    Ignore the bad reviews

    I'm not a southerner, but I've been to texas, the carolinas, and louisiana and had BBQ in all three places. While dinosaur is not the best BBQ in the world, it's better than Acme, brother jimmy's and smoke (IMHO). The ribs are always superb and the sides are always excellent, especially the salt potatoes and collards (which are meat free!). The beef brisket and pulled pork are also very good. I've never had tough meat there!The chicken wings are in the running for best on the east coast. 20+ beers on tap, a cavernous space, and a great atmosphere more than make up for the noise and occasional spotty service. But for god's sake, it's a BBQ joint, don't expect four-seasons service. It's also REALLY popular, esp with locals and the columbia crowd so sometimes tables are in high demand... All in all I think the negative reviews are from people who've heard too much hype but the fact of the matter is this is a very unusual-for-new-york type of place with really good food.

    Subpar Service

    After a nice meal, of multiple drinks each, appetizers, entrees, and dessert, the manager came up to our table and said "we have this table reserved for another party in 4 minutes." He then proceeded to stand and watch us until we got up and left. Though he could have nicely asked us to leave, or mentioned that he really needed the table, or thanked us for our patronage, he chose instead to treat us as though we were second class. We were not rude, we had more than purchased enough food/drinks, and other tables in the area had been sitting for longer than us. This was the worst I have ever been treated at a restaurant in NYC. I will not return, nor will I recommend it to any of my friends.

    Syracuse-based bbq joint. Good for NY, but not good BBQ. If you've had Southern or Western bbq, prepare to be disappointed.

    Amazing Bar-B-Q

    Seriously, this place is amazing. I brought my parents, (65 yrs old), had corporate parties here, my 3 mth old baby was there last weel and all my close friends come to this place.... ribs are awesome, wings ridiculous, brisket fantastic, great beer from different breweries, and no the restaurant is not paying for me to say this. I like to see people enjoy a great meal and not crazy manhattan prices.

    Too far, too chewy

    Went last week and the beef ribs were inedible. The sides were greasy and tasteless - 4 for 4. To me sides often tell the hwole story. Also, getting there is a hassle. One guy at our table had good things to say, the rest of us agreed the place is alarmingly overrated.

    Was That Dinosaur Meat We Ate...

    ...cause it sure chewed like it was a few billion years old! Really though, the rib meat was not tender at all and was so dry it had no possibility of ever falling off the bone. The brisket was not any better. It was spongy requiring a great deal of chewing to break it down for swallowing. Thankfully we had all the BBQ sauce in the world at our table for moistening purposes. The Pulled Pork was just okay. The Drunken Spicy Shrimp were alright... again saved by the sauce that accompanied them. The positive: we had a real nice server who was cheerful and efficient. Glad we made a reservation as we would have wanted to cry had we waited the length that some people were waiting to eat this very sub-par BBQ. Needless to say, we will not return. Too bad we had high hopes on this one!

    Maybe its because I'm from Virigina, but I found the dinosaur barbeque experience to be one of the poorest of my life. The ribs were dry no flavor. I couldn't cut through it, it was like a rock. After waiting that long for a table, I was definitely disappointed.
