I generally avoid chain restaurants, but since this is a small chain, I am glad that I made an exception. Our family was traveling north to Canada,we heard about it, we like Barbecue, and it was a convenient place to stop. So here we are. We were seated at a river view table, which was nice. Brisket was very good,... More

Visited with my daughter while she was looking at RPI. The food is great and the atmosphere was good. There is live music Fri, Sat and Sun evenings.

Several years ago I had the pleasure of eating at the original Dinosaur in Syracuse. It was a fantastic meal and I was somewhat worried that with their expansion, the restaurant in Troy would be a "diluted" experience. Fortunately, I had nothing to worry about. Not only was it excellent, but my guests (who were there for the first time)... More

Dinosaur is expanding all over...next up is a place in Chicago, but I don't get the buzz. My husband and I went for lunch and because we were also going out to dinner that evening, we just shared a sandwich and two sides. The brisket sandwich was served on a squishy bun and there was very little meat. The Harlem... More

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.
