If you are in Birmingham AL make sure you stop in and try Dreamland Bar-B-Que. Their sauce is to die for!! It has a sweet and tangy flavor that you will never forget. Make sure you try the bread too.
Real tough bar-b-que ribs – Today, December 23, 2006, we drove over to Dreamland Bar-B-Que ribs to get a slab of ribs and some potato salad. We got it to take out. We got home and started to eat the ribs and couldn't even get them off of the bones, they were sooooooo tough. They sure were not worth $17.95 + tax. We could not even eat them. However, the potato salad was quite good. I would certainly appreciate the money back for the ribs. Jimmy Estes, 85 Carson Village, Birmingham, Al. 35215. Thank you!!
Over Rated Tourist Trap – I have lived here all my life & I always heard about how good the ribs were at original Dreamland in Tuscaloosa Alabama. When they opened one in my area I was so excited. Then I ate there. The food is way overpriced & taste is just okay.
The South is known for its delicious BBQ but please don't go to Dreamland & think we southerners consider what they serve to be "good" BBQ. If you want to find good BBQ just ask a local to point out their favorite hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint. That is where we hide the real stuff.
I go there EVERY TRIP to Birmingham – Been there 4 times & all 4 times it's been good - quite good actually. I've had ribs in 3 or 4 other places in the Birmingham area & Dreamland's the best, TASTE-wise. Prices may be a bit higher than they should be, but so what - if you really like 'em, you won't mind.
Don't know quite what those other reviewers experinced, but I sure haven't seen/felt it.
This is good??? – I had heard very good things about Dreamland. However, upon trying thier ribs, I found most of what I'd heard to be wrong. The sauce had a good flavor, though nothing special. The meat itself was tough to chew in the middle surrounded by massive chunks of grissle at the ends. I love ribs, but I won't be eating here again.
"Average" – I had heard that Dreamland BBQ had the absolute best ribs in Birmingham. When I finally got the chance to try them, I was not satisfied. I could have gotten ribs somewhere else and been just as happy. It wasn't bad, but it was not all that it is cracked up to be. "OVER RATED" is how I would describe it.
overhyped. – its just bbq. the prices are way too high for what you get, the best thing i had there was the banana pudding!
So overrated – One good point about Dreamland is the fact that all the hype will keep the good bbq rest. less crowded. I will never understand why this is overpriced, fatty meat, tough ribs establishment is so famous. If you have to have it, buy a bottle of their sauce and grill out.
