  • "Although it's at a walking distance from where I live, it was my first time at Dinosaur. I have to say that food is REALLY good! I don't eat BBQ/ribs/brisket that often... Fried green tomatoes are phenomenal. The burger was fantastic, perfectly cooked and very juicy. The place is very crowded and loud though, definitely not a relaxing environment. At some point, I will go back."

  • "I sat down expecting a very good dinner experience and to tell you it was flat. The rib were subpar, sauce was good, wasn't a fan of the Mac &cheese and drinks were fine. Although I do not feel I have to come here again because of how pricy it was to eat also I did not feel I got my money's worth but the service was nice."

  • "Looking forward having Sunday brunch with family and friends that's coming on town to visit. The outdoors is nice to have birthday celebration party"

  • "Does not compare to other locations. Cornbread replaced with Portuguese roll, iceberg lettuce wedge, was not even close to a wedge - wilted leafs and the waitress never once checked on us. She then took our plates without even asking if we were done. The meat was good and the beer cold - the only positives."

  • "I heard so much about this place and it was better than I imagined! The food was great, we ordered most of the menu and had lots of leftovers to bring home (which i loved). Great experience, cant wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Firstly our waitress took forever to attend our table, secondly it took her 20 min. after we ordered our food for her to tell us that they were out of brisket and grilled chicken. It was my birthday and I chose Dinosaurs to celebrate my special day, but I was not happy at the end of my special Day."

  • "It as very convenient to have reservations- the wait was about an hour and fifteen minutes for those who didn't. Service was great. Drinks were a little too strong. two thumbs up."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I've been here a few times and I lobe the food but each time I go, the wait time for a table is ridiculously long. An hour and a half to two hours for a table??? So I used the open table app for reservations hoping that we would be seated quicker, nope! My reservation was for 9:15 and we didn't get seated until 9:50-10 after asking them twice about a table. Hopefully they can work on managing their wait time better because I love this place. The food is awesome, the live bands are hot and the drinks are great. Just need better wait time"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food is usually great whenever I visit but it wasn't so great that night. Food didn't taste fresh and the portions were smaller than usual. It was a bit disappointing because I'd been boasting about how great the food is, but my party didn't get to experience that. I'd still refer people there because everyone's entitled to a bad day every once in a while.. even my favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "THE WINGS ARE AMAZING. I love the wango tango ones. No matter how often I got them, they always come out perfect and juicy. If you have any fewer than 6 people, do not get the family platter if you don't want to take food home. We had 5, and every person went home with a full box of food. The mac and cheese and homemade lemonade are also to die for."

  • "We had a lovely time. The service was very quick, knowledgable and nice. The food was very good, everything was delicious. Loved the ambiance and having kids I was happy to see the balance between "Hot Spot" and family friendly local restaurant. Would definitely refer friends and plan to take the family there before the summer is over."

  • "I use to go to the one out in Harlem, so I am really glad it is in Brooklyn even though I live in Queens. It is in a great location becasue I was able to find parking quickly. The noise is really loud so it was very hard to hear my date. Our waiter was nice and moved quickly and the food was tasty. Overall experience is very good and I would definitely come back again."

  • "I stopped at the light on Union street & glanced to my right & I had to do a double take! I had no idea that Dino bbq (that's what I call it) was in Brooklyn. Well 2 days before Father's Day my wonderful girlfriend suggested we go there. I was a little reluctant because I knew it would be crowded. But I reserved a table online, arrived at 11:30am & it was pretty empty. Our waitress was efficient, courteous & simply AMAZING! Okay now to the food. The deviled eggs, smoked sausage on crackers & fried green tomatoes was INSANE! In a good way of course. The white lightening (think that's the name) was delicious! I also enjoyed the pulled pork, ribs, brisket, collard greens (OMG) like my grand mas. You have to go there & experience it!"

  • "Our Fathers Day dinner was excellent. My husband my 3 year old son and my 11 year old daughter and myself all greatly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be back again. We had reservations and were seated right away and served right away which is great with kids."

  • "Dinosaur BBQ would have a perfect fit in the Orlando area. The food is great, its a large restaurant and its good family fun. I came here for fathers day along with my brother in laws family. If you love good brisket and ribs this is spot."

  • "I would love to give it another star because our waitress was a darling, but the food was uneven. The appetizers were better than the main courses, that to me is a problem. I would strongly recommend the regular fried green tomatoes, mild BBQ wings and the poutine fries, they were all delicious and flavorful. The rack of ribs we shared were on the dry and flavorless side, if you want to try it, be generous with the BBQ sauce they supplied. The brisket were fatty and tender, but again flavorless. The sides like the cole slaw and mash potatoes have a nice peppery kick, so be careful if you don't like spicy. We asked for extra corn bread which were served warm & moist, but became dry when cooled. Service was attentive w/o being intrusive."

  • "Had a great BBQ dinner, food and service was outstanding. Had a reservation for 5 and got to our table as soon as we came in. All of the combo dinners are awesome, great to sample with a nice portion of meaty ribs. I've been there 3 times and never disappointed."

  • "My hubby and I wanted to take my mom out for a late lunch. I knew she would enjoy Dinosaur BBQ so I attempted to make reservations at the Harlem location on a Saturday afternoon. Needless to say, I couldn't get a table there & wasn't too particular about the possibility of a two hour wait, so I opted to try the Brooklyn locale. I was able to book our table within the hour. Awesome! We arrived about 15 minutes ahead of time but were seated immediately. The 3 of us enjoyed The Swag appetizer for 4. Our server was very attentive & friendly. The ribs are thebomb.com! Between the three of us, we had sides of baked beans, cole slaw, mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey neck greens and bbq fried rice. All of them were hot, fresh, delicious. "

  • "Took my cousin here as he was visiting from Texas and hates barbecue. He was impressed by the ribs, Mac and cheese and black eye peas. I benefited from flights of beer and the Wango Tango wings. I would have preferred my food piping hot as opposed to warm but the service was impeccable. I have been to Dinosaur in Syracuse, Rochester, Albany and Manhattan and I am impressed by the way the character of the brand extends itself at at each location. "

  • "Awesome experience. Took my 25 year old grandson on his visit here. 50 years apart but right for both of us. Not crowded at noon so if one has the latitude to gonthen, there is no wait!"
