This place is very good. I almost always get the ribs. The sides are great too. But you should know it is Virginia style vinegar based BBQ not Memphis style brown sugar or molasses

Meat has a very good taste, but the bbq sauce was not good at all. And bringing sliced bread out with the same bbq sauce it not a good opener....this is my personal opinion, not interested in how others feel about it. Thank you

While we're happy you enjoyed the ribs, we're sorry to hear our sauce wasn't to your liking. We hope you'll drop back by soon to give us another shot!

My ribs were awesome! The coleslaw and beans were really good as well. My wife is from the South and said it was the best pulled pork sandwich she has ever had. The desserts were made from scratch and excellent.

Our second trip to Dreamland BBQ. Service is outstanding and the food is great. We try to stop each trip through Mobile. It is easy access from I-65.

If you like the spicy stuff this is the place, Prices were bit inflated and waiter got orders way messed up. The sauce was bit to much for me in the vinegar. The cook was cleaning the fire and filled the place with smoke. Probably...More
