Dino BBQ is always a classic. Very easy go to if you are looking for some solid BBQ and great beers on tap. Waitress was very pleasant, and the atmosphere was fun.
I thought that the brisket was a bit lacking from where it was last time I had it. Did not have the signature smoke ring I was looking for.
Reservations helped wait time
The food was great. The waiter (Carlos) was fantastic. I will be going again.
Best ribs in the US
Waitress took almost 10 minutes to get us water and take our order after we got seated. Everything else was great.
Always a good time! Super accommodating for our large group. Our sever Carlos was top notch!
This place truly is a neighbourhood gem. Love the ambience. The brisket and the ribs used to be even more tender and come right off the bones. I wouldn't mind paying $5 for the combo platter if that brings the falling off the bone quality of the meat back!
The food was amazing and our server was the best! She was very accommodating even when we had to push our reservation back!
The staff doesn't really care about the food although the BBQ is great and everyone should go. The mac n' cheese leaves a bit to be desired. I loved the brisket!
My children and i had a great brunch it had something for everyone thanks again
Solid BBQ top to bottom. Only complaint this time was that the waiter was VERY inattentive. I had to go up to the front desk area a few times to get some service.
great spot for a date and good food...little bit noisy at times
Great brisket! Chicken isn’t worth it
Always delicious food. Drinks were a little slow. Server was friendly.
Waited a bit for seating even with reservation but everything else was FANTASTIC. Food and service were fast and friendly
Barbecue wings very good.
Drinks very good
Service excellent - attentive, friendly and helpful
Best chicken wings ever !!
Ribs and brisket very good.
First time visiting on Valentine’s Day. Food and service was great. Really busy, but the atmosphere was fantastic. Would visit again if I was back in New York.
BBQ In the city , not what I expected. Best BBQ. I’ve had in a longtime.
It was nice.
The service was GREAT! Food was Amazing!
Food was delicious as always, fast and friendly service, good atmosphere. We will keep coming back for southern style barbecue. Rye ribs and collard greens are be best around.
I've always wanted to try Dinosaur BBQ as I've heard the hype. The place is loaded with charm and welcoming. However, the seats in our booth were worn and broken, and I was surprised when we were given extremely scratchy plastic plates. This is a turn-off to anyone who loves dining out. The wedge salad is naked lettuce and tomato, no bacon or cheese, but came with a delicious dressing. We had the family special which, for $70, is a good deal and feeds 4-6. I recommend the chicken, moist and tasty, and the ribs were good. Both the pulled pork and brisket were over-smoked. Cornbread was very good. The mac & cheese forgettable, but the house made fries excellent. Overall, good not great. They need to replace their scratchy plastic dishware and re-stuff the seats in the booths.
Excellent food ! We went to Dinosaur BBQ for a retirement dinner for a colleague. The service was excellent! Love the fried green tomatoes ! We had the combo plates. Tasty ! The place has a good selections of wines. We finished the dinner off with Key Lime Pie. A purely enjoyable dining experience.
Went for my sons Birthday with family members(14), we had reservation for 830 pm, we all arrived on time , but still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Waitress was pleasant and friendly , but I think she may have had to many tables , because after she took drink order , food order there was long wait for both to come.
Had a reservation but still had to wait twenty minutes. The staff figuring out what to do with us simply seemed annoyed we were there at all. When seated the table next too us played a basketball game loudly on their phone during our whole date. The last time I was here the table next to us was on her phone loudly as well, really loudly, but it's not the sort of place that would pay any attention to a complaint or move you. Chaotic waiter service. They seemed overwhelmed. The food is great here but we will never be back.
The wings were good but the full rack of ribs we ordered were burnt, hard, and very cold.
The ribs were just okay. Nothing special. Definitely not as good as the dry rub ribs I get when I’m in Nashville. (Peg Leg Porker is the place if you ever get to Music City.) I did like the sides, especially the barbecued fried rice. The Cajun deviled eggs were also pretty good. Collared greens were a bit too spicy. Baked beans were pretty ordinary as was the Mac n cheese. I was really hoping the ribs would have been better. I’m just used to moist, tender, fall off the bone goodness. Dinosaur did not deliver.
Great food, great atmosphere, and friendly servers. Love this place!
We had a fantastic time.It was a family gathering .We had not seen each other for a long time .We didn't want to leave.Will definitely come back one day.
Love this place ! Every time I go it’s a better experience than the last .
Great food, plenty of it. Casual and fun, space to move around. Big bar, big tables, big portions. Great tasting food, really nice servers.
I live in the neighborhood and this is one of of my mom's favorite spot. I do always make reservations since this place always seems to be packed. The food is always good, the ambiance and also the service. Waiters are attentive.
I took my father and some family here when he was visiting from Florida over the holidays and the food and service was far beyond anything I was expecting! The brisket and wings are the best I’ve ever had and the smoky flavor of the meat is amazing! I used to work as a waiter in nyc for 6 years so I have had a good amount of food experience in this city and this is definitely my #1 go to spot being that I live close by. Recently I took my wife here for lunch and we ate so much we didn’t eat anything else for the rest of the day, the value is great for the quantity & quality. I look forward to my next visit!!
I have had BBQ in all the top regions is the US. Dino holds its own. Love the Ribs and Brisket as well as the sides and cornbread. We shared the Sweet Potato Pecan Pie for dessert.
Get there early before they run out brisket. Overall the food was great.
Arrived at 6:25 (all of us) for a 6:30 reservation. Was told we’d have to wait 30 minutes. Not sure what the point of the reservation was. Walk-ins were told the same thing. Waited just over 35 minutes. Food was OK. Strong flavor of liquid smoke in most things. Not as good as it once was.
They accepted and confirmed my family's booking during a time they were advertised as open. We got there and it was closed. It cost us 12 dollars each way to get there, then a walk through the snow and wind. Disgraceful!
We ate here after checking trip advisor for American BBQ style food in NYC. This place is brilliant. The food is delicious. Service is faultless, ambience was fab. Highly recommend this place.
Awesome ribs, it was the perfect way to get warmer and be ready to face the cold !
