Dinosaur BBQ scouting Buffalo locations, finally

Dinosaur Barbecue, the Syracuse barbecue joint that's a favorite of many upstate smoked pork aficionados, is considering a Buffalo location.

Dinosaur CEO John Stage gives Matthew Daneman of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle the scoop.

The Dinosaur has built quite a fan base as its leadership turned a biker joint and blues bar into a contender for the best Southern-style spare ribs, pulled pork and smoked chicken in the state.

Dinosaur outposts are now open in Rochester, Harlem and Troy, with plans for Newark, N.J., Stamford, Conn., and Brooklyn, Daneman reports.

Would a Dinosaur Barbecue be enough to draw citizens to the barren wasteland of the waterfront in winter? Could it survive between Sabres games? Or would a central location near Shea's and the convention center be more stable?

If they build it, we'll see who comes. Who says the Senecas have the corner on legalized gambling in downtown Buffalo?
