I think the BBQ is ok, there are better places in the Syracuse area. The beer selection is also ok and features a lot of local, upstate NY breweries. The only problem with Dinosaur is the wait to get in. I have waited for over 2 hours once. Best way around this is to go there in the summer and get your food to-go and sit outside on their picnic benches in the alley. Virtually no wait and the food is the same. The wait staff is always trying to get people in and out as fast as possible.

Dinosaur's was the first serious barbeque restaurant I had visited. I have returned on two occasions and they have yet to let me down.

Great beer selection to go through as you wait for your table. Fell in love with a california IPA whihc came home via growler.

The food is outstanding. Damn good ribs. Smoked chicken wings with a great slightly firey rub must be enjoyed. Pulled pork was divine. Sides were great. Do the fried green tomatoes

It's well worth the 30 to 75 minute wait to eat here.

One of the reasons I make trips to Syracuse, Dinosaur never seems to disappoint me when I stop in.

I have never been when the place hasn't been hopping, and the crowd ranges from little old church ladies to hard looking bikers. Way too much fun!

Dinosaur has a decent beer selection. They have a couple of house brands in conjunction with Middle Ages Brewing Co.

They boast 22 taps and over 50 bottles available and some of their selections include Founders, Southern Tier and Lagunitas.

The prices for pints are reasonable, $4.50-$5.50 for 16 oz. The first time I went in I forgot I was in the US and the bartender gently reminded me I would get 4 oz less...but that I would save about $3.

Of course, one does not go to Dinosaur for the beer, it just happens to be a nice ride along. The food is the reason one goes, and it usually never disappoints. The ribs are delicious, the chicken is moist, and the brisket and pulled pork are amazing.

The sides...ah, the sides. Mac and Cheese that is fantastic, and BBQ beans with huge pieces of pulled pork!

There are always great specials available too.

The ambiance is well...sort of biker joint. It is in a rather blah part of town, and not exactly a tourist area. But, that doesn't matter once you have had the food.

Trust me...if you are in Syracuse, you should try Dinosaur.
