great sauce and great service and great location

Went here for lunch, service was spot on and quick and before the order was even taken it felt like the food was at the table. Not a huge amount of meat in the sandwich, but the sauce was tangy with a little kick. I would come back here many times, If I was in town.

My first experience with Dreamland was the location in Mobile Al, I was NOT impressed! Recently I tried the location in Montgomery Al and it was a lot better. Better Location, better food, better service.

I was a little skeptical since Dreamland is a chain restaurant, but the ribs were just great. The sauce was tangy and spicy and the meat on the ribs was tender and delicious. The ribs platter comes with 6 ribs which was a lot of meat. My side of macaroni and cheese was really good (way better than Martin's). Despite... More

Hands down the best bbq in the south. I have eaten bbq from Charleston to Kansas City. The service was friendly and quick and knowledgeable. We got the same great food and service at the Birmingham location as well.

I stopped by for a quick dinner while staying at the Embassy Suites in Montgomery. The atmosphere was fun, great attentive and friendly staff. I had the chicken nachos which were built with bbq flavored potato chips, coleslaw, cheese and chicken. Was really good but the banana pudding that I had for dessert was outstanding.

I have to say, I like the downtown location. The BBQ is good, but for me the sauce is too vinegar-y. I recommend going to the place, but it's not my favorite BBQ ever.

Visiting and enjoying Old Town Montgomery. Time to eat and we crossed paths with Dreamland. Looks good? Yes, let's try it. Friendly, relaxed, felt like home. Good service. Good food. I didn't want anything too heavy, so I got a salad. Boy was that a salad. Lots and lots of wonderful fresh chicken, greens and veggies. I took some back... More

By far the best BBQ in Montgomery. Great atmosphere, great food, decent portions and great service. I have been to this location no less than 10 times and it is extremely consistent.

I came with high hopes and that may be why the rating is low. I have to admit I was disappointed. The ambiance is what you'd expect for a BBQ place - rustic, like a barn or warehouse and I'm ok with that. I ordered a combination plate with ribs and chopped chicken. The sides were coleslaw and potato salad.... More
