Went here for dinner the other night based on reviews I read on this site. The place was pretty easy to find and we found a parking spot right out front. They have a take-out area and a main eat-in area. They had about 25 different beers on draft, which included 5-7 of the usual suspects like coors/bud/miller. But they also had 15 or solid craft beers and a few seasonals. When I was there they even had Southern Tier PumKing on tap.. for 4.50$ for a pint - which is pretty reasonable. They also offer flights of beer, where you can try 4 different 4oz glasses of beer for 5.00$. The food was above average and the service was fast - perhaps a little too fast. If you decide to visit, I'd recommend ordering your food after you have a few drinks. Our meals arrived at almost the same time as my first beer.

Biker bar vibe. The scent of barbeque permeates the places. A reasonably weak cross section of craft beers...heavy on locsl brewery Middle Ages. Food was excellent...a bit pricey. Great art work on the walls.

Ok, so not a typical bar/restaurant. Biker BBQ joint. Waitresses treat u like sh*t, but that's what they r going for here. Food is outstanding. Brew selection is limited. Go here for the food and u will leave happy

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.
