I went to school in NC and have experienced some of the country's best over the years. I was skeptical about the potential to get good BBQ in NYC based on my recent experiences, which other than Smoke Joint in Brooklyn, which is good, were largely forgettable and paled next to NC. I finally went to Dinosaur yesterday after a meeting on 125th, and I was pleasantly surprised. Helpful friendly staff, good service, and yummy BBQ. I had a sampler which featured outstanding chicken, not dry or stringy, good chopped pork ( a bit sweet but good), and excellent ribs, along with delicious sides and cornbread. Excellent selection of dipping/hot sauces too. I will be going back, but I know it gets crowded!!!
