We found Dreamland BBQ on trip advisor as we were traveling through. Reviews seemed mixed but we were hungry and it was just after 10am. Other restaurants weren’t open until 11, so we decided to give Dreamland a try. IT WAS FANASTIC!!! Pork was tender,...More

One of downtowns best lunch spots. The “tips and chips” is a favorite. And the music playing over the speakers is always great.

If you really need a beer and would like to chase it down with some BBQ, but this place up. Loved the Sausage, ribs were serviceable, but I would never order the chicken again.

Ate at Tuscaloosa first time and tried Montgomery location afterwards, Tuscaloosa was GREAT, Montgomery the BBQ sauce was not exactly the same as Tuscaloosa but still great. If you like a vinegar based BBQ sauce you'll love Dream Land.

I've been to Dreamland BBQ several times in recent years while visiting the area and thought the location, food, and service were excellent. However, they moved to a new location since I was there last, and it's definitely NOT the place it used to be!...More

We stopped in passing through Montgomery.. And glad we did. The bbq is delicious, especially if you like spicy sauce. Fabulous ambience, including SEC football, r&b and efficient friendly service. Everyone seemed to be having a fun day. Don't miss it!

I was in search of a brewery and found they had been absorbed by Dreamland and had moved from a location at the minor league ballpark to a spot nearby. I had dinner prior to visiting so didn't eat but my previous visit to the...More

Thanks OldSalt558. Next time try the smoked wings with the Alabama Pale Ale, you won't be disappointed. Happy New Year and thanks for the shout out to Ruth!

We were in Montgomery and went here because my niece wanted to go. The food was pretty good although the sauce was hotter than what I prefer. The portions are definitely skimpy in relation to the cost of the food. Otherwise, the place is nice...More

I don't think they have beef. They do have chicken and turkey options.
