This Place is Great!

The pulled pork is wonderful. Theyslow cook everything on their premises and do it well. We have tried the sameplace in Troy New York and it is not a good as this one in Rochester. The chicken and ribs is good, too. The outstanding side dishes are the mac and cheese and chili. Their corn bread is very good too.

The portions are adequate and fair for the price. The service is very good. There is usually a wait to get in but it well worth it. We always have a meal here when we visit my daughter at RIT.

When we visit Rochester, we always make a stop at Dinosaur (usually for take out as there is always a line up for tables). Their food is delicious! Our favourites,in order are, mac and cheese, chicken, and brisket.

I really like every dish here and ive been here several times and tried everything on the menu. my favorites are to start with the fried green pickles! then the beef brisket and i love all the side but my 2 favorites are the cajon corn and black bean with rice. cant beat the atmosphere here and the live music. although there is always a wait its well worth it!

Loved every minute at the Dinosaur. The food is amazing. The ribs are the best in the world. Oh, and the cornbread! Wow. They said the wait would be 30 minutes, but we were seated in 10. Service is great, too!

Mediocre at best. BBQ sauce tastes right out of a bottle, not something fresh and made on the premises. The Beale has much better food.
