Ordered the jerk chicken sandwich with macaroni and cheese side and Cajun corn. Girlfriend ordered the original chicken sandwich with macaroni and cheese and fruit salad. Split a beef brisket slider on the side. Incredible! Quality and quantity are on par with each other. Excellent service and great atmosphere. When visiting Rochester again I will stop by for sure.

Dinosaur BBQ is my favorite restaurant in Rochester and my favorite BBQ place anywhere, even after having lived in Georgia for several years. I'm not sure where they get the pterodactyl sized wings they sell but they would embarrass your typical thanksgiving turkey. They are the largest, juiciest and most flavorful wings you'll come across, whichever sauce you decide to have on them. However, the wings aren't the best thing on their menu.. the ribs.. oh the ribs! If you really want to enjoy the ribs, get them to go because they are falling apart tender and you will get so engrossed in them you won't notice you have sauce everywhere. If you insist on eating them in the restaurant either take that Maid in the Mist poncho you kept as a souvenir or wear an old shirt. Seriously, the food is stupidly good.. can't say enough about it.

This is my favorite place in the world! I went to the Dinosaur BBQ in Brooklyn, NY and this one is just a little bit better. Fun environment, amazing food and not a bad price either. Come try it out. Get anything on the menu and it will be delicious.

Took 25 hungry clients from Finland to the Dinosaur last week and as expected was not disappointed - loud and noisy but a welcoming atmosphere. We took the private dining area but never felt out of it, perhaps that was down to Gina and Hope who looked after us so well. Great experience enjoyed by all! In fact, i'm returning next week with UK client to do it all again.

Not really sure what all the fuss is about. It was ok, but nothing to write home about. Small portions and their brisket was EXTREMELY fatty.. My wife couldn't eat it. I usually like the fat as there is much flavor, but not in this. We may have higher standards as I am from Texas and have had some pretty amazing brisket. Had the pulled pork that wasn't too great either. The best thing was the Cajun corn. I kinda feel like this place is one of those yelp fad places. You know, super hyped and glorified for lack of good food in the area...

I had a fantastic experience with Dinosaur BBQ! They catered my wedding and it was the best wedding food I have ever had. They brought the smoker with them and I am so thankful they did. The food was as good as it smelled. My friends and family were just as pleaded as I was. The staff was just as amazing as the food, very friendly and professional and didn't mind showing off the smoker to those that asked. Thank you so much Dinosaur BBQ for helping me have the most perfect wedding day.

My fiancee and I split the full rack 4-side meal and it was amazing. Mac n cheese and coleslaw are outstanding. Great location and live music add to the already wonderful food experience.

Incredible food. Just be sure to try and get a reservation. Wait times, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, can be absurd. Absolutely worth the wait, though.
