Dinosaur Bar-B-Que taking staff applications Saturday for February opening

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

For Dinosaur Bar-B-Que fans, Samantha Maziarz Christmann's story in today's Buffalo News has good news: The restaurant at 301 Franklin St. starts its hiring process Saturday.

And bad: Construction delays have pushed the expected opening to February.

The Southern-style barbecue restaurant and biker bar is scheduled to open in February at 301 Franklin, south of West Tupper Street. The opening has been delayed several times, something the company blamed on unexpected construction delays.

In removing the facade of the building, for example, workers uncovered a bas-relief globe adorning the front.

“What are we going to do? Get rid of it? No way. It’s too cool. And Dinosaur is all about the cool,” [Dinosaur spokesman Bob] Baker said.

Workers took time incorporating that and other discoveries into the restaurant’s design.
