This is the best place for Bar B Q in Huntsville!!! The ribs just fall off the bones. The sauce they make is wonderful! The Salads are a Masterpiece. Did I tell you about the ribs? I can't wait to get back there in June 2017. My family and friends meet there and just laugh and eat and laugh and... More

Service was good. I ordered the ribs and husband ordered the chicken. Ribs meal was actually a large portion and was somewhat rough. Ribs weren't my favorite but food have a smoky flavor. Chicken was delicious. Great smoky flavor and the breast section was juicy. Dinner of the best chicken I have had. Sides were average and kids chicken tenders... More

It has been many years since I had eaten at dreamland, unfortunately they have slipped. It was sad to experience. We waited at the front for almost 10 minutes before we were seated. it was Sunday afternoon and fairly busy, but no one person seemed to be responsible for seating. We also had a very long wait at our table... More

This is the second time we got Dreamland ribs and these were just as tough and dry as the first time."Fall off the bone" tender and juicy they are not. I absolutely love their sauce because it is not sweet as most red sauces tend to be. I wish they would secret shop some other rib places to learn what... More

We were looking for a local place to go and watch a football game. Decided on Dreamland after prior positive experiences in Tuscaloosa. Overall had a positive experience at this location as well. I had a half slab and it was plenty of food. Ribs were good but not great. A little fattier than I would have liked but they... More

Came with family to sample the ribs and I wasn't disappointed. You can sit and watch the ribs getting cooked. The most meat I've had on ribs and very tasty.

Dreamland is a local BBQ place with a lot of happy customers. I wish that I could say that I was one. The stew with which I started the meal was very flavorful and gave me high hopes. The ribs arrived covered with sauce. I prefer to add my own, but I can live with the restaurant doing it. What... More

We had a great experience with great service and really enjoyed that my husband and son got to talk with the BBQ pit boss. My kids and I had fun playing the license plate game with the plates that decorate the walls. Good was really good, too!!
