This is the first Dinosaur BBQ to open in history. Built in the early 1920’s, 246 W. Willow St. was the home to various barrooms, including the N&H Tavern, for more than 50 years. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que opened its doors in 1988, selling only BBQ before opening the full bar in 1991. The restaurant was reconfigured a few times, including adding two private party rooms upstairs in what was formerly Andy’s Cycle Shop. At the Syracuse location, we have off-site catering, along with pickup, delivery, drop off with servers and full service. At the restaurant upstairs you can choose between two private party rooms or choose both. The main room seats up to 125 people and also has a stage with a sound system and a full bar. The Willow Room seats up to 40 and has a private balcony with additional seating for 18.
