This is the original, only ribs and sausage available. But that was plenty! Forget the sides. While the slaw and potato salad needed some seasonings, the sausage was outstanding almost like a German wurst flavor. The ribs were large and full of flavor with dark crunchy edges and a great sauce.

Taking out-of-town guests to Dreamland is a tradition here in Tuscaloosa because people who follow college football already know about it (from raves of sportscasters). Though lots of franchises are springing up--even one by the river in neighboring Northport--- be sure to go to the original to experience the true flavor of Dreamland, the ambience of the old roadhouse/barbecue shack of the South. The sauce is spicy and the ribs are meaty. And sadly, the quality of the ribs is inconsistent. I've been there when people say they are the best they have ever had and I have agreed. But, at other times, they are just ribs. And for someone who doesn't eat much bread, much less white bread, that soft white bread dipped in the barbecue sauce is always a treat! To say that you have truly been to Tuscaloosa, you have to eat at Dreamland!

Don't expect much in the way of ambiance or extras, this place is all about ribs, and man are they good. It is an experience that I truly recommend to anyone who enjoys Bar B Que ribs.

If you ever come to Tuscaloosa you must go to Dreamland. I recommend the original location if you want to get the real feel of Dreamland. The ribs are great and I LOVE their BBQ sauce. I have even shipped the BBQ sauce out of state to relatives! Definitely a must during football season. Roll Tide!!!
