This was our second visit to Dino-BBQ and it was even better than the first. The range of food is such that I could go back nightly for a week and be fairly happy! The full rack is an effort but well worth it!

We decided - after reading good reviews - to head uptown and go to Dinosaur for dinner a couple of nights ago. We checked the website and it said open til 11pm.... so we braved the snow and headed out.

We were disappointed to arrive and be told the kitchen was closing early due to weather - but we could sit and eat at the bar but had to order almost immediately. If I am completely honest I wish we had left - as I felt rushed from ordering through to paying. The tender kept apologising and gave is - an excellent - free dessert to take home, but my food was cold and I had less than 20 minutes in which to order, receive and eat it.

I would like to try this place again on a good day as the flavours were great - it just was too rushed.

Visited whilst staying in NYC just before Christmas. Very busy with locals. Booked a table but still had to wait ten mins. Nothing for Veggies except a mushroom burger but that's to be expected! Everyone else said food was nice. Service was good. Nothing too pricey. Cab fare from Times Square was about $20.

Brought our friends from Europe who were visiting NYC, and this spot gave them an off the beaten path experience..American BBQ in a biker bar atmosphere, just like the original we love in Syracuse NY. Our server Sulie, was sweet, fast, polite, and the food was great. Easy to get a cab back and forth from mid town..don't let the Harlem location put you off...but bring the address, and let the driver know it's just off Riverside Drive...you won't eat as well for the $ in Manhattan in too many places. Thanks "Dino"!
