Our first visit to Dinosaur BBQ but it won’t be the last. Our group tried the brisket sandwich, BBS (brisket, bacon & Swiss), bacon burger and Carolina pork BBQ. Mac & cheese was rich and cheesy. Fries were a hit. Everything was delicious. We’ll visit...More

For a restaurant chain the food is pretty good. The atmosphere adds to the experience. It's a great place to take both friends and children.

Dinosaur BBQ is OK at best. I have been there enough times to reasonably conclude that there is nothing about the food in this restaurant that should make anyone feel that they must go there.There definitely are better choices in the area for BBQ.
