Good food, but not fancy. That's the charm. Everyone should visit the original location at least once.
Sorry. But this place was not very good. It was my first visit and the waitress recommend the ribs. That's probably because they were left over from the night before. They were so tough I could not hardly bite into them. When I mentioned my displeasure I was offered two more ribs in place of those returned. Again not very... More
My ribs were poorly prepared - the meat (what there was of it) was tough and clung tenaciously to the bones. I didn't find the atmosphere anything special, either. Archibald's is close enough and smoking up perfection - they'll be glad to serve you the best.
The potato salad and banana pudding were also amazing! It may be hard to find, but it's worth the drive. They don't have a lot of items on their menu because they don't have to!
Dreamland is the true, southern BBQ experience. Go to the original restaurant on Jug Factory road to step back in time. The ribs are the standard by which we judge all others. Love the sauce!

I was taken here by locals when I first moved here. Ribs were okay, but there are better in Tuscaloosa. Shack atmosphere is amusing -- once. I have never felt the need to return.
Dreamland offers delicious barbecue ribs. The menu is limited, but the experience is one-of-a-kind. No trip to Tuscaloosa is complete without a trip to Dreamland.
Went here when we first moved here because the locals kept telling us "you have to go to the original Dreamland"...ribs were soooo salty. Haven't been back since.
