Went here for dinner by myself (was here on business). Was told that the wait would be 45mins but thankfully it was closer to just 15mins which was great. Ordered a platter and to be fair it came out pretty quick, the fries were good as were the chilli beans. The pulled pork was not all that good and did... More

Hands down the best BBQ place in upstate NY. Best mojito chicken, corn bread, tomato cucumber salad and Mac & cheese! Yummy...

We had this catered to our office, the food arrived hot, cooked to perfection and the quantity was perfect. I would highly recommend this place for any size party they night aim to please.

Came in from the suburbs for an after work get together. Great place to just get together with friends for drinks and dinner. If casual is what you want this it the place. Al of the wait staff is friendly and want you to enjoy yourself. Always a good time at the Dinosaur!

If you like good BBQ, you'll love Dinosaur BBQ. Locals know. It's always busy. I like the pulled pork- it's the best. Get their Platter and choose Two Sides. If it is Gumbo day, that is excellent! I've been there many times. You'll love their food.

I've been here several times and it never disappoints me. The servers are friendly and the food is great. Hope you are hungry because the portions are plentiful.

I always go for the chopped salad with the brisket while my wife gets the chopped salad with the pulled pork. I often go for the 4 flight beer tasting too. We eat there at least 4 times a year...

We enjoyed our experience at the unique BBQ joint! Our waitress was very friendly and our food was delicious! Our grandson particularly enjoyed the mac'n cheese with a little kick!

We try to visit Dinosaurs when we are in rochester. Every time we've been there the food and drinks were outstanding and always consistently good. There are long waits on the weekend but thats when its the most fun and it's definitely worth it!
