At Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, fresh, homemade, and high-quality aren't just catchwords, they're our foundation. Our commitment to food quality and genuine hospitality is unyielding and intense. We pride ourselves on our loyal guests, employees, and being a great place to have fun and while sampling some of the best bar-b-que in the country. Our menu is firmly rooted in the traditions of Southern bar-b-que, but there are other influences that shape our flavors and give our food its own distinctive character. That's one of the secrets of great bar-b-que -- staying committed to tradition, but finding your own stamp and signature.Join us for live music starting at 8pm Monday-Thursday and 10pm on Friday…

I have eaten at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que restaurant in NYC many times. That is because it is located only a few blocks from the Columbia University campus. I am Columbia College 1956 & BUS 1957 and involved in many campus activities. I was at a...More

My husband and I decided to go here on Saturday night. We arrived around 4:45pm and were told about a 15 minute wait. Not too bad as the place was already crowded.
Not 10 minutes later our name was called and we were instructed where...More
This is the original authentic Dinosaur BBQ and although they have restaurants in a couple of other places, this is NOT a chain! If you are looking for superior BBQ you are in the right place. Yes, parking can be a bit tight and there...More

Went recently for lunch and the food was good. Keep the name in mind and if you don't want BBQ, go somewhere else. We wanted BBQ and they didn't disappoint. Service was good also. Parking is a nightmare. We had to pay $10 to pay...More
Always busy. If you are looking to go when it's not so busy, I've been there on a Friday at 4. People are not out of work yet and there's room. Dinner time every night is busy, no matter what time of year. Staff is great... More
Always busy. If you are looking to go when it's not so busy, I've been there on a Friday at 4. People are not out of work yet and there's room. Dinner time every night is busy, no matter what time of year. Staff is great about getting people moving. It is so worth it
