    Food was delicious and great atmosphere. Meets were all good and we tried plenty. Loved the greens. Something for everyone in your group to eat. Beers selection was great, lots of crafts to chose from.

    Had a wonderful experience at Dinosaur Barbecue today for my birthday. My sister took me here for both of our first time and the food was delicious. Otto our waiter was excellent! He was attentive and very sweet. Awesome restaurant and awesome service!

    The food is great if you are a fan of BBQ. The atmosphere is cool too, primarily wood, with old pictures and metal sculptures. The thing they should work on is customer service. Me and my boyfriend had to wait for a table for 45min and they were supposed to call us after the table was available. However, after all the waiting, we received no call from the restaurant, and once we checked inside to see how long shouls we wait, I noticed that there were many free tables and we were seated immediately.

    The day I went, the wait was only 10 minutes for a table of 4 adults and 3 children. My servers name is Mel. I highly suggest you seek him out. He is very outgoing and always thinks 5 steps ahead on what the customers want. He really tries to make the customers happy. Food is always awesome and portion size is great for what you pay. Love Dinosaur BBQ

    Delicious BBQ and smoked food. College bar atmosphere and I mean that as a compliment. Service is friendly and helpful in navigating the menu. Stands out compared to other BBQ places in NYC in quality of food and a more authentic (less touristy) experience. But if visitors can find this place they would certainly enjoy it. Good value too

    Hello. This place is amazing, we had a great looking guy baked Jeremy who was our waiter, who was on point in everything he did. Couldn't do enough. Food was amazing we had the Sweetheart deal. Fabulous with 4 sides, we got the Cole slaw and the sweet potatoes. We also had the nachos, with pork, they were alright, not enough beans or pork but what we had was tasty. For drinks we had the Dogfish Head 90 minute. Freaking awesome. Very much enjoyed ourselves.

    Hopping atmosphere, good drinks, plenty of beers on tap, and text notification if you have to wait for a table. The food was good southern cooking. Don't get the brisk unless you love a ton of smoke. If you get the swag sampler make sure you order for the right amount of people at your table because that is the exact amount you will get. Over all a great place! Only lost a star because the manager yelled at one of the employees right next to our table... not cool.

    Came here because it was recommended by a friend. Party of 9 and none of us enjoyed our food. French fries were very salty. Salty enough for me to have to scrape the salt off. Ribs were decent.Mac and cheese was okay but it was cold. I was expecting great food but i was let down. Atmosphere is great though, had a live band and singer had a great voice!

    The people and atmosphere were nice. We went on St Patrick's day, so kind of packed, but still wasn't a bad wait. Not too costly and quick service, once seated and order placed. The food is okay, but nothing to write home about. The mac and cheese, needs not to be seasoned liked that. Besides that the place is okay and I will go back.

    Friendly staff from walking in to walking out. Waiter was very attentive and was always checking on our group. Seating was tight along the wall to the left hand side..... The table leg made it difficult to sit on the left side of the table against the wall with three people sitting on one side. Service was quick and food was good. Had brisket and pulled pork with Cole slaw and whipped sweet potatoes. Everything was good and I enjoyed it. The rest of friends did enjoy their meals but we all agreed John brown in Long island City is better.
