Village Voice's Description

The first Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was founded by a couple of bikers in Syracuse back in the 1980s. The restaurant made its way to Harlem in 2004 and has been mobbed ever since. The giant pit-smoked chicken wings, served with Maytag blue cheese dressing, are the most popular appetizer on the menu. The slow-cooked pork ribs, pulled pork and barbecue beef brisket, available by themselves or in various combo plates, draw in a boisterous crowd, often including students from nearby Columbia. The design scheme tries to recreate the roadhouse original. Wood beams cross the large space, which is littered with motorcycle-related curious, not to mention a painting depicting all of the animals you can eat at the restaurant playing poker with dinosaurs. Needless to say, the restaurant stresses fun; more than 20 beers are on tap, big tables encourage large groups and the volume is always high, even if there aren't any motorcycles roaring outside.—Keith Wagstaff

    Along with Daisy May's, Dinosaur tops the category of Best BBQ in New York. Waits are epic, as are the ribs. Be aware that outside tables are first-come first-served. [Eater 38 Member]

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/27/10

    Hailing from Syracuse, this popular rib joint boasts the best BBQ north of the Mason Dixon. We recommend the chicken wings and the BBQ rib smackers for fall-off-the-bone deliciousness.

  • Corinne W. on 03/14/10

    AMAZING mac and cheese. best side dish hands down.

  • Metromix on 07/07/10

    Our Readers' Choice WINNER for Best Barbeque. This barbeque joint can bring the "Yabba Dabba Doo" out of you with Fred Flintstone size portions.
