“Yes, the banana pudding was great!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for a quick lunch heading back north from spring break in Florida. It was an easy, quick drive from Hwy 65. So glad we stopped there. Great ambiance - quick service (food arrived at our table less than 5 minutes after we ordered); hustling, bustling - quickly in and out! Everyone loved their food - our table had ribs, chopped pork sandwich, cole slaw, beans, potato salad and of course that nana puddin' (tasted like grandmas). The sauce is more vinegar based then we were used to, but we liked it. (We love to try new things). Yummy! We will go back! You should try it too!!

Hint: ask for a sampling of sauce and they will bring out a cup with some fresh white bread as an 'appetizer'

“Great Virginia style (sour not suger) style BBQ”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I have eaten at this place many times and take out from their frequently. They have what I call Virginia style BBQ which is the vinegar type of BBQ not the brown sugar type typical in Mobile. It is real nice tangy with a touch of sour and heat. The ribs are also really good, and the sides are solid, with the banana pudding being our favorite. The place has a sports bar type of atmosphere.

“Wonderful BBQ - Southern Tradition”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Dreamland is an Alabama favorite - here in Mobile and in Tuscaloosa for Crimson Tide football. The ribs, chicken, pulled pork, fries and banana pudding are awesome! The sauce is spicy and delicious. You need to avoid it is you like the sweet mild stuff! Highly recommend!
