the ribs were tough, the chicken was pink inside.The bbq sauce tasted like it was just hot sauce poured on top, not baked in. The mac and cheese was similar to stoffers frozen food and the beans were just straight out of a can. There...More

Had two chickens to go. When I got them home I wasn’t very pleased upon opening the bags. I thought they were Cornish game hens due to their size. First bite told they had gone on a dehydration diet. I might use sauce on my...More

To be fair, not everyone likes the same kind of barbecue and we are a bit snobbish maybe given our years in Texas. Dreamland is clearly an institution in Mobile and there is often a big crowd. The service is good. I personally prefer a...More

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

Interesting place smelled great but not as impressed with the food. I thought it was neat to actually see the meat cooking. However, for a BBQ sandwich just on a regular small bun was disappointing. The flavor was just ok. The service was good &...More

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

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.

Get the ribs, that’s all I can say! Asked the waitress for a recommendation and she said ribs without hesitation. Thankful she did!

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
