Dinosaur barbecue is a giant roadhouse joint located on 12th. Avenue in the hinterlands of Harlem. Boisterous, fun spot which was crowded on a Saturday afternoon. We started with the swag sampler which was deviled eggs, spicy boiled shrimp, fried green tomatoes and accompanying sauces. The dish for two was about $9 bangers and is not to be missed. Next up, I ordered the ribs which were recommended with two accompanying sides of mac and cheese and baked beans. The ribs were meaty though could have been more succulent inside, but the sides were bangin' with mac and cheese having a nice cheesy top and beans with chorizo and rib pieces were porkly good. My friend ordered the catfish which I did not try though her sides of amped up rice with cabbage and the creole potato salad were also yum. The dessert of sweet potato pie with pecans while presented beautifully was a little less so in taste. Come hungry and thirsty as their are good beers here too.
