Ribs!

In my world wide search for the perfect BBQ ribs, Dinosaur comes in a close second, which happens to be almost perfect. (Perfection can be found at Flanigan's on Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach, FL.) In a fun (albeit loud) atmosphere right on the Hudson River in Troy, the setting is a plus. Servers... read more

Was recommended by my sister. Food was amazing. Brisket, sausage, ribs and the wings were the bomb! I will definitely be back! There were many excellent side dishes and creative sandwiches. I believe you could eat here every day for a month and have something different. I really cant say enough about this place. They have an extensive drink menu... More

The food is good. The service average. The portions small and the price above average. Its not bad but not a home run either. I would not say this a MUST STOP or that it is SUPER. You can get a good meal here and better in other places.

Like the Dino in Harlem this place is fantastic. The wings are to die for. Smoked then grilled to perfection. I like em with Wango Tango sauce on the side. Always love the sweet potatoes and the fried rice. The Dino really does a great job with the staff. Everybody is friendly and ready to make your visit the best.... More

love eating on the patio in the warmer weather! nice bar area, and they have live music sometimes, but it is usually VERY loud. dont go here for food before closing time because the meat is kind of dry. if you go for dinner from 5-8, its great. try the fried green tomatoes or the chili!

I've stopped several times for a sandwich at the to go window. Tried dinner service tonight. I find Dinosaur to be consistently very good. Ribs, chicken and sides were very good. Outstanding craft beef selection. It's rich food, I only have a taste for it once in a while.

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
