Half the dining room is held open for walk-in guests.
they did a backyard barbeque for a wedding reception it was wonderful and plenty for the next morning
Was there for lunchtime....it was good. The place did not have many people at the time...@1:30.
the ribs were a little over done but delicious. A little loud for our taste but the service and ambience were excellent. The best southern style greens I've had north of Georgia! Looking forward to our next visit to try more of the menu. The sharing menu is a great value.
the food was hot and the waitress was very helpful Got us what we needed
Turned into a chain, not very good. Went to the original location in Rochester years ago and loved it. Buffalo location doesn't compare. No charm, doesn't have that bluesy Bbq feel, food not as good. Very disappointing. Felt like an Applebees or Fridays.
Food was bomb
We were seated promptly and waited on just as quick by our waitress but food took awhile to come out. When the food did come out some of our entrees were cold when they should of been hot and our bbq ribs were so burnt on the outside that there wasnt any sauce left on them. Very disappointing to say the least. Portion sizes were small but pretty good to the taste. I’m glad I checked my bill before paying because our waitress put an additional entree on our bill. Which she knew about but said she forgot to take it off????
Food was fabulous. Smoked BBQ Chicken-Awesome; French Fries-Fine; Service-Great. So accommodating-we were stuck in traffic and we called to tell them that we would be late for our reservation and they said "No problem" and meant it. They graciously held our table on a busy, Theater Friday night. Two thumbs up.
We came here for the first time before a show at sheas and we were not disappointed! Our meal was amazing - Cuban sandwich with fries and Cajun corn. Delicious! Waiter was very attentive and food didn’t take long to come out at all. We will definitely be back!
We decided to take my parents from out of town to Dinosaur for dinner. My father was having surgery at Roswell Park the next day so he was going to have to fast for a while. The food was fast and delicious. The only complaint I would have is that it was noisy. Not a quiet place but to be expected with a fun atmosphere.
Last minute reservation for 5 on a Saturday night. Seated right on time and service was prompt. Finished our meal just as a
2 person live band was starting- if we didn’t have to go- would have stayed band was good and not too loud. We had Ribs, wings, brisket, and sides. Food was great
Recital weekend with family
Made a reservation for my birthday dinner. I order ribs and pulled pork with mac and cheese. I LOVE ribs but this were disgusting! The pulled pork was not bad( need more bbq) and the mac?! If you are going to have it spicy, you should DEFINITELY mark it on the menu!! The mac and cheese was awful.
The server. Ha. Barely checked on us, when taking our orders he was rude and rushed us. When we asked for things he never returned back with them.
Thanks for the “wonderful” birthday dinner.
Will not be returning and I will not be recommending this place to anyone.
$200 dollars down the drain!!!
Had a small (7) person business dinner here. Food was great and service was outstanding. Definitely will go back.
10 out of 10, we’d do it again. No complaints, great service and great bbq.
Hit the spot!! So good! Waitress was sweet!! Food was delicious! Atmosphere was great as it was a beautiful day out so we sat outside. Times in the past, we have eaten inside and it was a tad noisy. We really enjoyed sitting outside!
Just overall ok - not sure if it was just a slow night but it was about half empty. Ladies had some mixed drinks which they said were very good, and guys had their Apehanger beer which was tasty. We had poutine as a starter which was alright.
Food came out pretty quickly. Pork was good and delicious, but the sides here have seen better days. Mac and cheese was dry and the potato salad was just ok. I swear they used to have a good Mac salad but it appears they took that off the menu.
Not a bad experience by any means but nothing about this meal wanted me to come back again. Looks like the wow factor that this place had when it first opened has died down. Need to update their game on their sides.
Food was good service was better. Waiter was friendly and accommodating. Knowledgeable about the food and outgoing.
Birthday they brought free pie is was awesome
BBQ food was overcooked, portions good, sides were good.
They are very knowledgeable about gluten free. Your meal comes out on a red plate so everyone in the kitchen is aware! The food is so delicious! I would eat everyday if I could!
Food, atmosphere, service, everything was outstanding. They excel at everything a BBQ joint should do well. Great Beer selection.
Food and service were great. Not our first time and again was very pleased
Food was great , service good
Great service ! Great food. Staff was very nice and polite Restaurant was a clean and fun environment for the whole family!
I brought my husband there for his Birthday. Along we brought our daughter, son-in-law and their twins. The twins are not quite a year old, but we got the greatest service there. High chairs available, and a special menu for them to eat. The food is always a great bar-b-que and priced reasonably. We used to go all the way out to Rochester for the Dinasaur Bar-b-que, now we only have to travel to downtown Buffalo for this great tasting food. The waitress we had bent over backwards to accommidate us. Everyone should try this place just once, and you will be hooked! thank you all
Food was good, coleslaw a little too crunchy for my tastes
Our group was seated at 2 different tables (this was fine and we knew ahead). We had different servers and unfortunately the one table received very slow service. One table was done eating and it was another 15 minutes before the food was brought out for other table. The waitress never apologized nor did a manager come around to see how the meal was. It was not busy at all so there was no excuse for how slow the service was.
We had a reservation so there was no waiting for a table. Waiter was fantastic and on top of making sure we were taken care of. Food came quickly and was very good.
Food was great! Barbeque pulled pork very tender and tasty! Great service! First time my friend who joined me was there and she loved it! We will go back! Worked before going to Shea's performance...close by and convenient!
I love it. Brought my mum before the theater and it was excellent as always.
Great place to go for dinner just before going to the theater or just for date night. Food was good, service was fine and would highly recommend making a reservation, especially on the weekend.
Great food and service! Fried Green Tomatoes and the brisket were awesome! Limited parking until after 6pm.
Loud but with atmosphere. Always good...whatever we choose.
Lunch with son before theatre - had fried green tomatoes, pulled pork sandwiches and peanut butter pie. Were asked by server as well as another employee (kitchen staff possibly?) how we enjoyed our meal.
This is the third time I have eaten there. We will never go back.
When they first opened, the brisket sandwich was delicious. Each time it got worse. The brisket was so fatty, and yet so dry. The mac and cheese boring and dry. The salad was only leaf lettuce with 3 halved grape tomatoes. The cole slaw was not good either. Even the sweet tea we sent back because it was watery.
On a positive note the ribs were good.
Always a favourite of ours. The service was great and the food was awesome.
The last time I was at this location was when they first opened. I was disappointed in the menu then because they didn't carry some of the same items as the Rochester, NY, location. They do now and everything was fabulous!
Service was slow considering the number of patrons in the restaurant.
Food was great as per usual but service was lacking. It was a Friday night however there was some leeway, but it shouldn’t take 10 - 12 minutes for someone to come acknowledge you after you’ve been seated
