We went for Mothers Day (a group of 9 colleagues, none of us having any children) with no reservation. We were seated fairly promptly. Server was very polite. Two peers spilled drinks, and the staff was quick to clean it up. Bathroom is very charismatic with writing on the walls. The food was so messy, but they plan ahead with... More

We were trying to find a place for late lunch and so glad we went to this one! We ordered BBQ pork ribs with mac & cheese + soup of the day on side and also buffalo chicken wings. The service was pretty fast and the food was awesome, perhaps the best ribs and wings we've ever had. The wings... More

Went there twice. Tight seating for a group of 5 or more. Server was nice. We had a female on one visit and a male on another. Both equally hardworking and attentive. I do remember some slight Disfunction as to where we were going to sit and things seemed a little unprepared on their part but it could have been... More

I don't understand all the hype about Dinosaur BBQ. The food is okay but what really annoys me is the size of the portions for the price you pay. The sides especially are very small. I only go when I'm invited by a group of friends. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there on my own.

Wife and I went here to listen to live music after a wedding. Band was very good. Beer selection was good, but can't comment on the food because we ate elsewhere.

A family dinner at the Dinosaur was enjoyed by all, although I'd classify the food as average for the most part. Ribs were a bit dry and definitely NOT fall-off-the-bone. Chicken was also a bit dry, but both were tasty. A wide selection of sides, and again good, but none stood out. The appetizer sampler plate was perhaps the most... More

here visiting my son at college. He suggested a BBQ place in New York. I thought he was joking. Much to my surprise, this place reminded me of home. The brisket was well smoked but still juicy. The ribs fell off the bone and the pulled pork was succulent. The margarita were very well poured and the service was attentive... More

We were looking for a place to get a fast meal between my daughter's two hockey games at the Knickerbacker arena. With less than an hour turn around time, we knew it might be difficult. The first attraction was that Dinosaurs has a parking lot. The street was parked up in front of some other restaurants, and as out of... More

We came here for Parents Weekend at RPI and greatly appreciate the ability to reserve a table and the 10% off. These were selling points the other places we looked at did not have so I would give them a 4.5. The bar-b-qued food was great along with the Mac & Cheese. The copped salad and cornbread were average. I... More

We ate here with a family member who lives in the area, and while the dinner was not bad it was certainly not outstanding either. We both ordered the pulled pork sandwiches; I guess we've gotten spoiled by some really outstanding sandwiches at other restaurants. Our family host ordered the catfish and declared it to be very good. The sides... More
