I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! As previously mentioned, LK + Slick + I spent America’s BD at Dana + Scott’s wedding in Syracuse, NY. We had such a blast celebrating w/ the happy couple!
However, when we weren’t busy with our numerous wedding festivities…
…we passed the time chowing down at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que! There wasn’t a whole lot to do in Syracuse, but Dinosaur kept us busy + stuffing our faces for hours – and we anticipated each return over the weekend!
Here’s the Q+DD on Dinosaur Bar-B-Que:
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is a restaurant, blues venue, and biker bar in Syracuse, New York. Opened in 1983 on Willow Street in downtown Syracuse, it specializes in authentic barbecue using a wood-fueled barbecue pit. The restaurant markets its sauce, pulled pork, chili, and baked beans at local supermarkets, and at Wegmans, Fairway, D’Agostino’s, Price Chopper, and Shaw’s Supermarkets across the Northeast. Two additional locations have also opened in Rochester, New York (in the old Lehigh Valley Railroad Station) in 1998, and Harlem, New York in 2004. In May 2009, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was voted America’s best barbecue in ABC’s Good Morning America poll, beating out entrants from across the United States. Approximately 4,000 out of the 7,500 participants in the poll selected Dinosaur Bar-B-Que as the best in the nation. (www.wikipedia.com)
Words do not do it justice. You must witness…
I know I can be a bit of an exaggerator from time to time, but I MEAN it when I say that this was some of the best BBQ I’ve ever had. It was even better than it looked! I can’t believe how much I ate there - I really can’t. The ribs. Oh, the ribs!
P.S. You can buy the Dinosaur cookbook + BBQ sauce online here: DINOS!
Point of this prehistoric post: Next time you are in NY, you absolutely must, must, MUST make a point to visit The Dinosaur! Honestly, booking a special trip for it might be necessary… DO NOT pass up an opportunity to get down and dirty w/ some BBQ there! Trust me.
