        Fifth Dinosaur. Was just there last week and hands down the best in the city!

      2. Hill Country or Wildwood,

              I Think Hill Country has the best BBQ in the city. Especially their brisket and sausage, I find RUB to be way to smokey and can be dry. As someone who is married to a Syracuse alumni I also have to say Dinosaur is #2

            2. Dinosaur and Hill Country are both excellent. I can't coment on RUB because I was only there once when it first opened. But if you are trying to impress a girlfriend, I suggest Blue Smoke. It is the nicest restaurant of the group. Try the Texas Salt & Pepper ribs. Dinosaur is a madhouse and Hill Country has you go to different counters to order different items, so it can be difficult to navigate.
