    Everything on the menu is a winner, but if I had to recommend one single dish, it'd be the fried green tomatoes either as an appetizer, a meal, or to share with friends! Best BBQ in the Northeast!

    Smokey & flavorful with Dogfish Head on tap. Sit outside by the water during the warmer months & be thankful for the wet naps that come at the end of your meal.

    Excellent BBQ...Be sure to try ALL their sides because each one is awesome! Great draft beer selection also. Also, service is always fast & courteous! Overall, an excellent place for BBQ!

    Their Mac & cheese is definitely not holding a candle to silvias in Harlem..ribs could b better..smokey joes in lake George tops these ribs..and the sides are bigger up there

    Great place right on the water an true to the Dino BBQ chain. Other local BBQ exists that rivals the quality. Dino has the beer list and energy though.

    The BBQ Prime Rib is only available through catering and worth the upgrade in fee. If you are in the restaurant have the Cajun Catfish with BBQ Rice.

    Great beer, great service and great food. And amazing views of the river is the cherry on top. Can't go wrong here. Try their ribs or brisket.

    Absolutely amazing food. I loved everything I ate. I highly recommend going here for BBQ! Even the Mac & Cheese and Beans were amazing! YUMMMM

    The family platter is the way to go. Too much food for four people (hello leftovers!). Feeds six perfectly.

    Try the wings. I love wings fried but they smoke their wings and then grill them. Seriously the best wings I have ever had. Awesome

    The hot link sandwich is really good. Also free refills on the sweet tea is nice. Really fast service and the place was packed.

    I've driven two hours to get here, and have done it multiple times.The smoked chicken wings are must try, any flavor

    View of the Hudson right outside the dining table windows. Make sure you try their Mac & Cheese, it's the best.

    That's real smoke kids. The dinner combos are all good, get something with collards. Above average draft list.

    If you came with friends and arent in the mood for BBQ, the Bronzed Catfish is some of the best soul food in the 518.

    ASK for a seat outside. They won't put you there otherwise, hostesses are DUMB. Such great seats out there by the river.

    Humberto Martinez · July 11, 2011

    Eat on the deck for a great view of the river. The pulled pork is great, but the brisket is to die for.

    JD Willetts · July 31, 2012

    Ask for Zachary as a server. Tip notch skills and ability to speak in depth about every dish and all the beers.

    Michael Sweeney · June 5, 2013
  • Román J.

    The Wango Tango Chicken Wings are the best. Try then paired with Brown's Cherry Raspberry. You'll love it. Cheers!

    Román Jáquez · May 11, 2013

    Get the salmon...seriously! You won't be disappointed. Or, the churrasco chicken steak. Yum.

    Ask for Rafeal!!! Greatest server evarrrrr xD Place is cozy, food is awesome. Love it!

    Ribs are so delicious and flavorful just like the brisket sandwich. Recommend both :)

    Liz.v · July 14, 2014
  • Matt B.

    The smoked turkey is awesome and easy to miss. Add the sweet potatoes as a side.

    Matt Buonanno · August 29, 2014

    Two bars to choose from if you're waiting for a table: one inside and one outside.

    Ribs = meaty and delicious *Warning: your stomach will sound (and feel) like a warzone the next day

    Tres Hombres with Mac n Cheese and BBQ rice with a pint or 2 of Ape Hanger Ale...can't go wrong you'll be in a Dino coma in no time

    Ribs are good enough, but steak and mashed potatoes (I love most) are just so-so..

    Qian Meng · September 1, 2013

    Their Dino Burger is the best burger I've ever had! Def get it with the bacon!

    Nicole L. · March 20, 2011

    Definitely get to go... food is siiiick, servers take forever, even when they have 2 tables.

    Outside service sucked. They weren't even busy. The Syracuse location is still, by far, the best.

    Jill Rachel Evans · September 13, 2013
  • Ish C.

    The sausage app is great, the ribs are the best in the area, the sides are just OK.

    The smoked wings are great but the tapline is what keeps me coming back.

    Philip Famiano · May 23, 2012
  • Monty J.

    I did not even get a metal bucket for my ribs. Brisket plate didn't get a knife. What happened to that biker bar feel it had earlier.

    Monty Jordan III · December 8, 2014
  • Jessica C.

    Both the mac and cheese and mashed potatoes for sides are amazing!<3

    Jessica C · July 8, 2011
  • Jason H.

    Mac n cheese has way too much pepper, but everything else is delicious!

    Jason Howeth · April 5, 2013
  • Sandeep C.

    Try the bbq fried rice, a spicy and very unique/good option!

    Sandeep C. · June 5, 2014

    Everything is amazing here. My favorite BBQ joint by far.

    Mike Berrios · July 2, 2015
  • Renee G.

    BEST Mac and Cheese in the world.. hands down! Great beer selection too!

    Renee G · January 17, 2012

    Very solid tap selection. Two dozen taps: underrated.

    Bill · August 21, 2011
  • Natalie K.

    Excellent food, perfect rib racks, huge portions

    Natalie Keperti · September 3, 2015

    Perfect for work week lunch on a "work from home of you live far away" snow day - no wait, no state workers abounding.

    Armando Di Cianno · January 18, 2011
  • Stephen O.

    They keep the AC at about 65 degrees in order to combat the inevitable "meat sweets".

    Stephen Olker · July 8, 2013
  • Reid B.

    A good way to introduce yourself to local brews.

    Reid Barwick · July 15, 2014
  • Donald G.

    Great ribs, great devised eggs, great scenery!

    Donald Gallagher · June 26, 2012
  • katie b.

    Try the Dinosaur Ape Hanger ale, brewed specifically to go with barbecue.

    katie barnum · December 7, 2010
  • Brian W.

    Smokey bones is much better...and cheaper! This place is over rated

    Brian Wolfgang · August 16, 2011
  • Frank C.

    Free refills on the homemade lemonade and sweet tea!

    Frank Cerbone · December 17, 2010
  • Rory P.

    Forget everything else on the menu and load up on the ribs

    Rory Parness · March 17, 2013
  • Don D.

    Ribs are great, so good it keeps me from trying other things there..

    Don Dickinson · February 23
  • Philip F.

    The food ain't that great but the tapline is awesome.
