Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Traveled on Foot

In its early days, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que spent its life on the open road, serving food at motorcycle shows, fairs, and festivals in the Northeast. Eventually, the dinosaur wanted to settle down, which is when a permanent location opened in downtown Syracuse, NY, in 1988. Since then, not only has the original location expanded in size, but six more locations have also opened throughout New York state.

If you're someone who values high-quality barbecue, you've come to the right place. Their food and sauces have repeatedly won honors in numerous publications, including Men's Health and Eating Well magazines. Their cookbook was also recognized as one of the best barbecue cookbooks in 2002 by the National Association of Barbecue.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que knows a thing or two about how to make great food.
