“Pulled pork is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

First time eating at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. The pulled pork was the most moist, tender pulled pork I've ever had, hands down! Now the BBQ sauce wasn't anything special, but it was pretty good. The pork was so good though that it really didn't need any sauce. The baked beans were really good too. I think they had some Cajun seasoning in them that was a great addition. We also tried the deviled eggs, they were ok, but super expensive $3.95 for 3 halves, not even 3 whole eggs. I would go back for sure the next time I'm in Syracuse for that pulled pork!

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We selected this based on other Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Portions were a good size and prices reasonable. It seems a little odd from the outside but well worth it!

“Awesome sauce started here.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Excellent grub, great value for the dollar, excellent scene to be in at any time. Just one of the very best BBQ joints ever. Don't miss the deviled eggs, they are quite tasty. Brisket that melts in your mouth and the pulled pork sets the standard.

Absolutely a must stop for anyone into good BBQ and happen to be in the Cuse.

“Worth the wait.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

I recently took my daughter and her friend here. I've been to the one in Rochester before and was impressed. I've heard that this is the original. We had to wait for about 45 minutes to get in but the food is great, live music (blues/rock) good, and lots of good beer on tap. Kind of noisy and crowded, but a fun place to visit.

“Great authentic barbeque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The long line up and wait was worth it if you like good barbeque fare. The cornbread was also really good!
