It's not that the pork ribs, the beef brisket, and the Texas hot links aren't good. It's just that the giant spice-rubbed and pit-smoked chicken wings—as toothsome an appetizer as ever was dipped into a tiny plastic cup of blue-cheese dressing and chased back with a celery stick—are such a hard act to follow. Considering the raucousness of the crowd, the hostess and the servers are surprisingly in control, like professional rodeo hands. And despite the faux-roadhouse décor, there seems to be an abundance of genuine honky-tonk women barreling about the premises, which is pretty much what you want in a barbecue joint.


Dinosaur Bar-B-Que has live blues every Friday and Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
