Dreamland in Tuscaloosa Wed, 09/3/08 1:36 PM (permalink)
I have eaten at Dreamland whenever possible for years, but my last two visits (Aug 21 and 31) were the best ever.

Have they changed meat suppliers or something? The ribs, always great, were so much meatier with less fat. Really wonderful.

Has anyone else been lately and noticed a positive upswing?

    We haven't been to a Dreamland Stand since the February visit to Mobile,AL. I am glad to hear good things about their Ribs. They weren't Bad when we tried them, but they weren't outstanding either.

    Now I am hungry for some good Ribs.

      I hae been to the Dreamland in Huntsville, Birmingham, Mobile and Montgomery. The ribs has veried between a 6-9. They were never bad and I have enjoyed all. I really enjoy their sauce. It is great to dip with their bread and soak their grilled ribs. The ribs in Tuscaloosa are different I understand as they are smoked. Some folks liked smoke better than grilled but I personally prefer grilled.

        I guess I's sort of a Dreamland purist. I have not really enjoyed any of the Dreamlands except the one in Tuscaloosa. I do admit, I'm a sucker for atmosphere, and the atmosphere there can't be duplicated.

          I agree with your 'ambience' concept. One thing that helps distract someone from noticing the difference between the original and the duplicate locations is the company you keep. When we met the Roadfooders at the Brick Pit, Wintzells Oyster House, and Dreamland...and even the Dew Drop Inn, the group interaction made each place very special to us. The minor differences in surroundings were lost in the comraderie!
