    The mac 'n' cheese is good but not the best I've ever had. The Memphis pulled pork sandwich, on the other hand, is remarkably tasty.

    Good casual non-pretentious BBQ place. That is hard to find in NYC. Mac and cheese is great.

    Absolutely delicious barbecue! Very big space so great for large groups and the sweetheart deal is perfect for two people splitting food. Worth the visit!

    This place has gone downhill majorly. Don't order the lamb. Food poisoning central.

    The Brooklyn version of the Syracuse eatery. Long wait for food. Too long. But worth it in the end. Great cold spicy shrimp appetizer. Pulled pork sliders. Can't beat the ribs.

    Get the sample dish, has chicken, ribs, vegs, bread. Awesome. Drinks pricey and not that strong.

    Ribs. Always the ribs here. The brisket is average.

    The RIB's are the best thing on this planet. The collar greens are great, the mash potatoes are on point. Didn't like the fried green tomatoes to much.

    For appetizers, I definitely recommend that you try the fried green tomatoes and the chicken wings. Both are so delicious!

    Had the family shared feast. Sampled a lot. Chicken was great. Brisket and ribs on point. The fried tomatoes are awesome and grab a bucket of beers with the chow.

    Fried green tomatoes, wango tango wings and ribs are great. The sides and everything else is rather average

    Ribs are pretty good (not incredible), but the pork belly and lamb shoulder is awesome. The BBQ fried rice is a great side and I recommend eating family style. Pair your food with an empire amber ale.

    Amazing service! Outside seating with heatlamps and overhead protection from rain. You can always come and dine with your dogs! Don't miss the mac and cheese and brisket!

    Horrible food,Tasteless, crappy and unseasoned. An embarrassment to BBQ. The waitress was cute, making up for the lack luster in the food, Save your time..grill at home. Where the food is seasoned.

    If you're a Southerner, you might appreciate the off-menu Ultimate BLT: pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, and crispy bacon. Served on a roll instead of sourdough. Get a side of mayo!

    The best Chicken Barbecue that I ever shoved down my throat. Unbelievable how they are marinated and smoked I think: Wango Tango /my favorite. Excellent staff. Smells great. Generous.

    Y'know, it's not always the best BBQ, but the sauce's good, rub's tasty, no major/affordable competition aside from another DBBQ. AND, a damn tasty bowl of chili; something the area has none of.

    The sauce is delicious on anything, though I usually get the ribs. The Dinosaur Poutine is good, but a little extra cheese would take it to great. Fresh house fries are amazing!

    Not as much grit as other locations around the state. Almost feels more like a Applebees than a Dinosaur. New limited menu feels generic, lacks the genuine "honkey-tonk" vibe Dinosaur always had.

    Don't know what the magic is in the wedge salad, but it's always one of my sides. And start with the deviled eggs.

    Walked in at 7pm on Thursday and waited for an hour and a half for a table of 6. You can imagine how hungry we were. Food was okay. Wait-staff weren't that great. Took them 15 mins to get us water.

    The ribs & pulled pork are favorites of mine. The brisket is fine, but you can do better elsewhere. Their wings are a bit non-traditional, but really excellent, especially with Wango-Tango sauce!
