The fried green tomatoes are great. Everything else is just ok. Our waiter was very nice. My nephew didn't like it at all (except the chocolate pie, which I tasted and it was very good!). I was surprised by the other reviews, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this restaurant

If I was only rating the service and friendliness of the staff this would be a 4. The food however pulled the overall score down considerably. We came for lunch and one of us got a half rack of ribs and the other a sample platter of ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. The ribs were so dry that my wife... More

My wife and I dined at Dinosaur BBQ for the first time. The restaurant is in Troy on the Hudson River. There is outside seating on a covered deck. Inside the decor is unusual and rustic; very nice. Very large seating area's and a Bar. I had the 1/4 chicken and 1/4 ribs. Fantastic and delicious. You get 2 sides:... More

On my way back from Canada, needed a good place to eat dinner - and Dinosaur popped to mind. Was there a few years ago shortly after it opened and enjoyed the food. The second time around was not a disappointment. Location is right on the river and when sitting outside, is wonderful. We shared the family ribs - 12... More

Had first visit to Dino BBQ this week, coworker from Troy area brought me there. As we walked toward the entrance, I granted credit to the restaurant upon seeing the stacks of split wood lining an outer wall of the building. Wood fire, rock on. Inside, we sat at the bar. The bartender was adorable and friendly, very attentive also.... More

I liked the lay out of the restaurant. It's decor is unusual for Troy. The meals are good down home food. A bit on the messy side but just right when you want ribs, beans and chicken barbecue.

Sitting on the deck at Dinosaur BBQ in Troy is one of less than a handful of opportunities to really enjoy dining on the Hudson River in Troy. The outdoor dining experience is super. The BBQ is good - but there are a lot of places to get good BBQ in the area. The service is fantastic - fast and... More
