Dinosaur Bar-B-Que - New York, NY

A few weeks ago, AI took me to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for V-day. Dinosaur is a restaurant that had been on my list of restaurants to try for quite some time. My first experience with food from this establishment was a little over a year ago at the 2004 Taste of New York event. They had a booth set up where they served miniature pulled pork sandwiches. I love meat, so that sample was enough to encourage me to make the trek up there. Many of you are probably wondering why it took over a year to make the trip to this restaurant. The explanation is quite simple. The restaurant is located at 131st Street and 12th Avenue. That may be only a few miles away from midtown, but by New York standards, 131st street might as well be the other side of the country. AI had heard good things about the restaurant as well, so she decided to surprise me by taking me there.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was started in 1983 by a group of motorcycle bikers in Syracuse, NY. Over the past 20+ years, they opened up additional restaurants in Rochester, NY and New York, NY. They also sell their own line of bbq sauces, dressings, and other merchandise.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que's menu is quite extensive. The first page begins with a full array of appetizers such as fried green tomatoes, buffalo wings, and spicy shrimp. On the second page, they start their long list of entree items. They have pork ribs, pulled pork, bbq brisket, and bbq chicken. On the third page, they have their two and three meat combination platters and special items such as a rib-eye steak, catfish, and korean style ribs. On the last page, they have a laundry list of bbq sandwiches. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que also has 12 different homemade sides to accompany the entrees.

AI and I skipped the appetizer, and we ordered the Sweetheart Deal for two. The Sweetheart Deal for two is 2 pieces of honey hush cornbread, 4 sides, and a full rack of ribs. For our sides, we ordered mac & cheese, Syracuse style salt potatoes, fresh cut fries, and bbq beans. Within 5 minutes, our order arrived, and my mouth immediately started to water. The meat was very moist and falling off the bone. The ribs were very flavorful, but I did prefer using the bbq sauces at the table. Each table had four or five different types of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que sauces. I tried using a different sauce on each rib I ate, and by doing so, it made each bite a little different. The sides were a little above average with the exception of the mac & cheese. Although I don't like mac & cheese very much, the mac & cheese at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que has a unique taste to it because they put seasoning on top of it. I'm not sure what was in the seasoning, but it gave the mac & cheese a bit of extra kick.

I was very happy with our trip to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Friends of mine say that I should also try Rub and Blue Smoke. Hopefully, I can hit those up relatively soon.

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I to
find this topic to be really one thing which I believe I might never understand.
It sort of feels too complex and extremely wide for me.
I'm taking a look ahead to your subsequent post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm
trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

With thanks!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
