Let’s just start out by saying: food-gasm, joy-gasm, soul-gasm. H.O.L.Y S.H.I.T. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is amaZING. Located at 700 W. 125th street in Harlem, this BBQ was the absolute best thing I have ever tasted. Yes, it is a bit of a trek, but it is worth every subway fare, cab ride, bus stop or bike path it takes to get you there. Before I get into what we ordered, I would like everyone to know that the Bar-B-Que beans have pulled pork marinated into the sauce…I mean….C’MON!
We ordered: Bar-B-Que Pork Ribs w/ sides of Mac&Cheese and Potato Salad, Big Ass Pork Plate with sides of Beans and Cole Slaw, Half BBQ Chicken Plate w/ a side of Beans and Mac&Cheese, and an Original Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ sides of Beans and real Mashed Potatoes w/ Gravy.
The ribs, my meal, were falling off the bone and straight into my satiating mouth with effortless grace. The venue is also great! It is a massive, open space, reminiscent of a hoe-down, that belongs in the heart of Texas. As expected, it is a little on the pricey side, but not outrageous. We payed: $76.00 for four people, four dishes and a couple beers. The line is always long, so prepare to wait anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours. There is an awesome bar with live music you can wait at and the time fly by. Trust me, it’s worth it…you MUST go there and feed for yourself. During chow time, not a word was spoken. Mmm Mmm GOOD!
