Some of the best BBQ you can get. The rotisserie chicken is flavorful and juicy. Def one of my fav items. Love the shrimp cooked in beer.

The Brisket sandwich was out of this world. I've never had brisket so tender before. And the flavor was the best I've tasted in a long time. Beer cheese soup was very good, a tinge of spice that really added to it.

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.

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.

Yikes, really some 5 stars? Sent to by hotel as best BBQ even some recommendations from local "Texans" Not even close to good, at best mediocre, giving it 2 just because of their promo biz I guess. 3 companions rated even worse that I have. Maybe it was 'cause the "scene" was entertaining. I know reviews as useful but really, not worth the time. However best "let's get it on" kinda drinks. no subtlety.

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...

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.

A staple in Rochester, great BBQ and an awesome bar with some killer band line ups throughout the year
