I had barbeque chicken and ribs. The atmosphere was cool because they have paintings painted on the wall. It was a little crowded meaning not enough space because this is an older restaurant. Overall the food we had was good. I will return when I'm...More

We had a very nice experience eating dinner at Dreamland. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We had the ribs and BBQ plate and the smoked chicken salad. We also liked the old building and laid back atmosphere.

We stopped in on our way through Montgomert and Dreamland blew us away. The bar-b-que is great, the coleslaw was fantastic. Do not pass up the chocolate and banana pudding desserts.

If you want ribs, this is the place to go. They are so tasty that my mouth is watering just thinking about them. And the sauce--it's so good. My usual order is the rib plate, which comes with bread and two sides (potato salad, beans,...More
