Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is great. It's even more impressive when you take into consideration one, the amount of visitors they have in an evening and, two, this is one of the very few places that serve proper BBQ in the tri-state area. The food here is really good, whether you get the ribs, brisket, or chicken you'll be quite satisfied with the seasoning and sauces. Also, the sides aren't anything to be ignored. The most authentic, imo, are the sweet potatoes. Room for improvement, the collard greens. Finally, drinks are pretty good but, like most places, they played it safe with the spiciness of their infused drinks, specifically the jalapeno margarita. The service is great, the staff is super attentive and always just around the corner to fill your drinks or take another order of mac'n'cheese. Also, great to come here in groups as the staff doesn't have an issue splitting the bill.

Went for lunch with a friend and the service was excellent 5 star service all day. The manager introduced him self and was very welcoming. The food was amazing, had a dino burger and I was not disappointed.

I used Opentable 2 days ago to book resv. for 2 at 6:30pm tonight. I just got a call from them with some song and dance about they can't honor that reservation but we can come anyway … really!!! Homey don't play that! Peace out Dinosaur … this is why your extinct.

Great service and delicious offerings (Mac and cheese is amazing), but it won't be easy to find affordable parking in that area, especially if there is an event at Prudential Center.

We live in Newark, and we really like Dino's. The food is quite good, especially the ribs and pulled pork, and the Dino cheesecake rocks. The sides are good too; there's a macaroni and cheese dish which is surprisingly good, and the whipped sweet potatoes with walnuts is excellent. The decor is cool, with, among else, lots of old posters of obscure movies, and the staff is very friendly. We had Mel for our waiter on our last visit, and he was really awesome. And, you can actually have a conversation with your companions, since the music is kept low enough. Finally, nobody rushes you away when you're done; if you want, you can hang out and relax for a while. It is a bit more expensive than what we can often afford, but you also get good-sized portions, and we always really enjoy coming here.
