I don't think there is a better place to sit down and have exceptional BBQ with a good beer. I've been to Dino several times now and every time I go there's always a new beer on tap. The waits are pretty bad on weekends at night, but for me it's a great opportunity to buy a pitcher of the lastest microbrew and stand outside next to the heaters. Last time I went I had a nice pint of the Goose 312 Urban wheat to start, and a pumpkin ale (forgot who makes it) with my beef brisket for dinner. The only problem I have with this place is that the service can be rather slow, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Go here if you love to eat a good barbecued Pig. It's the closest to quality southern-BBQ in all of Rochester.

Probably my all time favorite place to go. Great food!!! Service is excellent. I once ordered from there and had pick up service. It was poring rain and they insisted on coming to deliver it to my car rather than me coming in to get it when I offered.

A classic downtown.

The food is the main draw, for good reason. Every type of BBQ is represented, and you can slather their tasty house-made sauce all over it. The corn-bread is to die for.

They have a good taplist, mostly local stuff. Good stuff from Southern Tier, Ithaca, Rohrbach's, CB's, etc. Nothing crazy, but dependable, and turnover is relatively high.

Love the feel of the place inside- high ceilings, cool artwork and decorations. The food is expensive, as big BBQ places tend to be, but no more expensive than Sticky Lips. The food at Sticky Lips is slightly better though.

Fun place! Busy as hell - all the time! If you like BBQ, and you like craft beers, go give it a try, good stuff! The beer selection is pretty extensive, they carry many crafts and locals including Ithaca and many others. This is a must stop for us when we are in the Rochester NY area.
