Dinosaur Bar-B-Que’s Gowanus location (there’s a big outpost in Harlem, the original in Syracuse, and a few others throughout NY state) is a useful place to know about. It’s in a huge space that looks like a converted barn, so it’s big enough for your most popular friend’s birthday party, but it’s also good for a casual lunch or dinner with kids - or even eating pit-smoked chicken wings alone at the bar and watching sports on TV. Regardless of why you’re here, make sure to get the crunchy, cheesy fried green tomatoes.
