    This is the original "Dreamland" even though it's not owned by "Big Daddy" anymore (the original owner), they still have their sweet-heat signature sauce, Yum. It's a must try when your in Tuscaloosa.

    'Aint nothing like 'em no where!' My father use to make a 45 min drive just to have the best ribs in the state. Opened in 1958 only serving ribs, sauce and bread! Now they have a variety of sides!

    Thousands of students and alumni from University of Alabama head here for ribs before and after big games. They are smoky. Your taste buds tell you that when you bite into one. Read more

    Thrillist Top BBQ List: known for its tender, juicy, ribs. Eat enough to be comically full, then eat some of the crazy-good banana pudding anyway

    Ribs, white loaf bread, and sweet tea: what more could you ask for. Best BBQ joint in the southeast so far as I'm concerned.

    Menu has 4 items: Ribs, smoked sausage, rib sandwich and banana pudding. Be prepared for "at the picnic" style BBQ.
