BBQ Worth Trying

A group of us ate here prior to a Biscuits ballgame. Downtown location – very good food. Several of us tried various items, ribs were good, but a little dry. Pulled pork was very tender and moist. Great service and conveniently located near the Biscuits ballpark. They are very proud of their... read more

A must place today if you enjoy good barbeque. Serverers are very friendly, always with a smile. Just remember to have lots of napkins ready.

Had heard a lot about this restaurant so was anxious to try it. Got combo plate of ribs and sausage and ribs. Sausage was cold and the ribs tasted like they were boiled then thrown on grill. Service was fine, atmosphere could be fun in evenings. I will not be back

Great service and conveniently located near the Biscuits ballpark. They are very proud of their banana pudding – it was very good.

I enjoyed the 3 meat platter, the sauce is not the best but better than the average store brand. Fairly priced location with a decent selection of beers.

Nice BBQ spot downtown. Very good flavored southern bbq; no brisket! Darn. The sampler plate was very good. Wide selection of beers and the staff was pleasant and efficient.

Expected so much more from this establishment. Taste of the meat and sides you could find at any bbq joint, however the banana pudding is delicious. The atmosphere inside was okay but the real party is outside in the alley and beyond. So my suggestion would probably be to eat outside.

Good food (especially ribs and chicken), good beer and great staff. We had an early dinner here on the recommendation of the lady in the tourist office and enjoyed it so much we went back at the end of the week for take out. Lively atmosphere and our waiter entertained us trying out his British ascent on us.

We had an early dinner a few minutes before 5PM ane the place had a few customers. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our host was also the waiter. Starter beverages were prompt, but he missed the lemon I asked for with my iced tea. We ordered the nachos with bbq pork and chicken. The order was definitely enough to... More

Stopped in while traveling back from Florida; glad we did. Great ribs and had an awesome waiter. Restaurant is only 5 minutes or less from I-65/I-85 interchange.

We decided to take a daycation to Montgomery and Dreamland was on my list to try. It's located in a very cool area and it's very clean. You need to make sure you have money to feed the parking meters because you will need it. Parking was hard to find around lunch time but finally after circling around 3 times... More
