Dinosaur Bar-B-Que will open at the Times Union Center on South Pearl Street on Friday —just in time for the Darius Rucker concert.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que opened in Syracuse in 1988 and came to Troy in 2010. Other New York state Dinosaur restaurants are located in Rochester, Harlem, Brooklyn and Buffalo. The chain also has stores in Connecticut, Illinois and Maryland.
People at the Times Union Center for ice skating shows, basketball and hockey games and concerts will now be able to order savory snacks such as pulled pork and brisket sandwiches, barbecued beans and chili.
