We chose to eat here after the Nets v. Bulls Game 7. We called ahead and they said if we were there by 11:00pm we could still be seated, and we arrived ten minutes to. There was a short wait for a table, but it was Saturday night so there was a live band, which didn't make the wait bad. We started with the appetizer of Creole Spiced Deviled Eggs, which were realy good and mildly spicey, and chose to get the "Sweetheart Deal" which is a full rack of ribs and 4 sides. The ribs were REALLY good (little to no sauce needed) and it was a true full slab, they do have a few different sauces at the table if you like. We choose french fries (can never go wrong with fries), mac n cheese, baked beans & whipped sweet potatoes. The other sides were just okay, but they had THE BEST mac n cheese I have ever eaten! Tasted like they put some sort of herbs in it or maybe just the variety of cheeses they used, but it was excellent! Would definitely go back.

Ate here with family during recent visit to New York. The ribs are excellent, full of flavor and very meaty. The sides are awesome- mac and cheese and salted potatoes were my favorite. Bring your appetite because the portions are huge. The waitress was very sweet and constantly checked on us. I'm not sure what subway station a previous reviewer walked from, but we only walked about 3 blocks and never felt uneasy with the neighborhood. It is located right across the street from The Cotton Club near the water.

Our concierge recommended that we travel to 125th on the NY subway (very easy) and "just head to the water, past the Cotton Club and you'll see Dino's" It was a short walk past a shockingly small Cotton Club, then to Dino's southern BBQ style restaurant. We were there on a Tuesday, arrived at 7pm and was told that there was a 1.5 hr wait. We went to the bar and managed to snag a table in the bar where we ordered good, fall-off-the-bones awesome BBQ. Nice sides. Better still, the bar allowed us to order food and finish it, just as our name was being called for the dining room! Enjoy

I decided to try something different and I got the BBQ Salmon. It was very tasty, yet light. Something worth trying for sure!

We were meant to go here for lunch but ended up having dinner here - the food was excellent but it's not terribly close to the subway stop and at night it was a bit daunting not knowing exactly where we were going - we took a taxi back to our hotel. We had a mixed starter with fried green tomatos which was delicious and the ribs were really tasty - worth the trip!
