I live in Colorado, but grew up in Alabama. Great BBQ is hard to come by in the Rockies, but not here at Dreamland's in Mobile! I had a combo plate with pulled pork, ribs, baked beans and tater salad and 2 Sweetwater 420 pints to wash it down with. Could not finish the meat, got the box to go... More

Our first visit in several years and the excellent service and tasty ribs that I remember from our last visit, were not there! First of all the table had crumbs and hair on it. I asked the guy to whipe the table down three or four times and never did it! The ribs that I remember as delicious, this time... More

Driving from NOLA to Ono Island and had been looking for something to eat along the way, but most restaurants were closed on Sunday. Found Dreamland and was more than happy. Service was great as was all the food. Prices were reasonable and we are all stuffed!! Definitely recommend for BBQ

They do pork and chicken, so my husband had the chicken plate and I had the ribs. We each had a different draft beer to share. Service was good and friendly and our food came out extremely quickly. Got info about the beer from the bartender so hope to find it at home.

Visited this BBQ joint on a Friday night and the ribs were cooking! Super nice folks serving up some awesome ribs and fixins. Love the mac'n cheese and the slaw. Their sauce is spicy, thin, with a tomato base. My lips burned a little after eating, but really enjoyed the food and SEC atmosphere.

Unpretentious dining with good food. Paper plates, plastic utensils and paper towel napkins. Food is the reason to go!

A very casual place with carry out. Portions are large so don't make a mistake like I did and order two slabs of ribs for 4 people unless you love leftovers! Inexpensive and the sides are good, especially the coleslaw.

We stopped there while traveling through Alabama. It's about 5 miles off I-10. We had some ribs, quesadillas, Mac n cheese, okra, and their fabulous desserts. Our waiter, Nick, did a great job. The food was awesome and service was quick. We were in and out and back on the interstate in about 45 minutes. It was a great pit... More

Sorry people, but the only thing I order here are ribs. Not that they don't have other good food .... think I ordered something different on 2 occasions over the years, but the ribs are delectable! Something that is odd, is how the taste of the sauce can change. When they server the sauce with bread, it seems spicy hot,... More
