We are never disappointed at Dinosaurs. Great BBQ, a broad selection of appetizers and entrees to choose from and a very welcoming and casual environment. A special shout out this time to the young man, Devon, who was our waiter. He was attentive, very knowledgeable with regard to the menu options and a very friendly addition to our evening. I will specifically ask to be seated in his section the next time we return.

This is the best BBQ place in Brooklyn. Hands down. Incredible service. The wings are the best in the biz. They go above and beyond. Unreal.

The server was kind of bad...he kept forgetting things, and wasn’t writing anything down, so my order was messed up. The swag platter was great, but everything else kind of fell flat.

Food was great with very decent size portions for a NY restaurant. Waited a few minutes before someone came over to table after initially being seated, but service was good afterwards. Table wasn't wiped down(few crumbs), but I've seen worse. Definitely can't wait to go back next time we are in Brooklyn.

The food was amazing ! There was a live band playing which was cool. The place was packed but I’m not complaining. Only thing I didn’t like is that some of the table were really close together. But I had a great time here I’ll definitely be back !!

When you walk in there are great vibes and great music and you think. " this is great". However, the food is sub par. I didn't like anything I tried. Very disappointing. On top of that my server ignored me.

We were told there were no ribs available once we were seated. I ordered something I would not normally order as a result and did not like it. Staff was quite accommodating and professional.

This was my second time visiting this restaurant with my family. Last year we had a great time and the food was amazing; this year we were all a bit disappointed. Highlights: One order of catfish came out overcooked (the waiter took it back and exchanged it, thank you); the margarita that was not tasty and in a half-filled glass; the macaroni and cheese was very salty; and there was a very limited selection of desserts. They were out of the cheesecake so we all split a key lime pie. Sorry, this was a fail. We likely will not return next year for my birthday.

Used to be our favorite BBQ place in Brooklyn, but now it went downhill.
Went there in the Fall '17 with a group and everyone's food was burnt, over salted and cold when brought to us. Decided to give it another chance, but, unfortunately, it was exactly the same thing. No more Dino for us, at least not this location.
