About Dinosaur Bar-B-Que:
In 1983, a mobile concession stand appeared on the streets of New York City. It cooked fabulous bar-b-que out of a 55-gallon drum that had been cut in half. Owner John Stage came up with the idea during a motorcycle rally, and for the first several years, Stage took this sauce-covered show on the road, attending gatherings of bikers and doing a killer business.
In 1988, the first storefront Dinosaur Bar-B-Que opened in Syracuse. There are now 7 locations, including the one in West Harlem that is popular with guests of our NYC Hotel. The menu is a bit longer than you might expect, but the offerings are just what the name implies.
In addition to their fabulous pork ribs, sold by ¼ rack, ½ rack, ¾ rack, or full rack, you’ll also find a host of other options. The combos are a great way to sample more than one of this Restaurant’s top dishes. Try the ribs along with smoked hot link sausage, BBQ brisket, pulled pork, or ½ a chicken.
Other top picks are the West Texas Beef Ribeye, BBQ Beef Ribs Korean Style, BBQ Jerk Salmon, Chicken Steak, or Bronzed Catfish. The specialty sandwiches are also a hit. Try the BBQ Brisket, Churras so Chicken Breast, or a big juicy burger. Somewhat surprisingly, there are even a couple of options for vegetarians. The Veg Smoked Portobello or the Fried Green Tomatoes with Pimento Cheese mean that you don’t have to leave the vegetarians back at the Hotel while you dine at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.
