just love this place! the food, the people, the whole deal - it is just the best. a friend introduced me to DBBQ when I first moved here about 5 years ago. We ended up here again just this weekend and it is as good as it was that first time i visited it 5 years ago! Best place around. Ann Prince, Rochester, NY

As an employee of Dinosaur BBQ I have to inform you that the building has a serious M0use infestation problem. The restaurant itself has gone through 3 different extermination companies to rid the building of m!ce. To there dismay the problem persists. I have had a number of occasions when I have either seen m!ce, m!ce sh!t, dead m!ce, or m0use traps. The place is a filthy dive and should be burnt to the ground.

Let's be fair here folks. Dinosaur is not great as many of you have said. The food is decent tasting but the price is high. Honestly the last ribs I got there were dry. I got better ribs from Country Sweet. No offense to Country Sweet but you expect a little better than that from Dinosaur. The location as it sits right on the river is unique, but parking...forget about it! Now I feel obligated to offer a bit of my own impression about the staff. Have any of them ever heard about bathing and hygiene? I realize this is not a suit and tie restarant but c'mon already! It looks like the cooks are there because their tattoo shops are slow and they needed something to fill the time. Face piercings, tattoos, dreadlocks, unkept facial hair and sloppy appearances are getting to be socially acceptable but PLEASE not where I come to eat. Clean it up a bit folks. They laugh and joke around behind the grills over the open food. I apologize for painting this mental picture of an unclean restarant. I am sure they have an approved set up but it just doesn't suit my liking. Those of you who love this place and think I am out of line I invite you to check it out for yourself next time you are in there. Go to the take-out area and just watch for a minute or two. The folks from out of town, you can do better. Try Sticky-Lips, Famous Dave's or if you can find Uncle Ralph cooking at a local place in town...go there! Uncle Ralph is what BBQ is. Sticky-Lips food is better than Dinosaur although the location isn't any better. Famous Dave's is a chain restaurant but still does well. Bottom line...Dinosaur is ok if you don't mind bad parking, long waits, dirty staff and high prices.

My Husband and I have been eating at the Dinosaur BBQ For over 5 years, and we absolutely love it.
The Service is wonderful, we have made good friends with many of the employees there.
They also were used when we got married, we ordered all our food for our outside reception from the Dinosaur BBQ. They delivered it , fresh and Hot and the portion sizes were awesome.
we had left overs for days!
I personally Love their pulled pork and Ribs the best, and did I mention...Their Deserts are fantastic as well.
If you are a Resident of Rochester, or just passing through, stop in to the Dinosaur today.
You definately will not regret it.

Great BBQ, location, and casual ambience. Absolutely everything we had to eat was delicious, including creole mustard chicken wings, ribs, roasted corn, and BBQ beans. The beer selection was impressive, served a little too cold for my taste though. The place is very popular so it gets a little crowded, but everyone's pretty friendly. You can't go wrong with the food!
