|Fried Green Tomatoes
|3/4 Rack with Salted Potatoes, Beans & Cornbread
After a trip to the American Museum of Natural History it made perfect sense (both geographically and thematically) to finally visit the famed Dinosaur BBQ joint in Harlem. We thought we were being clever by going at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon-not quite dinner, well past lunch- but were still facing an hour wait. We were way too hungry for that nonsense so turned into seat stalkers in the first-come, first-serve bar area. Our vigilance paid off and we ordered our beers (great selection!) and our meal.To start we ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes, hoping they might come out a little faster than our ribs. This plan backfired in that regard, but wound up being super delicious, so was still a good call. Between the two of us we split a 3/4 rack of ribs along with the salted potatoes, beans, and cornbread. Between the two BBQ sauces on the table, I actually preferred the original over the spicier one because it reminded me a lot of the sauce at Rudy's in Austin, TX.
It's no lie- the BBQ here is finger-lickin' good. However, given the distance (for us) and the insane wait, it's unlikely we will be making this journey again. We'll stick to Hill Country.
