We enjoyed a very tasty lunch on Valentine's Day. Food and service were both excellent. Our server's bubbly personality certainly enhanced the dining experience. Everything we ate was delicious but the fried green tomatoes and smoked chicken wings were outstanding.

I'm glad I made the table reservation at that time because by the time we sat down in 10 minutes people were waiting for a seat. We got our food in 15 minutes had to be the fast time ever. We had dinosaur Bar-B-Que at the New York State fair.

I have been to the Dinosaur BBQ restaurants in both Rochester and Syracuse so I felt my experience would be equal, I was wrong. We were celebrating our friends birthday so I thought this would be a fun place to go. The overall atmosphere was the same with the exception of the music, it was too loud. The food was awful, overdone, dry and sparse. We ordered poutine, it was French fries sparsely covered in gravy with very little cheese. I ordered a combo platter, the meat was dry and tough. The macaroni and cheese was hard and dry. The beans and cornbread were really good. My guests had never been to Dinosaur BBQ and after our experience I'm sure they won't return. Our Waitress was wonderful, she was full of personality and knowledge.

Great food and our waitress was fabulous ! The hostess was a bit of a ditz - never marked our reservation that we showed up and sat us in a corner, felt like I was in a time out. When asked if we could move, she said there wasnt anything available.... there were plenty of seats, it was only 430pm and they did not get really start getting busier till 530. Our waitress was a a real gem and very helpful. Good food for the price! I would not take younger kids there however as their bartenders(females) and one waitress in particular (not ours) barely had their "top half" covered and it was like a free show.... not professional

Loved the food. Very delicious and filling. Nice variety of different beers. I liked that they explained the flavors. My only complaint would be that it can get very loud so it makes it hard to hear when conversing so you have to lean in.

It was our first visit. Although our waitress was a litle peculiar, and a tad bit unprofessional, and we had an issue with one of our dishes, the manager quickly and efficiently rectified the situation. He was very accommodating and did everything to make the situation right which showed excellent customer service.

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had. This was for a special occasion and it was absolutely horrible. The service was rude and out of line. Then to top it off the food was less then par. Its way over priced for portion size then it was cold and dried up almost as if it was pre made on the plate way before it was actually ordered. Needless to say don't waste the time or money, I know I never will again.

For New Year's Eve, we dined at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Q in Columbus. It was a great place to take our two teenagers, and with a fun staff, inviting atmosphere and excellent food - we were very happy with our choice! We walked from our hotel (Embassy Suites) so the restaurant is very "within walking distance" of downtown Buffalo. Highly recommend a great value, for some excellent food.

Dinosaur BBQ is my favorite BBQ restaurant starting in Syracuse and now trying to visit the other locations. First time here in Buffalo location and as always love it! Especially enjoy the Wango Tango Wings and Tres Ninas! Service great and food cannot be beat! Yum!

Dinosaur was referenced as a great place to eat by a friend. We agree with that recommendation and enjoyed the food and staff. Would have given the food a 5 star but the New England clam chowder was overly salty and the cajun brussel sprouts lacked any definitive flavour. Otherwise the ribs, corn bread and other sides were exceptional.
We will be back!!!!

The place was packed but we were seated on time for our reservations. Waitress was exceptional: helpful and friendly, stopped by several times at each of her tables even though her area was full. Food was awesome, as always and was delivered in a timely fashion.

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!
