We never miss a visit to Dinosaur Barb-B-que when we visit Troy. Superior pulled pork, superb appetizers and sides. Start off with the Spicy Shrimp Boil, Deviled Eggs, and Sausage, Cheese & Crackers. Don't miss the pulled pork sliders and mac & cheese. Generous portions, great service. If a band's playing that night, be sure to stick around - always... More

We recently met friends at Dinosaur Bar-B-que in Troy, NY. It has a biker shack décor and it is situated on the banks of the Hudson River. We started with green fried tomatoes that were delicious but pricey. We had pulled pork dinner and a rib dinner. Both were very good. The prices in general were reasonable and the food... More

My wife, friends and I visited Dinosaur Bar-B-que multiple times over the course of a wedding weekend in Troy. The food is as good as it gets for barbecue with a plentiful menu. Many good beers on tap and the location is right on the water. The restaurant itself has a lovely ambiance. I would go out of my way... More

This place is like a sports bar, but without all the sports. Good food, reasonable prices, and attentive wait staff made for an enjoyable visit. It's definitely not a fancy place - it was actually rather rustic - but it was comfortable. The best I can compare to is going to a family gathering in someone's backyard. I'd definitely visit...

I went to Dinosaur on a Wednesday night. The place was packed. I know from living in Albany 15 years ago that the area is starved for good BBQ. I ordered the pulled pork plate with cole slaw and fries for sides, along with Allagash White beer. The beer was excellent, as usual. I know from talking to my friends... More

I found that this restaurant has a great location on riverbank. Also it is nicely decorated, has a very good ambiance. Place was packed, even had a wait list on a weeknight. Staff was really friendly, service was great. Pretty decent beer selection. But it all ends there. I found the food to be very average. So this is a... More
