Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, recently named the Best Barbeque restaurant in the U.S. by Good Morning America, just finished expanding the restaurant this past weekend.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que finished renovating upstairs to make room for entertainment. The room upstairs is going to be used for private parties, concerts, comedy shows and an overflow room on very busy weekends.This popular restaurant is also looking at the possibility of expanding to other cities in the Northeast including Albany, Buffalo, Boston, Providence and Philadelphia.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que expanded to Rochester in 1998 and New York City in 2004 and has been successful so far and they expect the concept to be successful elsewhere too.
"I think the concept works in other cities because BBQ is kind of something that brings everybody to the same level--- it's not high end," Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Office Manager, Lindsey Amorese said.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que said it has not felt the impact of the current economy as much because they provide a unique ambiance that is unmatched. Their food does not hurt business either.
The restaurant expects people who come to the restaurant for the food will come, now, for the entertainment as well.
