My husband, son and I ate at the Dinosaur Barbeque while visiting the campus of Syracuse University. "Bikers, Barbeque and Blues" are what they are noted for. Excellent barbequed ribs, beans and corn bread. Waited about 20 minutes for a table on a Thursday night. Highly recommend this place for the experience and great food ....

My family loves Dinosaur BBQ! Yes, it's noisy. Yes, there are a lot of bikers. Big deal. If you are going for the food, you will not be disappointed! Try the combo platters for a taste of everything Dino has to offer. If you like BBQ, this is a must -try.

I've been going to Dino since it opened and it just seemed like the food quality became inconsistent over the years. That's why I can't give it 5 Stars. I will say that they have the best BBQ in the Northeast and it's very addictive.

This is a joint primarily catering to bikers, and this fact will be shoved down your throat even before you enter. Went with family, had to wait an hour. The staff is obnoxious and they wear it like a badge of pride. We were seated outside on the sidewalk, almost in the road...and were forced to inhale smoke from people smoking right next to us....UGHHHH! Then they started playing what sounded like (incredibly bad) live music over the speaker. The food was quite good (especially the ribs!!), but the bad/rude service, the trashy atmosphere and the long wait make you wonder if it's really worth it.
