Love this place. Ribs and their sauce are amazing. Service is always on point along with the meals. Must go place for an affordable meal with friends and family.

I ordered the half rack of ribs with mac n cheese. The ribs were succulent and juicy and the sauce was plentiful. I left plenty of room to try their famous Banana (Nana) pudding- oh wow! I had to order a portion to take away.

BUT, my niece and I want to highly recommend their nana puddin. OMGsh so good, we drove back before leaving to get a 1/2 pint to take back to... More

Located near the UAB campus this was a very pleasant find for supper the first night of our vacation. Sandwiches were heaped height with pulled pork and the ribs were meaty and very tasty. The cook said he smoked about 250-300 racks of ribs a night. Our grandson enjoyed talking with the cook and seeing all the racks of ribs... More

You'd never know from the outside that this place has a neat, country atmosphere. The staff is efficient, very friendly and helpful to first visitors like us. Their specialty is ribs. You can watch the cook throw slab after slab on an open wood fire grill. The seasoning is just salt while cooking and an added unique sauce at the... More

We were in Birmingham two nights and ate here twice. The staff was friendly and helpful to out of towners. We had sandwiches and two different sides. Everything was very good. They serve banana pudding for dessert and it was creamy and not too sweet. The food was served very fast. Overall a great experience.

I had a unique encounter with this Birmingham location of Not so Dreamy land BBQ! Me and my husband visited this location in turns from his childhood. He always told me how wonderful the food was here. We set our standards high only to be smacked down! From the first 10 steps in the door, the manager was rude to... More

Had a party of 8 from kids to great grandparent, other than some slight mix ups by the new waitress everything was great. I can't knock the place for a few little newbie mistakes. The only reason I did not give the 5th star is because while we all go to BBQ to eat BBQ, not everyone likes so much... More

We stopped here on our way to Memphis and were very pleased. The pork was tender and tasty. The beans were very good too. We headed to Memphis and expected the BBQ to be fabulous but were comparing them to Dreamland and they came up short. We would live to return.
