. If in Troy, it's a great stop and better yet, it has it's very own parking lot!
