. Good food good service great value one of my favorite places to go
Excellent service from our waiter Chad and the food was delicious as always.
We were visiting the University in the Rochester area. This restaurant was highly recommended to us and it lived up to its reputation! If you like
Smoked barbecue, this is the place to go! Meaty, tasty wings followed by ribs that were extremely tender. Corn side was yummy and fries were good too. Atmosphere was fun and the view was great. Would highly recommend if in the area!
Great service! Great food! I took my girlfriend here for our 1-year anniversary and so loves Dinosaur-BBQ. I personally have never been here before but I’m glad I have. Our waitress was so nice and genuine and I loved every bit of it. My girlfriend and I had an amazing time and the food was simply amazing. Would come here again in the future.
Well I got the drunken boiled cold shrimp. It came fully shelled with legs. I wasn't expecting that I was pretty grossed out. And then upon removing the shell from this Brown stuff exploded all over my hand. It was disgusting and foul. Obviously I would not eat another shrimp and I would not order this Shrimp ever Again.
Great food and service!!
Haven’t been to the Dino in quite some time, but we couldn’t decide on where to go and it seemed like a good idea. It was a Thurs evening about 6:30 and surprisingly there was no wait.
The food is as good as ever...we shared ribs and chicken. Good variety of terrific sides. Very good waiter too...overall we were very happy with our choice!
fantastic food, decent prices, cheap flights with great beer, and terrific atmosphere - usually busy so doesnt hurt to make reservations
Food and friends was good. Very crowd and busy as usual. Has a great time.
Side entrance should be monitor during busy peck. Customers comes in seating themselves when table may be reserved or ahead of waiting groups.
Food excellent, service outstanding, great gluten free menu , gluten free served on different color plate by manager and staff very knowledgeable of gluten free menu.
Where else should you go on a Friday night in April during a lake-effect blizzard? We were in Rochester for my son's accepted students meeting at RIT. I'm so excited for his future and for additional opportunities to dine at the Dinosaur. So loved the ribs, bbq beans and mac salad. Glad I skipped desert because the 3 ribs was more that sufficient. Love this place!
I went with friends from out of town who are considering making Rochester their home. They loved it! It’s a great place to get bbq and chill. It can be loud so not a great place for dates but as a causal get together, it was perfect although confusing and a tad too dark... Highly recommend!
We had reservations but they still made us wait for 30 minutes
Ribs, brisket, wings...AMAZING! Delicious food, trendy decor, busy spot. Book ahead on busy nights. Closest restaurant to Blue Cross Arena.
It was great!
Fries were too salty and overseasoned for our 12 year old grandson and black beans and rice too spicy for our granddaughter. Maybe the menu should state if something is spicy or seasoned. The corn is listed as seasoned, but I don't believe the fries or black beans were mentioned. Maybe not a place to take children??? The adults enjoyed their food.
Awesome food and great value! We were stunned at how quickly the food arrived at our table. Order was 100% accurate
I brought my parents from out of town to get a taste of a local gem. Best BBQ in Rochester!
It was an amazing experience! We’ve been before, but our waitress made it an even better time. A Rochester must!
Amazing! Dinosaurs never disappoints! The best BBQ food around!
Food and service was excellent. The food came out quick too.
The food and service were excellent as usual, except the food took an unusually long time to come out, considering it was mid-afternoon and they weren't busy. Also, the cornbread was not warm, which was disappointing. Everything else was lovely. Our server kept the drink glasses filled and the fried-green tomatoes were piping hot and delicious.
Amazing! Will deff be back :)
Great place for family dinning! And the server was pleasant and acccomodating.
Great food, but they actually seat people beneath a stairwell which is kinda gross. Besides that, 👍🏻.
Birthday celebration, lots of fun and great food
Bbq was excellent. Had the Brisket Deluxe plate with mac and mashed. Was soft and savory. The drinks were delicious and service was superb. Definitely recommend going if you are in town 🤘🏽
Fast service, good food. Not rushed
Food was delicious -service was great
The usual excellent experience with food and service. This time, we had an excellent waitress, Sue by name, who really impressed my guest and I. Accurate, efficient, and great personality were demonstrated.
Nice experience !
Great food, wonderful attention to those with severe gluten allergy-love this place,
Delicious!!! So good, can smell the aroma before you get in the restaurant. Mmmm....
Went for monthly lunch with co-workers
Food arrived hot and timely
They could think of offering a lunch menu
Prices were a but high
This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. My colleagues and I were in town from Toronto on business so we were looking for something that was not a chain. This was the perfect spot. The food and beverage was fantastic, our server, Chad, was friendly, professional and efficient and the atmosphere was casual but fun. It was very busy when we got there but we were seated quickly (we did have a reservation) and our order was taken very shortly after.
I would highly recommend this restaurant if you like meat and BBQ or if you are looking for something casual and fun. If you are in Rochester, you gotta eat here :)
Food was awesome. Stop here every time I’m in town
Best pork ribs money can buy.
Good food, great service, prompt seating with reservation otherwise wait was 2.5 hours. Only compliant we had was table for four was way too cramp with little room for plates
It was a busy Saturday night. We made reservations for 5 and were seated by 5:15. Not too bad for a busy evening with a concert happening at the Blue Cross. Bacon was amazing! Loved the BLT
We were here for the Special Olympics New York State Winter Games and decided to have barbecue. Been to the original one in Syracuse and loved it and wanted to see how this one was. Being able to make reservation was terrific. Our server was excellent. Food was just as great. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
Friendly greeting, short wait, both teen-friendly and senior atmosphere, attentive server, excellent portions as requested-what more could you ask for a special night with grandsons.
