this is one of our must do's when in Rochester or at least passing through the area. The atmosphere is awesome and nothing better than gettting a window seat to be able to watch the water! Love the pulled pork and ribs, mac n cheese is the best!

When we take weekend away breaks and visit Rochester we always try and get to Dinosaur's Barbeque. We like to go on a weeknight or Sunday night to avoid any downtown traffic and go early to avoid what can be a wait. Waiting is not unpleasant as you can either wait on the patio or inside and watch all the hustle and bustle from the open kitchen.
Always had great servers and been able to sit down near the back with views of the river.
The Key LIme pie for desert is always for me.

I went there a few times on different occasions. The food is awesome and a 20-buck meal is enough for two meals for me. So great food with great price. I always get the one with everything, from beef to chicken and you can choose two sides too. I also love their BBQ sauce, different hot levels to choose from, and they're all very tasty.

Of course this place has a few downsides(but they have nothing to do with food): first of all, the location. It's in downtown so it's almost impossible to get a free parking spot and you have to wait for a while to get a table if you go there on weekends. Second of all, liquor is not recommended in this place. If you want something to drink, better head to a bar. The liquor here is way too expensive so you don't want to waste your money on this.

Overall, it's a awesome place to go!

This BBQ is delicious and you should definitely stop by here if you are in Rochester! Sometimes the wait can be really long- especially on weekends or if something is happening downtown. Best to go for lunch or if you're early enough to beat the dinner rush.

We visited this place for dinner. It's good to make a reservation beforehand if possible. You will see all types of people. They have an outside area for drinks . Our server was great and very friendly , they hustle in there. It's very busy, noisey and a little hot sting the summer. Foo was really good. They have a large bar area to hang with friends as watch a game. It's a fun Restuarant, very causal.
