Dinosaur Bar-B-Que - Rochester Ratings and Reviews
This was my first and probably last time eating at this establishment. The place was loud and over crowded. Reservation request for a booth was not met. Once sat, the hostess came back and told us that she made a mistake and that it wasnt our table so made me and my girfriend leave the table and go stand in the entry way another 15 minutes to then seat us in the bar area under the stairs...Not exactly the service I expected from such a talked about place. The pulled pork was good but the brisket tasted like lighter fluid. As mentioned earlier, first and last time eating here.
Great food ! Love this place ! We didn't have to wait at all and our server Becky was very good . I couldn't decide between 3 sides I wanted so after I finally decided she brought me a sample of the one I didn't pick . She also knew we were going to an event so she made sure she was quick with out bill.
We were visiting from out of town and went there for our ananniversary. First time eating there. Wow! Who would've thought there was fantastic BBQ this far North! Some of the best BBQ we've ever had. So many great choices to choose from. Ended up getting a Trio plate with brisket, Baby back ribs and a hotlink, with sides of greens and mashed potatoes. Sublime! The service was friendly and superb. They went out of their way to get us a special table and accomodate us early since we showed up before our reservation. BTW, reservations are highly recommended for this outstanding eatery!
Not what it is cracked up to be. Just ok. The food all tasted very smokey. It is a BBQ place but not everything should taste like smoke. If you're a foodie, go elsewhere. If you're looking for a busy place with lots of hipsters, then this is the place to be.
Have come to dinosaur bar -be- que every time we come to Rochester. Always good food this time tried fried green tomatoes will definitely get them again they were delish. Our group also had chopped brisket sandwich, a burger and a brisket with Swiss no complaints.
The sandwich was outstanding, the specialty cocktails were good, and the sides were good. The atmosphere was fun! Not very quiet, so not a great pick for a romantic dinner, but great for a casual night out. The only off-putting thing about the entire night was that the hostess calls each reservation over the mic. I would definitely return for a more casual occasion; not to mention, the band was good and seating was optimal.
