The food and ambiance are great. No very expensive. I went at lunch out and even thought they were busy, the service was fast and efficient. The ribs were excellent and soft, but I specially enjoyed the mashed potatoes and gravy.

We tried BBQ brisket and pork with A.K. chili & BBQ bean. They were excellent. A little bit waiting for lunch at 1pm on a weekday. However, it was not a deal breaker. Overall, it offered nice food & services.

As always the food is excellent.... The last week of 2017 we ate there and it was not as good as it has been i nthe past.... but still great. I hope this isn't the start of a downward trend like many other restaurants.

The staff was friendly and wait was short. But the plates with the indentations for food make me feel like I am back in grade school. I know this is not the healthiest place but I just felt like the grease was in every item....More

When there before going to the Blue Cross Arena, they have an amazing choice of beer and you can build your own flight. The food was delicious and amazing. Their sauce is sweet and savory. Also, the service is fast and friendly.

Totally worth visiting! Quite a spot. Amazing atmosphere, great views, great people... The absolute BBQ experience! The food is good too... however it didn't blow me away! I'm hard to please with BBQ :) The chicken wings were very very good though :)

From the Fried Green Tomatoes to the pulled pork and ribs, Dinosaur BBQ is delicious! We also enjoy the sides (comfort food!) and sweet, fluffy cornbread. We only eat at Dinosaur BBQ for special occasions, as it is not a cheap meal. We love the...More

I tend to be underwhelmed by BBQ places. Always seems overpriced and BBQ out is rarely as good as at home. Good environment. Cool locations. Good for BBQ restaurant.
