I have visited the Syracuse original several times and its just not the same. This is a man made antiqued chain version. The portions are small and the prices are high. Being a barbeque lover, I also feel the smoke is over the top, just too overwelming.

Dinosaur is in a great location and has plenty of parking which is a plus in an urban setting. Try to sit outside during the nice weather and watch the boats go up and down the river. The menu is amazing and we have tried just about everything at one point or another. There is a great assortment of sides... More

Ahryah(son) and Adrian(grandson) accompanied me to the Dino BBQ for dinner Saturday April 12. We had the appetizer sampler and I had the brisket sandwich platter, with baked beans and mac n cheese. Wooooah! Outstanding smoked brisket, the mac n cheese was out of this world, and the beans were totally outrageous! I don't generally eat baked beans, but they... More

BBQ is a rare treat in the Northeast. I mean, if you are in Memphis, St. Louis or Kansas City, you can get a great BBQ. But here, the choices are limited. Most larger cities have a place to try BBQ, but the best choices tend to be 50 miles apart. So in a recent road trip, we pondered visiting... More

Stopped by on a late Saturday afternoon with the wife. Seated immediately by a friendly hostess. When I commented how lucky we were to get right in (large parties had a huge wait) she said, "You might change your mind when you see the table." She was right. Cramped seating and cramped table. Service was very efficient. So much so... More

We visited this restaurant on a Friday night and found it far too noisy. We couldn't hear ourselves think and decided not to return for that reason, the other aspects having been satisfactory though not more than that notwithstanding.

Pulled pork was excellent. Mac & cheese was excellent. There was a band, server was attentive. Couldn't expect any more.
