    A Diamond in the Ruff!

    I heard about this place from my husband who's company had take out from there last week. We went there late Sunday night. It was a little wait for a table, but I really just wanted to get home. We got take out instead. The atmosphere is cute like Harpo's Junk Joint in The Color Purple. We got the Family meal for 5 - 7 people to share w/my parents. Loved every bite. I enjoy finding new places to eat and this is a good one! We drove all the way from White Plains, NY and I will definitely be going back to get a table next time. They also have entertainment sometimes.

    Salt Overdose...

    We love the wings here but won't be back too often because the meats are so salty! The brisket is quite well done but ribs are usually dry... It's still a fun place to hang out with a group of friends who do not mind the crazy wait, slow service and salt overdose.

    Best BBQ In Manhattan

    I'm a BBQ fan and this place is the best in Manhattan. The food is great and the prices are unbelievable. even if you figure in the cab rides to get there and back it's still a good deal. The atmosphere is fun and waiting isn't the worst thing in the world. We stood in the bar for a little while and had a couple beers which were about $4 each. Everyone there was very nice. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed, but it was a friday night and 100's of people wanted to eat there.

    A last time for everything

    Saturday afternoon lunch -- food was served cold. Not even warm. It was inedible. They were nice about bringing a fresh plate but the damage had already been done. Also of note-- the server told me most of the food is premade, making it easier for the kitchen to just heat it and serve. Why would anyone want that? Won't be back, which is a disappointment.

    One timers just don't get it

    Dinosaur BBQ has amazing Ribs. An amazing selection of beers on tap at all times. (I believe it even dips into the 3 digits on the amounts but don't quote me on that one) I have been going there for years. The staff has a hard time seating and serving people on weekends because it's a weekend! The demand is SO high, and the staff do a great job with what they have. If you wanted to test the quality of their food and service in a less hectec time, go on a weekday afternoon! There's still plenty of customers there at all times, but that's when those who feel like dinosaur bbq is too hectic will feel like it's jsut busy, but not crowded. Lovely atmosphere, great food. And as far as portion size goes, I have never had a problem! I know very few who get a real BBQ plate, with 2 sides (try the caisson corn) and bread, a few real beers off tap that they can truly enjoy, and walk away hungry! So If you had a bad time there once, you're one in a million! Try her again!

    Why the hype??

    The inventive menu names, large variety, great atmosphere, plus the friendly and (mostly) attentive staff definitely made the out-of-the-way locale doable. I wanted to start off with their Nice Tea (blueberry stoli-style sweet tea). They were out. But they have Ommegang Abbey Ale on tap! That’s super hard to find in the States. So I ordered it. 20 minutes later the waitress comes back to tell me they’re out of that as well. Strike two, y’all! But I pressed my luck & ordered the Pom Bomb: a brazilian rum drink. Success! Kinda. Great flavor and decently heavy-handed pour. But it cost $8 for a half-pint glass which was mostly filled with ice. I was done in a few sips. Someone else ordered a Sangria and the Donkey Punch (gotta love the name!). They were both served in a pint glass with moderate ice. The Manhattans others ordered were served in standard-size stemless martini glasses. So I’d stick with other drinks…or chose from their wide selection of draft beer, which is only $6 a pint or $21 for a big pitcher. We decided to get the $20 swag sampler for the table. They say it serves four. They must have meant 4 toddlers. It came with 6 Spicy Shrimp (excellent flavor!), 4 Chicken Wings (very good!), 4 Fried Green Tomatoes (bland batter and the same circumference as the bottom of a pint glass), and 4 deviled eggs (awesome!). We had to order a second. Overall good cuisine but no swag due to the disproportion to the cost. Due to the small app I went big on the main course. I ordered the Ode to Elgin (sausage, ¼ rack of ribs, brisket, cornbread, and two sides – I chose mac & cheese and whipped sweet potatoes with spicy nut topping). Good amount of food for the money ($19). But the sausage was oddly seasoned. The brisket was moist enough but fatty and not super flavorful. The cornbread was so-so. The mac & cheese was bland, except for the cayenne pepper they put on top (to think of it, most of their idea of spicy seemed to be ‘sprinkle cayenne on top’). The whipped sweets had something off with the seasoning…and the nut topping, which was good, was sparse. I did love the ribs, though. And their Wango Tango Habañero BBQ Sauce was good. I left full but wasn’t pleased with what I received for $45 bucks (including tax & tip). I’d go back for a good friend’s function, sticking to the ribs or trying the catfish...but they’d really have to be a good friend for me to bang out that kind of cash for the product.

    Fast Food

    I couldn’t wait to check out Dinosaur’s bbq... I had totally high expectations... especially with so many great reviews. I went around 5:00pm... sat @ the bar. Loved the bar, music, atmosphere... was already planning my summer Sundays around this place… but when the plates were put down I wasn't too certain anymore... The food arrived lukewarm... The bartender apologized and said he would take care of it… he brought back the same dish… the two small wings were burnt… not even worth eating… totally disappointing… the ribs were o.k., but they were fatty... try eating that cold!!! The portions were also small... This is nothing but a fast food restaurant!!! Maybe worse...I will try out other bbq restaurants in Manhattan before making the trip here... not worth it... please let me know if it was just an off day because I am totally disappointed... honestly I think fast food would taste better than this!
