Well, BBQ IS LIKE LIKE RELIGION AND POLITICS. Everyone has an opinion. Some think Dreamland is the best. Me, much better offerings of BBQ in Birmingham.

Quirky little BBQ place. Delicious aroma hits you in the face when you go through the door. White bread and BBQ sauce as an appetizer is served right away. Great service!

Didn't care much for the food after three attempts. My food was always dried out and my sides had not taste at all. It's a NO FOR ME!!
