Every year we do a holiday "dinner" here and grab one of the high tables near the bar, which allows for people watching, view of the TVs and more room if you ask me. We order buckets of beer and meat.....wings, ribs, brisket, pulled prok.....and maybe someone breaks down and orders a side. The wings are really good and not greasy, I tihnk they bake them(?), the ribs fall off the bone and the pulled pork was really moist and flavorful (the brisket never made its way to my end of the table). The waitress kept the buckets full all noght long. At the end of the night, the damage was reasonable, everyone was full and feeling in the holiday spirit. Can't wait until next year.

Very lively, very "happening." Up at the western edge of 125th Street, you can take the 1 train to get there.
Lots of people, high "fun" level, good food. Loud, so you don't want to come here for intimate conversation...indeed, probably not much conversation at all.
Mostly it is the atmosphere that brings people, although the food is good. If you want to join tons of young New Yorkers, this is one of the places,

Its on 700 W. 125th St… So I had to specially go there… I wasn't disappointed!
It was worth it. Its a great place for ribs (and other BBQ stuff).
I sat at the bar, the bartender was nice and helpful, the ribs arrived quickly (the dry kind of ribs), and were truly superb (the sides were not as good).
I couldn't drink (they have a huge range of tempting drinks to choose from), so I left a soon as I finished eating..
Will certainly return!

This is the most crowded bbq place in NY for good reason. While I love Virgil's as well, Dinosaur has the best food, atmosphere and service available. It never disappoints.

For our first night in New York we headed to Dino's BBQ restaurant after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor. All four of our family ordered the spareribs with different sides and boy were we in for a treat. They were by far the best ribs we've ever had, absolutely fantastic. And the sides! The beans were the best - I would loved to have walked out with the recipe.

Definitely worth the visit.
