Anand & I have been meaning to get to this place since we moved here. The stars finally aligned at the end of a 3 mile run. We were running from Grant's Tomb (more on that later), when we both heard our stomachs talking. And lo and behold, Riverside Drive led us straight to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. It was a sign, and we had to follow it. Forget that we still had to run the 2ish miles home.
As soon as we entered I knew it was going to be good - mainly because I could smell the deliciousness and I haven't been able to smell in 2 weeks because I've been sick.
Anand got a sampler of the meats (pulled pork, ribs, and brisket), while I got a 1/2 rack of ribs. The great (or not so great) part is that you get 2 sides and cornbread with every entree.
While I usually only like ribs that are so soft they'll fall right off the bone, which these ribs were not, the meat was very flavorful (again, I haven't been able to smell or taste in 2 weeks, so this was epic for me). I didn't care too much for my sides - the soukatash and mac & cheese. But Anand's stewed greens and creole potatoes were awesome. Also, the brisket. Get the brisket!
Even though I didn't like my sides too much, this meal made me want to come back for more.
