The place was hot, the food was horrible and the prices were high considering the amount of food you get. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs ( horrible! had no taste what so ever and was watery). It came with a bun split with butter and burnt around the edges. Lesson learned!

Nice local spot to grab a bite to eat. The Gyro/Pasta/Fries are a family favorite along with the burgers. Everything made FRESH to order. This restaurant is so well liked in Newark that a local elementary school has planned a "Thank YOU Dino's" week for diners to go in and thank Dino's. Restaurant has consistently for years helped schools by... More

I've lived in Newark for 29 years and just discovered Dino's for the first time. I was really surprised to see how busy it is. The food was good. I had to ask for a container before I started eating because the portion was so huge. The food was tasty. The service was great. The staff are energetic and service... More

Generally, we go for one of the Pastas with a Caesar Salad. All pastas are cooked to perfection. The most popular one, Chicken Parmigiana has both spaghetti and rigatoni. Not to forget the Excellent Burgers: Cheeseburger, Greekburger, Mushroomburger. They also have the best homemade soups. We never have ordered anything on Tuesday without a bowl of Lentil Soup!

It's a great place to meet with friends. The food is always tasty and there's a variety of dishes which seems to have something for everyone. It's also good for take out, as you order and pay at the counter, rather than at the table.

I've grown up in Newark, (now 22) and this place is one of the few that has stuck around all that time. You see firemen and police men grabbing meals, and the family that runs the restaurant is great. Personally, I always go for the crab sandwich and if you're down with seafood I highly recommend it.
