Dinosaur BBQ is good. Not great, but good. You can certainly find better BBQ within ten miles. Some of their sides exceed the quality of the BBQ. I love the deviled eggs and my husband loves the dirty rice. What you can't get in the other BBQ establishments is the Dinosaur experience. My first time at a Dinosaur was at the original in Syracuse. It's first and foremost a biker bar . . . that happens to serve good food. As an attorney just getting out of court, I did not feel out of place -- the crowd is just too eclectic. Bikers predominate, but everybody is welcome. The Troy Dinosaur is a bit more refined than its Syracuse sibling. While there are plenty of bikers and tattoos, any shabbiness in the establishment is not age -- it's shabby chic. Best of all, it is right on the Hudson river. In the summer time the outside deck simply can't be beat. A leisurely lunch on the water is the best. I recommend Dinosaur in any season (if staying inside, try to get a window table overlooking the river). However, if you are in Troy on a nice summer day, it's a must.
