The food was great! Of course we had the ribs which were full of flavor, tender, and smoked to perfection. It was very good and it’s a must try whenever you’re hungry for some really good BBQ.

The service was OK as was the BBQ. It is a commercial BBQ place and as such lacks the soul and heart of real BBQ. The original in Tuscaloosa was not the most polished restaurant but the ribs there was amazing.m That was the focus.....More

As far as BBQ places go it's passable as a clean cookie cutter restaurant but it's BBQ specialty which is supposed to be ribs lacks a lot to be desired. They are nothing like the original from which the whole chain gets its name.More

Jim E, Thank you for stopping by and letting us know about your experience. As you know, Dreamland was started 60 years ago by John "Big Daddy" Bishop in a "shack" in Tuscaloosa, AL. In the early 60's the ribs became so popular that they...More
