"Ain't Nothing Like me Nowhere" is the slogan and you will be hard pressed to find big, meaty pork ribs cooked any finer in town. Smothered in sauce and served with more than just loaf bread, a meal here is enough to last the entire day. Other favorites include the smoked sausage grilled over the same pit, Tips n Chips (boneless rib tips and house made chips) and a variety of pulled pork options. Although not the original (that is located in Tuscaloosa) this restaurant is worth the stop. Now serving Coca-Cola fountain products a big change from years past.

This is a must visit when in town. The ribs are fantastic and sides were great as well. Lots of big parties on a Saturday but the staff did great as always keeping the food coming. Appetizers were great, especially the sausage and chicken nachos.

We scheduled ahead and they accommodated all of us! Great manager. Great service. The food, especially the ribs, were delicious. I was the hero Soccer Dad for our soccer team. Everyone claims they gave the best BBQ. Dreamland us the real deal. This is my second of what will be many visits.

Ordered half slab ribs, coleslaw, sweet tea, and banana pudding. BBQ was OK, but not as good as I had expected. BBQ sauce was just a touch spicy. The slaw and 'nana pudding was good. Service was OK although the wait staff didn't seem overly friendly, and seemed more concerned about taking with each other than with taking care of the customers. Out the door for $23 - I thought was a tad on the expensive side for lunch.
