The best barbecue in Syracuse

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Syracuse, located at 246 W. Willow St., is a building with a rich past dating back to the early 1920s. Previously home to various barrooms, including the N&H Tavern, our Syracuse restaurant opened its doors in 1988, initially serving only BBQ before introducing a full bar in 1991. Over the years, the restaurant underwent reconfigurations, including the addition of two private party rooms upstairs in the space formerly occupied by Andy’s Cycle Shop.

Our menu proudly offers a variety of options to cater to different dietary preferences, including Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Vegetarian choices. Please feel free to ask our hosts or servers for assistance. Kindly note that this location operates on a first-come, first-served basis and does not accept reservations.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Syracuse warmly welcomes everyone, including well-behaved dogs, to our outdoor seating areas.

At our Syracuse, NY location, we also provide off-site catering, pickup, delivery, drop-off with servers, and full-service options. Upstairs, you’ll find two private party rooms to choose from, or you can reserve both for larger gatherings. The main room comfortably seats up to 80 people with a full bar. Additionally, the Willow Room can accommodate up to 35 guests and offers a private balcony.
