Yup yup.  Just stop by from 3-7, Monday to Friday, and get a $1 off of all beer, liquor, and wine.  Plus, have your pick of some of their best apps for just $5:  chili on the half-shell, our favorite Dino Poutine, or two pork, beef, or burger sliders.  Did you know that people went seriously crazy for the Dino Poutine after our review of Dinosaur Bar-b-que?  We’re not talking just people in Fairfield County…we’re talking in the entire Northeast.  Specifically, when Dinosaur Bar-b-que shared that they would be adding Dino Poutine to all Dinosaur menus after people begged and signed away their first born, they shared our article and a picture of the heavenly dish.  Would you believe that one picture got thousands of views, 173 likes on FB, and tons of comments?  Seriously, how could anyone deny the power of the poutine?  In addition, Dino Stamford will be providing a smaller stash of wings for just $3.95.

Not like you really need another reason, but we just gave you another reason to justify your BBQ addiction.  Yes, you’re welcome. ;)

From Brisket, to Cornbread, to Ribs: Dinosaur Bar-b-que Roars into Stamford – Exclusive First Tastes

Update:  see our complete review here.

Good things come to those who wait.  That’s the BBQ creed, you know?  Time is your friend when it comes to smoking up some ribs, bringing out that smoke ring, and making things delicate.    Well, we kind of feel the same way about Dinosaur Bar-b-que here in Stamford.  When we heard rumblings of Dinosaur opening in Stamford, we got the news straight from the Dino’s mouth and were the first to share it.  We also gave you an interview with owner and pitmaster, John Stage, breaking down his BBQ, his style, and what to eat in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.  Well, lucky OmNomCT was invited to a special sneak peek a day before the opening and we even had a chance to chat with John Stage himself.  What a really nice guy!  So, if this is the first time you’re hearing about Dinosaur Bar-b-que, here’s a crash course:

  • Dinosaur Bar-b-que Stamford Pig WelcomeJohn Stage started Dinosaur Bar-b-que as a mobile BBQ truck that followed biker rallies and events.
  • He opened up Dinosaur in Syracuse in 1988  because people couldn’t get enough Dino.
  • Dinosaur Syracuse quickly became a rite of passage for BBQ lovers and a place of pilgrimage for bikers across the country.
  • Dinosaur Bar-b-que became a cult, a legend.
  • Dinosaur Bar-b-que sauces are sold in stores now for your slathering, BBQ, and grilling needs.
  • Dinosaur Bar-b-que has taken over Harlem, Newark, Rochester, Stamford, Syracuse, and Troy.  Dinosaur Buffalo is on the way.

Now, dear friends, we’re pleased to share with you…the first BBQ slathered, rib-sauce all over your face, hands sticky beyond all recognition because of brisket juice review of Dinosaur Bar-b-que Stamford.

Are the rumors true? Is Dinosaur Bar-b-que coming to Stamford, CT?

10 Apr

Update:  as of 5 pm, 12/5/12, Dinosaur Stamford is open.  Check our review!

 If you haven’t had a chance to try Dinosaur BBQ yet, then either get into NYC stat or take a weekend trip up to one of their three upstate locations in Syracuse, Rochester, or Troy, because it is da bomb! See, I grew up about 45 minutes from Syracuse and went to Syracuse University, so I would hit up Dinosaur BBQ whenever I had the chance. What exactly is Dinosaur BBQ you might be asking? *ahem, blasphemy* Dinosaur BBQ is a down and dirty BBQ joint and bar that started as essentially a food truck touring motorcycle shows, fairs, and festivals before settling down at their first location in Syracuse in 1988. See, good things do start in upstate NY (like moi, hehe). Now, all four locations are frequented by bikers and BBQ lovers alike. With fantastically tender ribs and pork, delicious side dishes like to-die-for potato salad, and sauces so good they’re sold at grocery stores across the U.S., Dinosaur BBQ can rival any seasoned BBQ joint of the south!

So, when we heard a rumor a few weeks ago that my beloved Dinosaur BBQ is coming to Stamford, CT, I almost exploded with excitement.  But, never being ones to spread rumors without a little fact checking, we emailed Dinosaur BBQ’s corporate office for some answers.  So, word from the horse’s mouth is they are in negotiations for a Stamford spot (supposedly in the up-and-coming Harbor Point area), but nothing is final yet. Now it’s final. :)

So, we promise to update this post as soon as we hear more, but it sounds like things are moving along well.  Until then, there’s a Facebook page to rally for Dinosaur BBQ to come to Stamford. Hey, I know it won’t make it happen any sooner, but we can all hope, right?
