I have never had bad ribs. Dry ribs, overcooked ribs,all ribs are good ribs. These ribs however are the best. The barbecue is also great.The sauce is spectacular.The atmosphere is as one would want and expect for a rib/barbecue place. Parking is difficult, but you won't mind. If you are looking for ribs, you must try Dreamlands. You will not... More

I enjoy good barbecue and have had excellent barbecue from a number of places. Dreamland offers some of the best and most flavorful that I have had anywhere. Since we were a large group I was able to sample a number of items. I ordered the "Big Daddy" pork sandwich and it was flavorful and moist with a large amount... More

When you are in Birmingham, you must find this place and enjoy the wonderful BBQ. The ribs smelled out of this world, but I chose the pulled pork and I wasn't disappointed. It was mouth watering. Go and enjoy!

We found Dreamland Bar-b-que using Trip Advisor's "Near Me Now" function on the mobile app as we were driving home from New Orleans to Frankfort, KY. We stopped in based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we're glad that we did! Although we thought the GPS was off - it looked like we were going into a residential area (and... More

After moving to Birmingham five years ago from a few year stint in the cold NE, I had developed an obsessive appetite for good BBQ. And Birmingham is clearly a town that knows its good Q from bad Q. I hate to give Dreamland an average rating but the hubbub that has been generated about the food certainly precedes the... More

Yes, we got a ton o' ribs, and they were deeeelicious! It was walking distance from my sister's place, so we headed over there for dinner. So much food, I couldn't even believe it. 1 rack easily served 2 people, and we are big eaters.

The ribs are beyond amazing. Just enough of a crunch on the outside but still juicy and tender on the inside. 1 rack will serve at least 2 people. Make sure you sit in Amy's section, she is a joyful server!

While the basic ambience remains the same, Dreamland has now added a surprising number of other offerings, I suppose to accommodate a variety of tastes. Service was fast and food delicious, as usual.
