Our party of 16 had a reservation for 5 PM on Saturday and arrived early, however our table was not ready at the expected time and we didn't get seated until around 5:20 then we waited 20-30 minutes until a waitress took our orders and an additional 40 minutes after that before our food finally arrived. I was initially given the wrong plate which had a side dish other than what I ordered. It was quickly corrected but the delivery of the food seemed rather chaotic. The brisket and fries were good but the beans were less than appetizing with unknown stringy bits making it hard to get just the beans, which were a bit too spicy. In addition, the restaurant was extremely noisy, making conversation difficult and I could hardly hear myself think

First time customer here, wait for two was about hour and 45 minutes, and this from what I hear is an everyday thing being it's the closest one from anywhere in the surrounding 5 Burroughs without crossing the $13 Washington bridge. I ordered the 3/4 rack of ribs with two sides which were Mac & cheese and cole slaw. Entree came in pretty quick and nice and not to hot. Ribs seasoned very lightly but smoked to perfection. Meat pulls away from bone effortlessly and pork meat has a nice pink smoke ring which in the BBQ world is considered a huge plus. Don't confuse the pink for raw, it isn't. Now to the Mac&cheese was pretty standard, nothing over the top like what I heard, to me, pretty bland IMO. If you really want Mac&cheese then the place is Cheesecake Factory. Best thing on my plate was the cole slaw to be quite honest. That thing was delicious, simple seasoning (vinegar, mayo) with rich crunchy texture. Our server for the night was rebekah. She was outstanding and very helpful and very attending. Thank you rebekah for making our dining at dinosaur BBQ that much better. Will I give it another try on a less busier night? Probably not, when isn't it a busy night here! Which makes me think that the good is pretty rushed. Ribs def need some tuning

This place was the worst. I will give this place no star but I'm afraid that Google want you to give a least one. The food was cold the service was not good the drinks was bland. They charge a lot for nothing. You get a big plate with bones. Trust me you do not want to go there. And P.S. please don't believe the hype what other people tell you. And happy food hunting.

The service was great and the food was wonderful. The only negative thing is that everybody knows how awesome this place is so it gets pretty crowded in the evenings. Other than the crowd, which is a testament to how good Dino BBQ is, this establishment deserves 5 stars.

If you like BBQ and you are looking for a real down to earth BBQ joint to get your fingers dirty, this is a must try. BBQ! Love it, the only reason why this place did not get 5 stars was because of the brisket (I didn't eat it) I tried the three ninos, they give you pulled pork, a rib and brisket its sort of a sample plate along with two sides. The food was awesome you can taste the different ingredients in the BBQ sauce there was definitely orange in there. My bf has the ribs they fell right off the bone, they are dry rubbed and there is BBQ at your table if you want smother them in more deliciousness. The french fries were banging, they were homemade with the skin and just enough seasoning to add some crunch and texture. A must try I tell you.

Very randomly located in an awkward little area of Harlem. Got there at closing and was not able to be seated.
