Dreamland BBQ started in Tuscaloosa and has expanded across Alabama and the south. It doesn't have the ambiance of the original dreamland but the service and food are good.

If you want to check out the railway station, the riverfront park or catch a Biscuit’s ball game you should put Dreamland on your list. Parking and wait time might be issue because of the location to these local attractions. The BBQ was good and price the average the only thing I didn’t understand was the white bread served with...

Great ribs and I don't usually order ribs. I did here because of their reputation and they were super. Travel companion had a salad and baked potato and she was pleased. Short wait to be seated outside, but excellent service. These Dreamland places are Alabama legends for famous BBQ. You want say you have been to one !

Great Dreamland Ribs and BBQ nachos! Great area too. In the Alley area near Riverwalk Stadium. Ribs were delicious as i would expect from Dreamland. The BBQ nachos were huge and way more than we could eat as an appetizer.

It is always busy but they get you seated quickly and the food is worth the short wait. The brisket is my favorite but everyone else told me I was a fool because I passed on the ribs.

Have always heard of Dreamland as a must eat. We were quickly seated on a Friday night. Our waitress was kind, knowledgeable and efficient. Our food was brought out quickly. The first problem was my wife ordered a baked potato with just pulled pork. They brought out a plain baked potato with no pork. The manager walked by a short... More

like bland sauce, half a rack underdone ribs where more than half the rib is fat instead of meat, and costs ten bux for a half rack, then this is your place "with bread" means one slice of very sad looking white wonderbread looking bread my friend's chicken came out raw sure they brought her another but geez can't you...

Great food & good service. Kinda pricy for lunch. Would go back, again. Great atmosphere & music. Ribs a little fatty according to my husband. Chopped chicken sandwich was very good.

The food is cooked here just like it has been for the last 50 years. You must try the ribs with all the fixings to get that great flavor that we all enjoy. I always leave happy and full. the beer choices are great too.

Had lunch here today and, having heard about Dreamland for years, finally can give my opinion. I had chopped pork and sausage--both outstanding. Side of baked beans--top notch. Prices a little high for lunch, but the servings were good sized. Associate had ribs, and thought they lacked a bit. Place was busy and loud, but we got in and out... More
