Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was started in 1983 to feed hungry motorcycle riders. It was a traveling concession, until finally putting roots down in Syracuse in 1988. Following this flagship store, more restaurants were opened in Newark and Stamford as well as New York's Rochester, Troy and Harlem. But nothing happened in Brooklyn's restaurant scene. Brooklyn was being denied delicious, nationally-acclaimed barbecue food . . . until now.

Well worth a trip out of Manhattan, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is an easy train ride and is located right off the R Train’s Union Street stop. It has a great beer menu, a kids' menu and outside seating.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que has a history of receiving plentiful accolades, being named the country’s #1 BBQ on Good Morning America, as well as being featured on the Food Network and a variety of travel shows.
