Our server Brandon was great, very attentive. We ordered the Tres Ninos, unfortunately, they were out of Brisket. The ribs were great! the pulled pork was smoky. Try the Bourbon sidecar. I loved the look and feel of the place. Great service.
fully enjoyed my dining experience. The food was good and we had no issues.
Had been to the restaurant in Harlem 9 years ago and much preferred it. They made us a special burger but did not include all the ingredients. Drove 1 hour to come to Stamford but would not do it again. the restaurant felt like a chain rather than the special experience we had the last time.
Service was pretty slow. Sat at 6:30 and our waiter didn’t come to our table for 15-20 minutes. Took 40 minutes to order food. We had an event to go to and asked for our food to be rushed (for 6 people), and we got it pretty quickly.
The BBQ is consistent. It’s not amazing, but always good. The sides are a cut above and there is a wide selection. The menu is much larger than any other BBQ restaurant I’ve been in. Try the shrimp boil, poutine, wings, beans, greens. Nothing will disappoint. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is clean and well managed. If you want real “Q” try Hoodoo, but Dinosaur is a great family alternative.
We made a reservation for 7:45 and we were able to get a table before then. We waited awhile for someone to come take our drink order than we waited longer for the drinks. She came back with the drinks and left. We thank waited more for her to come back to take our order. We finally out our food and it was delicious! I am not impressed with how long it took us to get waited on.
The food was very good. Not everything, pork belly in particular, was available. Understandable.
Service was disorganized. Perhaps understaffed on a Tuesday evening?
Out of some common bottled bar items.
I'd go back. Just some minor tweaks would help.
Always a great meal at a reasonable price. Wish it were less noisy. Hard to have a conversation.
Our group of 8 arrived in Stamford by boat and took a chance on this restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was delicious, all 8 of us were happy! The service was great and attentive.
One our our friends even said that it was the best dinner of our week long vacation!!
Great bbq. Fun place take work crowd out for summer lunch
Our waitress was attentive and friendly but The food was just ok.
Had a great dinner here with friends. Outstanding bbq and great service, both at the bar and our table.
Food was very low quality and I would not go back. No healthy options.
We were traveling through the New England territory and a friend who lives in Connecticut referred the Dinosaur BBQ Restaurant. Good clean and tasty food. Please add more locations
I love for Dinosaur BBQ. Ron, our bartender, has a great personality and service was quick.
Overall lots of smoky flavors, a little over priced but good food and service.
The food at this restaurant is so good. I personally LOVED the deviled eggs as well as the Mac and Cheese. I love Mac and cheese and I have got to say the one at Dinosaur BBQ is one of my top favorites.
Good food, service was very distracted
Service was horrible. While the restaurant was busy all tables around us that were 4 people or more that came in after us received their food before us. Server basically ignored us or was somewhere else in the restaurant.
My wife and I visited Dinosaur Bar-B-Que couple times and food and service was very good. However our last visit our drinks too almost 30 mins to arrive. What? Yes 30 mins. We couldn’t believe it and even had to remind the waiter about our drinks when he states “oh yeah they’re coming”. No apologies. The food arrived shortly after but was very good. I’d rate the food 5 stars but would’ve like the BBQ baked beans portion to be bigger. The amount on the platter is very small and dosen’t have that BBQ sweet tangy taste that I’d expect.
But wait there’s more; the waiter disappeared throughout the time we’d were and when he finally showed up, he gave us the bill from another table that wasn’t even near our table. He gave us the bill and walked away without asking us how was the meal or the experience. Not good ! I had to get the attention of another waiter who laughed it off. Too bad this last night experience happened and although we plan to return, we hope our experience will be much better.
Please have wait staff retrained about how provide services to customers.
The food was great ! The serving walked by every 10 minutes to make sure we was okay and I like that. Best place to have a god anniversary dinner
Food was delicious- lots of flavor. Waitress was okay, not very friendly and all but disappeared in the end.
We asked for a booth. Nasty hostess said none were available. I was looking at 3 empty ones. We told her we would wait. Five minutes later she gave us one of the booths that were empty the whole time. She was very nasty as well. Server was great and the food is always great.
We had a nice lunch at Dinosaur. It's a cute place and I imagine it is more crowded and happening in the evening. I liked the BBQ smoked chicken and the ribs were pretty good. Collards good, slaw- no taste, cornbread good.
Delicious bbq chicken and ribs, and great sides. Always a fun time a DBQ!
very little food for the price!!! 13 dollars for a burger and fries ,,which had very little fries and burger was a little small.. ordered JUMBO wings that were NOT jumbo!!!
great night with family for Mother's Day
We will be back soon
Great food! Great staff! This is my second time going and it won't be the last.
They took us on time for our reservation and the food was great.
Good quality food-prices are really reasonable. Adult meals $15-20 and kid meals $7
Very slow service. Our waiter was pleasant but couldn’t remember anything!
Horrible waitress. Bussers should have been servers they were more attentive and polite
Once again out of the meat we wanted
I love Dinosaur BBQ in Stamford, the food is very good and I like the atmosphere. Our waiter wasn’t the most attentive, but the hosts were very friendly
Excellent BBQ and menu options.
It used to be significantly better two years ago. Portions went down along with some of the quality, prices stayed the same or went up. Used to be a 5 star casual bbq spot.
The sweetheart rib deal is delicious and very reasonable
Our waiter was fabulous. But it took an unreasonable amount of time for food to come out. At one point our watier had to go into the back and just make a side salad for my daughter himself. On the positive side, once our food did come out it was very good. They even took our nachos and my son's dinner off the bill as a courtesy.
We waited an hour for our meals.
We were told the kitchen could not handle the rush they had.
Strange. It is a large restaurant.
Maybe they should not have so many tables.
