I think it was Southern Living that recently posted the best BBQ place in Alabama is Dreamland BBQ. I'm personally a HUGE fan of The SHED in Mississippi. We were in Tuscaloosa so 4 of us tried it. I was very disappointed and probably wouldn't go back. The service was very sub standard. One of our guest asked for dressing... More

My wife and I were traveling back after a whirlwind weekend trip and decided to stop in the Tuscaloosa area on the way home for a bite. We have been to the original Dreamland BBQ in Tuscaloosa but decided to try the other Dreamland in the area in Northport. Before we walked in the smell of the BBQ was intoxicating.... More

Excellent experience. Kyle our server was fantastic. My family ordered the 1/2 rack, pork sandwich and a wrap. All were very good. Started off with the fried okra and would order it again. For sides we had beans, mac and cheese and coleslaw. The slaw was very good if you like it creamy and on the sweet side. The beans... More

Expected to be impressed because of the publicity,but was not. The meat was dry and the sauces were vinegar.Have had good barbeque in Alabama, and have had good barbeque when old Pop Bishop was alive ,but this is nothing special.
