Ribs were outstanding. Service at the bar was just ok, but sufficient. It was the smell of amazing BBQ that lured me in from my hotel across the street. I literally followed my nose. Did I mention the ribs were outstanding? Great cole slaw too. Wait staff was kind with TV channel requests to enjoy hometown sports.

We go to Dreamland every visit to Montgomery. Great ribs. Service is good. It can get a little noisy there but it's just that kind of place. We also stroll to the river nearby.

We found this place close to where we stayed it was within walking distance. The meal we had ribs and sausage was very good, the serice was friendly and quick. We would eat there again. We enjoyed our meal there and would recommend this place.

My wife and shared the pork plate for lunch. Excellent barbecue pork! The baked beans were very good as was our potato salad. The patio seating in "the alley" is great. Great fans for air circulation.

I was already stuffed by the time we ate at Dreamland so I decided to share a plate of wings and Mac-n-cheese.. They both were tasty!

I know this is a local favorite and is lauded as the best BBQ in Montgomery, but to me it was just okay. The ribs didn't have the pink ring that denotes it being slow-smoked, and the sauce was clearly made with a base of Heinz 57. Although the wall has dozens of beer taps, they don't stock them and...

Best in Alabama Best in the South it's gotten better since the last time I ate here; The ribs are fantastically great; potato salad is better than Mom's; beer cold and tasty variety; This is the best BBQ anywhere folks. In the Capital City and in Tuscaloosa; if it's good enough for the Bear it must be great.

Upon walking into Dreamland the first time, it had all the promise of being a tasty BBQ joint. Everything was great with the exception of the food. The food is mediocre. BBQ sauce is a bit bland. Mac & Cheese is something out of a box. I will never go back there again.

I had high expectations of Dreamland....being a BBQ fanatic and eaten at places all over the country, the place had the right atmosphere, good aroma wafted through the air.....and I'm still dreaming. It was OK BBQ. I had a rib plate and the beans and potato salad were good. The ribs......minimal smoke ring, a hint of flavor, significantly tough meat... More
