  • "One word...YUMMY!!!!! Friends have been raving about the food here and I can be a bit of a sceptic at times, therefore it took me waaaay too long to try it for myself. I could kick myself! I will definitely be a repeat customer and often!! lovedit.com"

  • "My family and I go the family meal, and it was sooo good. THought that quantity might mean lesser quality, but that was not at all the case. Chicken moist. Brisket and ribs delicious as well. Can't go wrong with this if you're more than a group of 4. We were 4 adults and only finished about half of the meal."

  • "Absolutely in love with this place. Was craving BBQ all week, the boyfriend brought me here for our Saturday night date. Great food at great prices. The BBQ sauce is some of the best I've ever had, and I grew up in the south! BE SURE TO MAKE A RESERVATION!!!"

  • "I came here with 4 people and we reserved dinner at 9 30 because I saw that at 10, tbere would be live music. We were waiting for the love band for a while. It ot started at 11 when we were leaving. That was very disappointing for the 4 of us. The food was yummy however donkey punch drink wasn't good at all. I didn't enjoy it however my friend did. Overall, next time I come here, I would appreciate if the live music started on time as advertised"

  • "The food here was decent, but the Harlem location is probably better. Decor & ambiance is what you expect - variety of seating and busy (but not overly crowded). I liked outdoor seating too. However, our server was absolutely atrocious. He rushed us & came & asked every 2 mins if we were ready, but was not helpful in answering questions - we weren't sure if he was new & didn't know or if he just didn't care. Then, he was so SLOW. Food took awhile, but that could've been the kitchen. However, it shouldn't take 15 mins to get a drink. Also, we ordered a beer when we got the food & it didn't come until we were about finished! We even asked a bartender for water & a beer but she "couldn't" and had to let Ted know. Overall, just meh."

  • "We had a 10:15 reservation. We waited for 10 mins. Had the usual. Swag sampler, ribs, m&c & BBQ beans. They did nit disappoint. The food was good. The fried green tomato was particularly delicious that night. My daughter was missing a fork. I asked a waitress. It was not her table, but don't they all have a common goal? She ignored me. Our guy was happy to get more than we needed. Except for the wait and the rude waitress we had a great time."

  • "This was my first time going and it was recommended and i don't regret going although i wouldn't want to go there for a romantic date maybe a date to talk and drink and relax or with a group of friends. The food was really good everything has that BBQ taste that i love. I ended up having to bring my 2yr old with me and it all worked out well its child friendly as far as high chairs and crayons (triangular ones that wont keep rolling off the table) and paper menu and a page to color. Great place noise level is kinda loud but who cares at least we don't have to whisper lol. Also I was told if you want a weekend reservation you have to book it a week ahead... shrugs... it was worth it."

  • "Went for a small birthday celebration. We've been to the Harlem location several times but this was the first time in Brooklyn. Nice to have one close to home. We knew it would be loud and lively. So no surprise there. Food was as good as could be. If you want a quiet place, this isn't the place for you. But if you want great food at great prices and can handle the volume, you won't want to miss this place. Word of advise: always make reservations, or you'll wait a very long time."

  • "Food was delicious. Do not go without a reservation be prepared to wait without one. If you have a reservation it is honored."

  • "I have lived in NYC (Queens) my whole life. And any city person would know that via public transportation, the hassle to get to Brooklyn is often reserved for special occasion. And for me, Dino BBQ was my special occasion. Dino BBQ had changed the definition of grilled meat for me forever and I now have a new found appreciation for the art that is BBQ. I was introduced one fateful night and was back within the week to show my family, and you know its serious when you want to show the family, am I right? Everything from the wait staff to the tender succulence that was everything on my plate rang in perfect harmony to my soul. Does this sound like an exaggeration? Maybe. Am I lying? No."

  • "The restaurant seemed to be having some service issues. Had to ask for water three times, silver wear twice. Not much interaction. Not even a weekend so afraid to see what it is like when it is busy. The food was good though."

  • "Six of us went for a birthday and we had a blast. Ribs were succulent and delicious. Great choice of draft beers, and terrific wings."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Best 'melt in your mouth' brisket! I had the Brisket platter and my companion had the pulled pork sandwich. Absolutely amazing. They have delicious side options. I tried the mac n cheese! Get a glass of their homemade lemonade! It came in a mason jar. Perfect for the scene. The restaurant is huge. Very spacious. Great for a fun date or group of friends and family. Such a fun lunch!!"

  • "This was our first time trying this restaurant and it definitely hit the spot! The high point of our meal were the fried green tomatoes (really great crispy batter), tender and flavorful brisket and pulled pork (not overly fatty, great sauce to meat ratio), and the chili garlic wings (medium heat). We had the swag platter for two and we liked the wings so much we ordered another serving of 6pcs. The ribs were tender with just enough pull but not falling apart, great smoke ring, my fiance thinks its great but not the best. Their bbq sauces were good tasting, not too sweet and not too vinegary. All in all a great meal!"

  • "Not as good as Fette Sau but definitely cheaper and proper restaurant seating. Great to go to with a group. I will definitely be back there!"

  • "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 think I've found my BBQ spot in Brooklyn! The ribs were delish and the donkey punch really kicked us!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."
