We found this restaurant just okay. The sides were good but the options are limited and they are served in styrofoam bowls. The ribs were okay, the sausage was good but we found the pork, which comes chopped, to have quite a bit of fat...More

I was excited to come try the food based on what I'd heard. Sadly, my experience did not live up to the hype. The food was average at best. The staff was friendly and attentive which is why I gave 3 stars but the food...meh.More

You come here for the ribs. What a disappointment. My wife and I travel, and eat ribs across the country. We ordered their special, a full rack of ribs. The ribs were the ‘toughest’ ribs we have ever had. This is a reflection of being...More
DavidBecham, thank you for stopping by and letting us know about your experience. We do indeed cook our ribs over an open pit on high heat. We’ve been cooking like this since Big Daddy opened the first Dreamland in Tuscaloosa in 1958. We understand that...More
Enjoyed Sunday afternoon dinner at Dreamland with wife and daughter. Biggest and best slab ever. Great cole slaw and beans. Ladies loved the pulled pork. Acacia served us with a smile. Picked up a cool T-shirt too.
SKI-MRG5, thank you for stopping by and for letting us know about your experience. We love that Acacia took great care of you and that you enjoyed your visit.
This place is consistently one of the best barbecue places in Alabama. I love coming here because you always get what you expect, high quality beef pork and poultry.
Rob C, thank you so much for letting us know about your experience. We are honored by your words and will strive hard to maintain the quality our guests like you expect!
Walked down from the Embassy Suites for a quick bite to eat. Great service , ordered their Brunswick stew, yum, yum, lots of meat and veggies.
Mac278, we appreciate you making the walk from the Embassy, and are so glad you enjoyed the stew. It is loaded with a ton of meat, veggies and of course Dreamland BBQ sauce!
Really great atmosphere. Staff is generally very nice. Food is almost always really good! Can be really crowded at lunch, so plan accordingly.
Thanks Becky B, we appreciate you stopping by and letting us know how we did.
I love it. The banana pudding is awesome. Friendly service and the atmosphere was great. It’s a must try.
Thanks PlatinumCeo, we appreciate you stopping by and letting us know how we did.
Whether you're in Tuscaloosa or Montgomery, or anywhere else in the state - mention Dreamland BBQ, and you'll get positive reviews! It's an Alabama institution, just as our famed universities are!!
oldvetsailor, we couldn't agree with you more! Dreamland is a state treasure and we take serving you very seriously. Dreamland will be 60 years old next year and we plan on being around for a whole lot more.
Really cool atmosphere in a convenient location in downtown Montgomery. Very friendly service. This would be a great place for a big group of friends to eat and drink. They had a nice local in-house micro brewery. The ribs were just average and the BBQ...More
Thanks Bigdean80, hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
