Ate for the first time at Dreamland BBQ in Tuscaloosa today. I've been hearing about this place most of my life since its only about 2 1/2 drive from my hometown of Tupelo.I'll admit I had big expectations. Turns out IMO the food is just average. But there brick pit was cool. Its located in the dinning area so you can watch the cook tend the pit as you eat.

I'll give the people,restaurant and over all atmosphere a 9.

The foods gets a 6.

I took a few pics of the pit.Wish i gotten some better pics. Love that pitt!!

I thought that Dreamland was over-rated when we stopped there too. I found the ribs very tough and the only thing I could really recommend was the banana pudding. When dessert is the pick of the pack, maybe we should try somewhere else.

Dreamland hasn't been the same since Jonathan died. I grew up in Tuscaloosa and the BBQ Dreamland was putting out 20 years ago isn't the same they are serving today.

I worked at the Pizza Hut closest to the joint and Jonathan used to trade us pizza for ribs.

I tried it back when the old man was still running the original in Tuscaloosa. Had heard the hype for years and this was way before they sold out. The ribs were tough old hog ribs with big bones and very little meat, that had been scorched and served with a half loaf of bread. I had been used to eating good BBQ I reckin because I had to push back the plate, leaving it on the table. Have not been back. I have no clue to why folks rave over them (I have tried the new one in Birmingham and Mobile and they were better than the original but not near up to good BBQ around the state) and Big Bob Gibsons, which both are very over rated. All I can figure is the folks that love them have never been exposed to better.
