If spelling the word barbecue (bar-b-que? bbq?) wasn’t confusing enough, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que adds two new letters to the mix: “NY.” The business grew out of a split 55-gallon drum that the founder John Stage and his two partners deployed in 1983 at the Harley Rendezvous, a motorcycle gathering outside of Albany. Since then, it’s become a sit-down restaurant in Syracuse, and now there are eight locations across the Northeast (including one as far south as Baltimore). They offer live music, cold beer, and in a thoughtful nod to realities of dining in our high-anxiety times, an eight-page PDF “Allergy Reference Guide,” on their website.
