“Great food, service, and atmosphere”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Lemonades came as fast as I emptied them. This was right after long walks in NYC so was very thirsty. Atmosphere felt safe and nice family oriented section separate from bar area :) Not in a great neighborhood, but they stand out from the surroundings.

“Good Pulled Pork”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Close to the Prudential Center in downtown Newark. Went there after a Rush concert, place was packed. The BBQ pulled pork and fries hit the spot after watching the boys rock for 3 plus hours. Everyone ( food side and bar ) was friendly.

“Fabulous Food!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We held a 30th surprise party at our home for our son today and had food from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Newark, New Jersey deliver the food. Not only was the food plentiful and beyond delicious but every guest at the party commented on how fabulous it was!!!! I am 100% thrilled with my decision and would absolutely order from them again!

“Great BBQue, good addition to Newark”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I went here on a recommendation of a friend who has eaten at another of their restaurants.
The food was great, meat nicely smoked and moist with a tasty rub, There were two different sauces on the table, one more of a traditional vinegar based and the other a fruity version.
Service was very good and freindly.
There are enough dishes that are vegetarian so that one of my companions who is a vegetarian was very happy and full.
Ribs are their main meat but the brisket is also excellent, the fried green tomatos are also good as a side.
Only gripes (and they are small) were the greeters were slow and disorganized leaving us standing there for a while as they figured things out and the level of background noise was too high making any normal conversation impossible so we had to yell at each other.

Just a warning: as its next to teh Prudential Center I've been told by locals that it becomes very crowded on nights when something is going on at the arena.;

I will go back again as the food was that good.
