    Not recommended

    Alright, so my colleagues and I were absolutely taken! $45 in total for an undercook chicken that was the size of a pidgeon and 3 ribs that again were undercooked and fatty! I mean how do you undercook BBQ. The sausage seems to be the hot choice, so if, yes if I go again I may try that, but I highly doubt I will be there again. That being said, the stations were convenient and the atmosphere was great. This is a wonderful idea, but extremely over priced for the quality of food produced. I don't know what market prices they are going off of, but you can't honestly tell me that a pound of smoked ribs are is going to be $11 or pork shoulder for $18. I realize that this NYC, but come on!

    Why no reservations?

    I went with a group of friends on a Thursday night, and we tried to make reservations, but they don't take them for groups less than 8. This is too bad because we got there around eight, and didn't get seated until around 9:15. At which point they were already out of moist brisket, which had been my first choice. Nonetheless, the 'cue rocked. I had the jalapeno sausage and the lean brisket. Both were excellent, easily among the best barbeque in the city. The sweet tea was also excellent. I had the corn pudding for a side, and it was OK, but not worth the calories or cholesterol. I liked the atmosphere, and, unlike other reviewers, I felt that the station approach (think cafeteria/food court) to service actually worked well, and since you have your own food card, there's no splitting the check, you pay for what you ordered. I'd eat here again in a heartbeat, but I just worry about the wait.

    mixed bag

    The ordering process is creative but could be inconvenient - you're given a meal ticket & order the food at various stations (meat, side, beverage) on your own. Not a big deal if the restaurant is not crowded. But let's say you've waited more than 20-25 minutes for a table on a busy night then wait in more lines to order the food, it could get annoying. The jalapeno sausage was out of this world. Bourban mashed sweet potatoes paired well with the BBQ. I was seated downstairs where the atmosphere was lively and authentically southern. Disappointingly, the regular sausage, pork ribs, and lean brisket were average. Service was mediocre, but it's worth noting some wait staff were very friendly. Overall, a mixed bag of experience on food, service, value and atmosphere.

    disappointing

    maybe it's authentic but the food was cold by the time we ate it off the paper(no plates); ribs seemed overcooked, brisket was mostly fat(we did order the fatty one); sides were just ok--best was the cole slaw and the mac and cheese wasn't toobad; sodas were overpriced; dinner for two was $60 bucks--no dessert or coffee.

    From a Texas Native

    I was born and raised in Texas and have been in the city for 8 years. I have tried almost every BBQ place that has opened and had settled on Dinosaur as my favorite. We went to Hill Country Friday night and were impressed. The lean brisket, beef shoulder and sausage were our favorites. If you want ribs, you are going to have to haul your behind to Dinosaur becasue thet certainly have the best is the city still. The Mac and Cheese at Hill Country was a big dissappointment but the corn dish MORE than made up for it!

    Great Mains, the rest will follow

    Went early Saturday night & had an assortment of meat. The place was not overly busy yet, but an hour later there was a wait & the place is cavernous. The brisket was as good as it gets, the prime rib can go toe-to-toe with any NY steakhouse, the ribs were gargantuan & as tasty as any other bbq house in NY. The Kruetz Market sausage was very good, but the spicy one was too hot. The sides need some work, but the corn pudding was really good. The bean cassarole needed salt, the sweet picles were great. The cole slaw was a little flat, but with a little improvement will be good. The system is fine and cost wise is about the same as every other bbq joint in the city. The place is also designed very well and as clean as a whistle. We will be back to try more things....Service was friendly & efficient. The desserts are a weak spot & will need to find there way, but the bar really works well.
