Dinosaur Bar-B-Que sets Feb. 12 opening for Buffalo restaurant

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

Fans of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que should be able to make their spare rib love real just in time for Valentine's Day.

John Stage, founder and chief executive officer of the Syracuse based barbecue chain, said the Buffalo store, at 301 Franklin St., should open Feb. 12. Speaking before all the restaurant's inspections were completed meant that date comes "with an asterisk."

New on the menu will be a barbecue meatball appetizer and a vegetarian Reuben sandwich built on smoked broccoli. The usual spare ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork and chicken anchor the meat categories.

Plans for the restaurant were announced in July of 2012 after word came a few months earlier that Dinosaur wanted to sink its teeth into Buffalo.

Hiring for the restaurant's staff of about 120 started in December. Construction was delayed several times as discoveries inside the building let to reshaping plans for its renovation, Stage said.
