Who? Dinosaurs! Here's a thought - maybe dinosaurs never became extinct, they've just been hanging out at 131st Street at DINOSAUR BAR-B-QUE! eating barbeque. And who can blame them - it's finger-licking-good eating. I have no idea why it's called DINOSAUR BAR-B-QUE! Portion-size? Size of the ribs? Or maybe it's the Dinosaur Good Eatin' Prayer - Get down on your knees, and put up your paws, thank the good Lord for the use of your jaws.
We were joined by our good friends who were good enough to introduce us to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que - Pam and Eric -- and many dino-thanks to them!
My favorites were the chicken wings (medium heat) - spice rubbed, pit smoked, then finished on the grill - and the fried green tomoatoes - crispy fried, sprinkled with Pecorino Romano cheese and served with cayenne buttermilk ranch dressing. The meal started there and could have ended there for me and it's all I want to eat since then.
I loved the pulled pork - excellent! The brisket was also a table fave. I thought the ribs were just OK but maybe by the time I reached those and the BBQ chicken - I was already on the full-side. Hot sauces can be seen above. The beer menu gives you plenty to choose from - it's dino-big too.
The location is up in Harlem right by the big Fairway.
