    Fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere was buzzing and had a great vibe in there. We were greeted with a smile and shown straight to our table. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. He had a great sense of humour and with his charm and wit put us at ease straight away. We were rather overwhelmed by the menu - having lots of tasty options we found it hard to choose!! And sensing our confusion our waiter came over and offered advice and help and his own personal recommendations (the Korean BBQ Wings - WOW). The cocktails were delicious and the food was every bit as nice as it sounded. All for what we felt were very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would not hesitate to return next time we are in the area!

    great food, a bit noisy, and fairly priced. The best chicken wings so fat and juicy. Wango Tango sauce is really spicy and great kick. Try the honey mustard wings a bit milder. Love all the sides especially mac n cheese and crunchy cucumber salad, and Harlem potato salad.

    Having eaten a lot of BBQ recently in Austin, Dinosaur BBQ’s quality is right up there meat- and sides-wise. The atmosphere was comfortable and the tables spaced well to allow for conversation. I will definitely go back!

    My brother was visiting for Florida I had been saying I was going to try it the restaurant. So I took him there we so enjoyed our server I don't remember his name but he had locks. We enjoyed the food I wasn't crazy about the potato salad but everything else was good I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. I'm glad I went and enjoyed it I must try the one in Harlem now

    I was looking for a good authentic NYC ribs place to take my husband for his Birthday. My brother in law had told me about this place and we went. Overall the atmosphere was good. We were seated near the bar and it was a little loud for 3:00 pm in the afternoon. Our waiter did his best to make us feel good. Told us about the menu and did give his recommendations. I ordered a quarter portion of the ribs, my husband ordered 1/2 portion of the ribs, my twins each ordered the burgers (which were very tasty). Honestly we were a little disappointed with our ribs. from a scale of 1-10, we would give it a 6. The ribs were a bit dry, mine were very small, and we did order them well done, but just seemed to be super well done, the meat just wasn't what we were hoping for. Definitely did not look like the pictures I saw on line. I think as a place to hang out with your friends, have a beer, it is great! Not sure if we would go back for a family lunch. There are other places we would choose.

    It was a terrible experience this time because they did not have air conditioning on a 90 degree day and the manager refused to open the front doors for air. The ceiling fans did nothing to help the situation.

    Service was great. Very attentive. The ribs were great. Sides on the other hand contained a great deal of spice/black pepper. The overwhelming use of spice did not allow you to enjoy the Mac and cheese nor the mashed potatoes. Even the corn was overly spicey. Would I go back perhaps, just for the ribs and cornbread. And of course their amazing cheesecake.

    I actually love this restaurant! It’s inexpensive, great food and good service. However, this time the food and service was a little off. My date and I arrived around 9:30pm. We were waiting at the host stand to be seated and the man (dressed in a white suit) didn’t acknowledge or greet us. We ended up sitting at the bar. We ordered dinner, it arrived in 2 minutes. It tasted like it was made a couple of hours ago and warmed up slightly. The only good thing about this visit was the bartender and his great drinks. I’ll definitely be back. Hopefully it’s not as bad as this visit. See you soon!

    We were seated close to the bar. The workers who were not busy were socializing louder than the the patrons. The restaurant was not crowded inside and yet we waited much too long for our food. We had to remind the waiter to bring one of our drinks. The ribs were on the dry side compared to what we expected. We were disappointed.
