Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Review

What started as a darling of the biker crowd has evolved into a regional hot spot for pork sandwiches, barbecued ribs, and, on most nights, live blues. Chicken, beef, and pork are prepared barbecue, Cajun, and even Cuban style. Try a side of salt potatoes for some local flavor. On Friday and Saturday, waits can run as long as 90 minutes; the full-service bar, with 17 beers on tap, helps pass the time. In July and August, you can eat at one of the sidewalk picnic tables.

    Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Review

    The special parking lot should tell you something as soon as you reach the front door. Primo space is provided for those arriving on two wheels and just about every spot is taken. Bikers in Syracuse must love their barbecue and they don't want to walk too far to get it. You won't be thrown out if you arrive driving something without handlebars. You won't even be asked to leave if you order or even find the one or two non-barbecued items on the menu. And be warned . . . even the reuben is barbecued here. If there is such a thing as fusion barbecue cusine, the dinosaur has discovered it. Expect a wait too if you arrive even at off time. Syracuseans love this place. Maybe New Yorkers too since it has spread to locations in Rochester and Manhattan. Wherever do they park the bikes in Manhattan???
