Arrived to find the place was packed but found a seat at the bar. Service was friendly and prompt. Menu has something for everyone. My dinner was very good. Also has a very good beer selection. Good value for the money.

If any one comes to Rochester, it is a must visit place.

If BBQ is known for Southern cooking, don’t discount the northern cousin. Pulling meat off the bone and savory taste.

And local band plays on weekends. The view of river running below is beautiful!

Nice menu. Food was very good. Our server greeted us with a smile and was helpful with suggestions. Prompt with drink refills and we enjoyed ourselves.

Want a great caterer for a special event? Look no further than Dinosaur BBQ! We hosted an outdoor rehearsal dinner for 100 people this weekend and Dinosaur truly hit it out of the park! They arrived a couple of hours before the event and worked their magic with the smoker. Pulled pork, mojito chicken, and RIBS!! Oh the ribs!!!! We had guests from Texas at our party and they were raving about the ribs! Better than Texas? You bet! Add in some cornbread, Cajun corn, salt potatoes, and coleslaw and you have yourself a feast! So yes, I guess you could say the food was a huge hit - but so was the service! Fabulous all around! Thanks Dinosaur for delivering such a great experience!

This is an iconic Rochester restaurant. If you want barbecue food that compares with anywhere in the country, this is the place. I’ve eaten there several times and have not been disappointed. Their signature brand sauces are incredible. If you’re local and want to give Your out of town quests a meal they’ll remember, the Dinosaur is it!
