“Best ribs and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Visited this restaurant with 21 hungry Urban hikers from Long Island.
I ordered the 1/2 slab of ribs with mac and cheese and sweet potatoes with a nutty topping and a cornbread. Food was absolutely delicious and price was $17.95. Well worth it! One of the greatest things was the service and attention our server supplied for a large group of people. Her name is: Servon. Great job...keep up the good work and your wonderful disposition! Thank you!

“Classical american BBC style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Very nice place. Unfortunately it is off the beaten track (for a common turist). The food is good and i really enjoyed it! The service is ok: it could be more polite.

“BBQ worth the Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Far to travel, no frills, awesome food! Go with a group- had the pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. Mac and cheese is amazing too.

“Built up to more than it is...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Sometimes the TripAdvisor ratings options don't allow for an accurate one word summary of a place.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is better than three out of five stars but was - disappointingly - nothing more than Average.

After seeing a very high rating here and a place in many 'Top BBQ in...' lists I was very excited to visit.

And the food was good. Really good. But nothing special. Nothing better than I've had at many other places. Across the country and world.

The restaurant is great fun. Big, bustling, warm and inviting.

I'd recommend a visit to Dino BBQ but would suggest not building expectations up too much. You'll enjoy it a lot more that way.

“Best I have had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

This place is definately worth a visit! The food was amazing, the staff are very friendly and for the price its fantastic! Ony thing i would say is dont walk in in a dress and heels as you will feel very overdressed at this relaxed scene!
