Dinosaur Bar-B-Que - Harlem

Time Out says

There’s a reason why Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is perpetually packed with neighborhood families, leather-clad bikers and everyone in between: The smokehouse regularly appears on lists of the city’s best barbecue. Even though you’re here from the meat, you still might want to start the meal with some fried green tomatoes (three pieces for $6.99, five pieces for $8.99) or Creole deviled eggs (three pieces for $3.99, six pieces for $6.99). For your main course, choose plates piled high with St. Louis–style pork ribs (a half rack for $18.99, full rack for $28.99), slow-smoked brisket with pickled jalapenos ($18.99) or skirt steak with chimichurri and sauteed peppers ($20.99). All the plates come with sides, so you’ll have to take your pick from options such as barbecue beans, Creole potato salad, simmered greens, crispy coleslaw and mac and cheese. Diners who aren’t quite so hungry might go for one of the burgers or barbecue sandwiches. Wash the meal down with one of the 25 beers on tap.

The first time I came, I had a coupon that I took full advantage of and basically ordered everything on the menu. I ended up stuffed and happy and with lots of leftovers. The food here is very good. So good in fact, that my husband and I had our wedding reception here with a packed lunchtime buffet. If this means anything, our friends still talk about the food at our wedding. I know I'm supposed to say "come here for the meat" (which you should), but I'll also say "come here for the sides" (the curried succotash is my favorite). 

I cant get enough of this place. Go all out and get a platter, you can box up what you cant eat after! Portions are big here so pace yourself. The brisket is definitely worth a try too. If you go during peak times, you might experience a wait, this place is pretty popular and for good reason.
