Yes. Dinosaur BBQ was good. Darn good! First off, if you care for super-strong and super-girly drinks, you must try their Donkey Punch. It is pink, contains rum and a "variety of fruit juices", no umbrella, but a veritable fruit salad of garnish. If not, their beer on tap selection is vast and excellent. Situated under the westside highway, near my favorite Fairway (because the refrigerated section is a huge room that you need to put on specially-provided Fairway puffy coats to enter!), Dino BBQ is a little like an enormous grungy garage, hence a perfect place to eat barbeque. The joint was jumping last night and we ordered as much as we thought we could handle. Because we were with a large group, we erred on the side of less-spicy sauces, though all Dino's signature sauces are provided on the table, so I was able to soup my meat up to proper near-atomic levels.

Hits: Deviled Eggs, Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade, Jumbo BBQ wings w/ Wango Tango Sauce, BBQ Ribs, Syracuse Style Salt Potatoes (probably the best and most unique bbq side I've ever had), Devil's Duel Habanero Pepper Sauce

Misses: Potato Salad, Cornbread, BBQ Beans, our waiter taking forever to bring water and then not bringing enough

I'd like to go back and try a few more entrees, especially the brisket and pork shoulder. Overall, tasty food and a very festive vibe.
