I love this joint. It is everything that everyone has said: biker chicks, bikers, cluttered, bustling, raucous, noisy, boisterous.

The smoking permeates downtown with a whiff of heaven, if you like meat. And meat they got. Tons of it. It's all good too.

The beer selection is superb as well; for a place that appeals to such a wide cut of the city there is precious little yellow beer. There are a great variety of beers of flavor and color from locals Middle Ages, Custom Brewcrafters, as well as macro micros such as Sams, SN, Bass, etc.

Frankly, I don't go there for the beer exclusively. It's a nice addition and balance when served with their exceptional barbeque fare.

When in either Rochester or Syracuse, go to the Dinosaur. You won't be disappointed. Go now, git on with ya!

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.
