Great BBQ, long wait, rushed meal – If you are a fan of BBQ, then you will really enjoy the food at Dinosaur. Unfortunately it is extremely crowded, service is on the rude side. When I ate there (dined is too nice a word such this place) after we waited well over an hour for a table they rushed us out almost as soon as our meals were served. I would never go back and I don't recommend it to anyone.
I'd Open the door, eat off the floor just to get BBQ at the dinosaur. The food is great and atmostphere is cool with the mixture of bikers and businessmen.
Dinosaur is the best – Dinosaur BBQ has the best BBQ around. The only problem is the food is so good you can expect a half hour to an hour wait on a weeknight. On a Friday or Saturday night it will be packed and can take a very long time to get a table.
However, it's worth it. The best thing to do is go to the bar, grab a seat (you may have to wait till someone leaves -- be prepared to swoop in), and just enjoy the music, atmosphere, and great beer...
Best BBQ pork ribs! Ever! – What is there to say that hasn't already been said. Cool atmosphere, best blues music in the city, real bikers, awesome food. Come by in the summer and sit outside. Watch some incredible bikes pull up. Come by in the winter for a meal that'll stick to ya ribs.
And buy the book...the recipes come out great too.
A Crime Not To Eat Here – In all honesty, if you are anywhere within a 50 mile radius of this Syracuse treasure and don't make you way here, you are missing out.
It goes without saying that Dino's ribs are, by far, the best that I've ever had. My friends and I are on a constant quest to find better ones and always fail. The side dishes are varied but their pasta salad is the absolute best. If you want to get a good sampling of their fine meats, order the Tres Hombre (sp?). You'll get a portion of sliced steak, pulled pork and a quarter rack of their ribs.
Don't bother with trying for reservations. They don't take 'em. Try to go on a Saturday for dinner and you're best bet is to put your name down, walk over to a pub in nearby Armory Square, and return. It's well worth it.
1300 MI. AWAY – TO EVERYONE LUCKY ENOUGH TO LIVE CLOSE LUCKY YOU. YOU WOULD THINK I COULD FIND ANY B.B.Q TO COME CLOSE, IN THE SOUTH ...NOT!!!! I TAKE MY YEARLY TREC. TO YOUR AREA SO I CAN EAT DINO. B.B.Q FOR FIVE DAYS. AND THEN HEAD HOME IN HOPES OF MY SHIPMENT OF YOUR SAUSE MAKES IT......MAY-BE ONE DAY DINO'S. IN ORLANDO?
Best Blues, Booze and BBQ – Absolutely the best food anywhere. I have been to the best the siuth has to offer but when I visited Syracuse on business and wandered into the Dinosaur for the first time I though I'd died and gone to BBQ heaven.
