Oh Brothers and Sisters of Memphis, I have to admit to this! On a day trip to Syracuse, NY we ate at Dinosaur BBQ downtown and , OMG tasted just as good as Memphis BBQ!!! Never thought in upstate NY I would find just as good BBQ as home! Even the greens were the best I’ve ever had. Don’t know why some of these neg reviews , those reviewers don’t know true southern eats!
I’m still amazed, IN NEW YORK? Lol

A lot of people live this place. Their BBQ sauce is gross, Mac n cheese is horrible, cornbread is not good and all of it is extremely overpriced. Don't see the attraction, Kraft bbq sauce it's better. Texas Roadhouse has way better, meatier ribs for way cheaper. Their ribs are very very small and then they put their sauce on and overcharge. No thanks.

We have been here in the past and have loved the food as well as the atmosphere. This time was different. We orderered ribs and the first set were nearly meatless and burnt. We sent them back and got another set that was not as burnt but also meatless.

Our waitress was fantastic.

Visiting from out of State. (Iowa) Really didn't see what was so good about this place. Have had much better BBQ in my home state, Texas and Florida. I had the Cuban which was OK. Smoked pulled pork, smoked ham with some sauce on a Cuban bun. I can say I've been there. Doubt I'll return as there are so many other better places.
