    What a place!!

    Went early for lunch on a weds. Seated right away! We started with the wings. They were amazing. Just amazing! I had the Pork Sket sandwich. The meat was delicious. So much flavor in the beef. My friend had the hot lunch for like $6. It was a total steal. The sides of Mac and Beans was great, but the fried rice and Potato salad was off the charts! I've never had Potato salad with that much flavor. Dinosaur BBQ is not for everyone, but there's a reason they're doing the business they're doing. If you want boring sides then head to Hill Country or Wildwood.

    Not what it used to be...

    I've been meaning to get to Dinosaur for sometime now, and finally did today for lunch. Here's how it went. I started with the SOLO SWAG, which is an appitizer sampler for one. (It comes larger.) $5.95 got me: 4 shrimp - OK, but boring 1 green tomato - very good 1 deviled egg - very good 1 wing - (actually a leg). Excellent, BUT it was a little too close to being underdone to suit me. At the thickest part, it was slightly pink. Chicken can be a little tricky. Overdone and it's dried out; underdone and you die.   Next, the TRES HOMBRE bbq sampler, $18.95. It consisted of 4 items plus two very small sides: Pulled Pork - boring. Most of the flavor came from the drizzle of bbq sauce they'd topped it with. Brisket - 2 slices lean, 2 deckle. Not very good. Hill Country & others have far better. One lean slice was tough enough that I left it behind.   4 Ribs - meh. Nice smoke flavor, but have had better lots of places. They were reasonably tender, but not falling off the bone. Frankly, my local hole in the wall Chinese does ribs just as good at half the price, though obviously a different flavor.   Beans - about 3 Tablespoons. Nothing to write home about. Maybe someone's had burnt ends, but mine didn't.   New Potatoes (3) in garlic butter. These seem to have replaced the Syracuse Salt potatoes. OK, but badly underseasoned.   With one soda, & tax & tip, it totalled out at $35.00 - not a cheap lunch!  The best thing Dinosaur had was the wait staff. They were VERY pleasant and attentive. Perhaps the best thing was they didn't seem to care who's "table" you were at. Ask anyone & it was taken care of. I didn't try the chicken, but if the wings are any indicator, it's probably very, very good. Actually, I wish I'd had that and a plate of eggs. Would have cut my bill in half as well. Dinosaur is a real pain for me to get to. Add in the mediocre food, and I don't see myself going back. A recent review mentions that Dinosaur has changed hands. Perhaps that's the reason for far better reviews a couple of years ago.

    Not worth it

    Not worth the wait--have heard great things about this place, but the food did not live up to the expectations. The chicken was good, but the brisket was dry. Didn't enjoy the sides either...skip it and go to Hill Country.

    Fantastic BBQ!!!

    As we approached the restaurant the aroma of BBQ sauce was heavy in the air. We all quickly got very excited. What I didn't know before we got there was that you can make reservations, I will do this next time. We waited probably an hour but it wasn't bad since we got seats at the bar and they had like 40 beers available. The guys even ordered flights of 4 different beer samples. We finally were seated and right away noticed the different sauce options on the table. The "Sensuous" sauce was a huge hit. We ordered a full rack of baby back ribs, korean style beef ribs, and pulled pork. We also got sides: mac & cheese, baked beans, fries, cole slaw, fried rice, salt potatoes, and corn bread. The majority winner was the korean beef ribs. They had a great flavor very similar to the best bbq I have had in Korea town. I also really enjoyed the regular ribs a lot. The mac & cheese was absolutely amazing. The cheese was thick, rich, and creamy. I would highly suggest this side to complement your meal. We were all STUFFED after dinner. Funny enough, the waiter hands us a dessert menu and we ask, "Does anyone actually have room for dessert?" He said about 1-2% order it!

    not worth the wait

    We arrived on a Saturday at 5:30 and told the wait time would be from an hour to an hour and 15 min., we decied to wait since we really wanted to try the place. Over 2 hours later we were seated. The food is mediocre. The brisket was tough and the ribs were fatty and not well done enough. The mac and cheese was nothing special. They might be better if the place wasn't so packed. They are a victim of thier own success. Go someplace else.

    Mean Waitress

    we went for a bday party at 6pm on a Thurs. i made reservations for 13. At first they gave us a problem with seating because not everyone was there even after I explained during the confirmation call that it was a SURPRISE and so of course the celebrant and I would not be there right away. anyway, the food was only ok. The ribs were too fatty (not much meat) and the mac and cheese was a little too spicy. the chicken wings were tasty but again nothing special. The best thing we ate were the deviled eggs. The drinks were good and strong. The major problem i had was with our waitress who I guess knew she was going to get 20% gratuity no matter what. She snapped at everyone to pay attention when she came out with the food AND she even hit my friend on the head with her tray - it was HARD and she barely apologized. By the time it was time for dessert the bday celebrant who is NOT shy asked her what her problem was and i guess that got the waitress scared and she knocked off the $1 per person charge since we brought our own cake. This restaurant is supposed to be a fun bbq joint and is not a place for snobby waitresses. All 13 of us even ordered our own entrees and plenty of drinks so its not like we were being cheap. The busboys were super nice and brought us containers to take our food home. We left unsatisfied with the food and pissed at the waitress. All 13 of us will NOT be returning.
