being from syracuse, eating at a dinosaur out of town is an experience. the decor and food are much like home, but the ambiance just isn't there. not a bad place to eat, though. try it. you'll like it.

We´re always happy being in Rochester and visiting the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que! Fried green tomatoes, famous corn bread, excellent long smoked ribs, wide choice of beers on tap and in bottles. And great, cool&warm atmosphere, a little bit wild west, a little bit rock´n´roll, a little bit bikers shelter. The meal here is a must when you arrive to Rochester! And best souvenir? Temporary tatoo sticker and tasty Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in plastic bottle to go and use at home!

What's not to like, rib sticking food in a fun filled atmosphere. Bar-b-que like ti should be in a biker bar by the river. Very friendly wait staff that takes no guff from the customer's, all done in fun. Great food, great digs, great people - you won;t be disappointed or leave empty. Enjoy!

I've dined here twice each time I visited Rochester. I highly recommend it for a cool, casual dinner or lunch. The food is really good, and I like the beer flights. A great value, too!

I returned to the DInosaur with out-of-town guests. Once again, it did not disappoint! I had the rib, chicken and briscuit combo. It was mouth watering. I tried a side a that I have never had, the collard greens. It was a real treat! The service was excellent and the food could not be better. There were enough left overs from the large portions that I was able to have 2 more lunches out of it. It is worth the trip!
