server was very busy with large groups but still managed to serve us well, Our food came out hot and very timely since we had a show to attend near by time was important. The ribs and pulled pork were very satisfying and the creole deviled eggs as an appetizer I would recommend.
we would return.

We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation... dinner before the Joe Bonamassa concert a Shea's Buffalo. The restaurant is very convenient for a night out at Shea's! The hostess seated us right away- party of five at a perfect table! All had a beer from the great beer list- had a couple of Jameson's too. Food came quickly and was fantastic- nobody does Q like The Dinosaur. The waitress was friendly and attentive- great experience! We will be back!

I had the Chow Chow pork sandwich with the mini wedge Saldana with their house dressing. It was fantastic! I wanted more even though I was stuffed! Wait staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Will be back!

Dinner was great. Food was fantastic!! The pulled pork was on point..perfect bit of char and smoked flavor. My husband had the smoked cat fish..said it was like a taste of soul food. Even took our daughter she had a burger. It was cooked to her liking and her sides were great too. Would definitely go back.

Great time throughout! We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday and the venue was packed, but our reservations saved the day and our party of four was seated right away. Despite the big crowd, our server Lisa was with us promptly, very friendly and courteous, and brought drinks, appetizers and entrees as soon as they were ready. The food quality was outstanding, everything was excellent and in big quantities, so we loved it and will be back. Thanks Dino BBQ for being a big part of a very special evening for our family!

Good BBQ menu, excellent drink selections. Great, friendly service. A very good, consistent place for drinks and BBQ. Especially like their spicy recipe for black eyed peas as a side dish. Have gone there several times, and will stop back again. Very noisy atmosphere on Friday dinnertime.

We had been to a Dinosaur BBQ before, but this was our first visit to the Buffalo location. We were very pleased with the experience. We were seated promptly and our server, Michelle, was friendly and attentive, but not hovering. She was able to answer all our questions about the menu choices and got our order in as soon as we were ready. The food was excellent and we were able to finish and pay our bill in plenty of time to make the theater performance we were going to that evening. We will definitely be back!

Wrong food came out, found long human hair in food, all that was done was new fries were brought out. Meat was very fatty. Left hungry. Server was very friendly and offered free dessert. Overall not impressed, won't be returning.

First time to a Dino BBQ. Food was good quality and price (ribs were fantastic). Liked the live music. Booth location in bar area restricts the view of stage, should consider lowering or removing it. Music (not band, but regular) was way too loud. The music selection was not the best, which made it worse. Already a loud environment with the crowd, lights, signage, etc., music level in addition had me debating leaving (and I was there to see a band..lol). Overall a good experience and will recommend...especially if going to game/event/show/dancing or drinking in downtown afterwards.

A great BBQ place with a great location downtown with inexpensive parking nearby. My 1/2 chicken was flavorful, juicy, and tender. The baked beans, cornbread, and gumbo were nice sides. The cole slaw was good but I prefer a different style. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. I was there with 5 other friends. Everyone enjoyed the meal and experience.

My wife and I used to go all the way to Rochester for this food. Only going 2 to 3 times a year. NOW, having this one in Buffalo makes it easy to go more often. Love the menu and the prices. Food is outstanding. I have yet to find another barbeque as good?

Had a great time, food was unbelievable. Loved everything we ate. Sampler with fried green tomatoes was awesome. Sweetheart deal was to die for. Everything was so tasty. Beer flat board samplers were a nice touch for the boys.
