Liverpool, New York
September 6, 2004
A full service bar and restaurant, the Dinosaur is open for lunch and dinner. Live blues music is performed 3 nights a week.
The menu has a full line-up of southern/BBQ favorites. For Palate Igniters (appetizers) start with fried green tomatoes, catfish strips or AK (ass-kickin) chili. Entrees from the pit feature ribs, steak, beef, and chicken with 2 homemade sides dishes. My personal favorite is the pulled pork sandwich platter w/ macaroni salad and tomato cucumber salad for sides. BBQ beef and chicken breast sandwiches are also availiable. For those with a hearty appetite, order one of the samplers from The Big Eaters Club.
Eating at the Dinosaur is an experience rubbing elbows w/ bikers, tatooed waitresses and downtown business people out for lunch.
The BBQ has become quite successful, now sells its sauces in supermarkets and online, has a cookbook for purchase, does local catering and opened a restaurant in downtown Rochester. The latest expansion is to NYC - scheduled opening is October 2004 on the Hudson River.
