“Only Place Near PruCenter Open On Weekends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This place is more of a bar with a restaurant than a restaurant with a bar. I don't think the management expected such a big crowd on Saturday.The ribs were good but a little cold. The french fries were homemade and delicous. The creamy cole slaw was not creamy. They ran out of Stella but the Guiness was a great replacement beer.

“AMAZING FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The food here is amazing.

Real BBQ. For years I have been going to the Porteguese BBQ on Ferry St, and now a real BBQ place has opened! Go there. Its not cheap but not expensive either. Service is typical of a BBQ place...... not the best, but the food makes up for it!!

“Great food, service, and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Lemonades came as fast as I emptied them. This was right after long walks in NYC so was very thirsty. Atmosphere felt safe and nice family oriented section separate from bar area :) Not in a great neighborhood, but they stand out from the surroundings.

“Good Pulled Pork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Close to the Prudential Center in downtown Newark. Went there after a Rush concert, place was packed. The BBQ pulled pork and fries hit the spot after watching the boys rock for 3 plus hours. Everyone ( food side and bar ) was friendly.

“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We held a 30th surprise party at our home for our son today and had food from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Newark, New Jersey deliver the food. Not only was the food plentiful and beyond delicious but every guest at the party commented on how fabulous it was!!!! I am 100% thrilled with my decision and would absolutely order from them again!
